Mohammad Aamir
3rd Test Australia v Pakistan
SCG 2017
Run out for 5
Aamir pushed the ball to cover , not a run in it, as proved when run out

SHANE WARNE
" Im not sure who called the run they both sort of took off and no one called
It was a block a forward defence to the fielder
There was no run there at all
A very weird dismissal."

IAN CHAPPELL
" I think they got a run, half each ."

England
1989
This AustralIAN team was dubbed the worst Australian side to visit England
Australia won the first test
This from the commentary box

Ian Chappell : Well I had the pleasure of playing against Tony Greig in the 70s when Australia had a good side and we were winning pretty regularly. This is the 2nd prize, I reckon Greigy being in the commentary team when England are being beaten."

Tony Greig : The fact that England can only win this series 5-1 is a bit disappointing to me as well."

The AustralIANs won the 1989 series 4-0!
The 2 drawn matches were rain affected

Tony Greig was not the only one wrong with the series result
I backed England to win that series !

" You were thinking about tea were'nt you ?
You were thinking about those donuts and sandwiches
You lost your concentration mate
And once more mate, if that was a cheese and pickle roll , mate you would'nt let the bugger bounce."

Said By Mike Gatting
The above was Graham Gooch talking to Mike Gatting as they walked off for the Tea break in an Ashes Test match
This happened as they walked off the field , just after Mike Gatting was bowled by Shane Warnes ball of the century

"We were talking about Shane Warne being in the jungle a couple of years ago and we have a social media group going.
One of the things I had on my phone , remember when he got bitten on the head by a snake , he forgot to duck his head in this thing and a snake bit him on the top of the head and some of the banter around on the social media was that there was more concern about the snakes well being than Warneys."

" Im f......talking to you.
Come here.
Do that again and youre on the next plane home.
You f......test me and you''ll see."

By Allan Captain Grumpy Border
Said to Craig Billy The Kid Mcdermott

Border said this to Mcdermott after the fast bowler had bowled a few no balls in a game against Somerset
Mcdermott  exchanged words with Border
The print media has written that Mcdermott said he deserved what he got from the Border spray a few days later

An irony of sorts is that Craig Mcdermott is the current Australian bowling coach

And then there was the time after a days play during the Adelaide test where Jardine came to the Australian dressing room and knocked on the door to be greeted by the magnificently built Vic Richardson who was dressed only with a towel wrapped around his waist.
Jardine said to Vic "I am here to complain that one of your players called Larwood a b*stard"
Richardson without missing a beat turned to the other players in the dressing room and called out "Which of you b*stards called Larwood a b*stard instead of calling Jardine a b*stard"

It was a typical Vic Richardson statement.

The postscript to this is on the 5AA coverage this year an advertisement attributed the statement to Woodfull. Woodfull was the son of a Protestant minister who later became head master of Melbourne High School. He was a man of high principles who would never have uttered a profanity.

David Saker in a district cricket match in Melbourne in the 1990s
David Saker was tuned down for what he thought was an obvious caught behind decision
He had a word to the batsman
Then moved to to square leg
Then moved to mid wicket for a time

After a while umpire Len King suggested he might like to bowl the next ball
To which David Saker replied something to the affect of :
" Not until you give him out."

David Saker is a current coach of the Australian cricket team
Saker was a good fast bowler for Victoria and Tasmania
Interesting to note he started his SS career when he was almost 30 years old

" I just hope it gets me another game."

By
Dean Jones
After his 98 against South Africa January1994 in an ODI

Bit of feeling in that comment
This was Deanos comeback game in International cricket , after about 9 months
His ODI career ended in April 1994
A rather exceptional ODI player, one of the best produced by Australia

* Another good thing about the innings is that it gets thinks in perspective with regards to Hanif Mohammed, who got 499 and three-quarters , he was run out, playing for Pakistan Railways
We dont think much about a first class cricket team with a railway at the end of its name.*

By
Dean Jones
In regards to Brian Laras 501 against Durham, being a better dig then that of  Hanif Mohammed, in making 499[+3/4 !]
