The South African cricketer (he’s considered the new fast-bowling ace) has a way with words. In an interview this weekend with the London Observer, he told this story:
‘I remember then we had a break and the coach said I’d have to play for the Titans in Bloemfontein. Have you ever been to Bloemfontein? I said to my roomie, Paul Harris [South Africa's left-arm spinner], “Oh, I don’t want to go through this.” He said, “You know we don’t want to be here. You’ll have to bowl them out.” I took 14 wickets and the match was over in two-and-a-half days.’
* Remember what he said about his time with the Bangalore Royal Challengers of the new Indian Premier League: “The IPL was only four overs a game and it was like a paid holiday. You only had to work if you felt like it, which is probably why we finished second last.” He later apologized.
