1) Sri Lankan skipper Arjuna Ranatunga (pictured above) was not the most popular figure on the international circuit, and was perhaps most unpopular with the Australians (perhaps because he did rather well against them). One occasion, the great spinner Shane Warne was trying to lure the comfortable figure of Ranatunga down the pitch and was being frustrated by Ranatunga's unwillingness to be tempted. Wicketkeeper Ian Healy piped up: "Put a Mars Bar on a good length. That should do it."
2) South African Daryll Cullinan (pictured above) became famous as an easy wicket for Warne and as he once came to the crease, Warne taunted him by saying he'd been waiting two years to have another crack at him. Cullinan retorted, "Looks like you spent it eating."
3) Fast bowling great Fred Truman (pictured above) would have a go at his own team-mates, never mind the other team, if he thought they'd done him wrong. After an outside edge flew through the legs of a slip fielder, the guilty party? Raman Subba Row ? trotted up to apologise: "Sorry Fred, I should have kept my legs together." Truman responded, "So should your mother."
