Sachin Tendulkar is, in my time, the best player without doubt - daylight second, Brian Lara third.
When I turned 36 I realised - the likelihood is that in four years time I'll be 40.
Never give up; just absolutely never give up.
Part of the art of bowling spin is to make the batsman think something special is happening when it isn't.
Find a way to get back in to the game, find a way to build a partnership, find a way to catch a ball, find a way to stop it.
To me, cricket is a simple game. Keep it simple and just go out and play.
All my coaches tell me that I have been under achieving.
I can 100 percent tell you that I have not gone under the surgeon's knife or had a facelift.
I also think there's too many players who say the same boring answers, they don't even have to turn up to interviews because journalists answer their own questions the way they ask them. Unfortunately the way it is now players are so afraid to say anything, but I'd like them to be honest.
I am no dummy, mate, that's for sure.
The IPL is just pure, intense. You don't need all the other stuff. I don't believe in coaches in international cricket.
I suppose my look, the way I play - you combine all that sort of stuff and that makes people interested in what I actually do. So then, when off-the-field stuff happens... I suppose it's one of those cocktail mixes.
I still eat pizzas, I still like pies, I still have spaghetti hoops for breakfast... but it's in moderation now.
You have to watch India in India truly to appreciate the pressure that Sachin Tendulkar is under every time he bats. Outside grounds, people wait until he goes in before paying to enter. They seem to want a wicket to fall even though it is their own side that will suffer
Rahul Dravid being known as 'The Wall' is pretty much spot on. 'The fortress' could also describe Rahul. Because once, Dravid was set, you needed the bowling equivalent of a dozen cannon firing all at once to blast him down.
With Australians we're saying we're going to win before we start playing and pretty much keep on saying that.
The wickets I have played on for my whole career, most of them have been to suit fast bowlers in Australia.
We played well in Kenya. We didn't lose a game and we bowled Pakistan out for 100 twice. We don't need to change much from that for this tournament.
With just about every player in Australia, his whole goal and ambition is to play for Australia. That's why they're playing first class cricket. It's just a different attitude.
You can't afford to live your life with regrets.
My life was falling apart and then to come out and play and have my best ever - 40 wickets, 250 runs... But the only reason I could do that was because of the way I thought and I think I'm pretty strong mentally. I think I am anyway, pretty strong to get over whatever it is.
I think when two people get together, their past is their past. Their reputations are reputations. You can only take someone the way you find them... on face value. I think that was how we were both, the way we were.
I have been trying to lose weight for the last two-three months and it has gone really well. In the last 6-12 months I have been in the best form in quite a while.
I just play because I love playing and I try and take as many wickets as I can.
I've slept with a couple of people and made some poor choices and put things in jeopardy with [...] what I was happy with, and that's my own fault. I've got no one else to blame about that stuff.
