"Being a professional cricket player is being under pressure"
"There is a lot of pressure obviously, but a good team performs well under pressure"
"Can you please spell that for me?" - Ponting's answer
Stop with these nonsense answers, please.
On the eve of the world cup, we want to remind everyone of the words spoken by the magnificent Australian all-rounder Keith Miller, who had served as an air-bomber during the Second World War:
"Pressure? I'll tell you what pressure is. Pressure is a Messerschmitt up your arse. Playing cricket is not."Hear, Hear.
Let's stop the grandiose posturing and play some cricket.
