Cricket: An early contender for best cricket quote of 2014?

Here is a quote this morning from Dale Steyn, reproduced from an article on, talking about fast bowling:

“I’ve got to be in that state of mind to be able to produce spells like that. If I was running in thinking of cuddly bears, I would be dishing out half volleys and hamburgers for guys to smash,” he said. “I’ve got to get myself into a fight – not necessarily go down and abuse the batsmen on the other end but I’ve got to get my body ready for a fight.”

Great quote and a great insight into what makes the best in the world at his craft, and no doubt a few of his fellow members of the Fast Bowlers Cartel, tick.
