Here is a look at some of the most memorable Brett Lee Scott quotes.
“You might pitch a ball on the off stump and think you have bowled a good ball and he walks across and hits it for two behind midwicket. His bat looks so heavy but he just waves it around like it’s a toothpick.”
“We tried to work on being ruthless, just hitting the top of off-stump consistently.”
“Use sitting for most climbs, especially when in a group sitting is the most efficient way to climb and the most common climbing position. Sitting is good for economy and endurance. When you stand you use about 12% more oxygen and spike your heart rate by about 8% so it makes sense to stay seated as often as you can.”
“Remember, climbing is about establishing a pace and a rhythm that will get you to the top. You do not want to be in oxygen debt as it will be hard to come back from that. ”
“One breathing trick used by the pros to get great oxygen transfer is to push your stomach out as you inhale. This takes practice. Most of us naturally pull our stomachs in when we inhale.”
“My plan, when I walked out on to the field on Friday morning, was to just enjoy myself because when I’m smiling and having fun I generally bowl my best.”
“Keep your hands on the break hoods or about a thumb’s length from the stem on either side of the bar. You will have more control, breathe easier, and stay loose.”
“It’s very challenging. The most important thing you need as a sportsman is to be clear on what you’re actually doing.”
“It’s always a fine line. If you overdo (aggression) it’s ‘ugly Australians’, but if you have a smile on your face it’s Australia being too nice.”
“It will go down as one of the great moments in sportsmanship. He could have hugged his mates and celebrated, but he chose to put his arm around me.”
“I build myself up with confidence with aggression, and confidence to control the game. If you’re the bowler and you’ve got the ball in your hand you’re controlling the game, so you’ve got to make sure the batsmen knows who’s boss.”
“I bowl my best when I am fittest and the best way to get fit is to bowl. That’s how you get your rhythm. You cannot really find a rhythm by bowling in the nets.”
“I am keen on helping Indian bowlers but I am not seeking a full-time role. But yes I am really keen on helping out pace bowlers across the world.”
“Growing up, you look at guys like Jeff Thomson as heroes, so going past him is pretty special.”
“But I’m training hard and I’ve put myself in a position where I hope I can sustain that.”
“As a Test cricketer you expect that at times you’re going to be heckled, and you must have a thick skin.”
