“I want to tell you that all decisions have been taken by the governing council and approved by the general body. Still as leader of the team I reassure you that if there is any flouting of the rules and regulations or any other irregularities. On this occasion, I assure millions of passionate fans of the league and the game across the globe that the IPL is clean and transparent. We should not allow this brand to be diluted and we will not."He quoted the Gita, appealed to the public and in an aroused self-righteous speech left the stage with a few eyes being raised. There’s still much more to come from him, I feel.
“This man is amazing, he never tires and keeps coming stronger over after over."
“When the score is 250 for 1 and you are looking around the field, there is always Anil who looks you in the eye and is ready to bowl, no matter what the situation is.”
"I'd like to be remembered for giving 100 percent for the team every time I went out there."
"There are two teams out there, and only one of them is playing in the spirit of cricket..."The words showed just how much the game meant to Kumble and that nothing could differ him from that. He was hailed world wide and even people in Australia came out in direct support.
"Legends are defined not by what they achieve but by who they are."
"He [Kallis] has won us a couple of games earlier but today he got stuck," Kumble said after the game. "He should have gone after the bowling in the first six overs but it did not happen today. He should have made a move-on which did not happen today and that put pressure on the guys coming in. You can't expect someone like Robin [Uthappa] to see you through [every time]."Kallis is a match winner and a great player but yesterday's loss was largely due to his batting. He just didn't get going yesterday. The other batsmen fell going for runs and RCB turned what was to be a comfortable chase to a nightmarish experience. Robin Uthappa was in his zone once again, but unfortunately he couldn't get through this time. I feel that RCB fail to use the Powerplay well and depend on Robin Uthappa too much near the end.
"Stifle the batsmen by taking off the pace and unleashing the deep batting line-up on the opposition. Dale Steyn left out on a slow pitch to accommodate the spinning all-rounder in Cameron White. Manish Pandey rested as Ross Taylor came into the side, and Praveen Kumar replaced by Abhimanyu Mithun."
