Brian Lara famous quotes collection

"You can't play a patience game with them. They take command and like to take command and if you let them, they will."
(Lara on how to beat Australia Cricket Team)

"Sachin is a genius. I'm a mere mortal."
(Lara on Sachin)

"At this stage of his career it doesn't matter where Brian Lara bats. It's important that a guy stands up and wants to bat in that position. It's a pivotal position in any batting order and [Ramnaresh] Sarwan is one of the premier batsmen in our team. And if he puts up his hand and wants to do it, especially with low scores behind him, it shows a lot of character. And you're seeing the results of it all today."
(Lara during West Indies v India, 3rd Test, St Kitts, when he was asked why he didn't bat at No.3)
