Who said what at the Cricket World Cup on Wednesday, the 28th day of the 2023 tournament:
"'Quinny' was brilliant in reminding me to keep my shape, really play the ball where it wants to be hit, don't go looking for it, be relentless when it's in your area but when it's not respect it."
-- South Africa's Rassie van der Dussen who made 133 in a 200-run partnership with Quinton de Kock (114) as the Proteas defeated New Zealand by 190 runs.
"It's important we reflect on this one quickly and go into the next game with a positive mind, you don't become a bad team overnight."
-- New Zealand skipper Tom Latham.
"It's a great stadium. And when you are stood out in the middle, you get goose bumps. There's plenty of things out there to motivate them to go perform in front of what will be a packed house."
-- Sri Lanka coach Chris Silverwood on facing India at Mumbai's Wankhede Stadium on Thursday.
"In transporting him back from the clubhouse to the team bus, Glenn came off the back of a cart and has suffered a small concussion, so he will go into concussion protocols for the next period of time and will unfortunately miss the England game."
-- Australia coach Andrew McDonald on Glenn Maxwell's freak accident when he tumbled off a golf buggy.
"I am delighted at completing 100 ODI wickets but the biggest thing is that all these wickets are for Pakistan and my goal is always to do something that helps us win."
-- Pakistan fast bowler Shaheen Shah Afridi reflecting on reaching the landmark of 100 wickets in one-day international cricket.
"The BCCI is sensitive to environmental concerns. I took up the matter formally with the International Cricket Council and there won't be any fireworks display in Mumbai, which can add to the pollution level."
-- BCCI secretary Jay Shah on the worrying levels of pollution in Mumbai and New Delhi.
