Sport quote of the day

A test is as slow as your strike rate.

Wasim Jaffer scored 202 runs in just 274 balls! A strike rate of 73.72 with 34 fours in a test match is what sets him far ahead in the league of good test cricketers. So while one finds test cricket a tortoise-slow match, cricketers like Wasim Jaffer make it an interesting watch. Good speedy show Wasim, congrats!
