Michael Vaughan

What he said:

"He can’t stare at every move he makes and say ‘wow, look at Sachin’. As Test cricketers, you can’t worship an opponent. It is a battle. It is you against them.”

Michael Vaughan wants Ravi Bopara to get over the hero worship of his idol, Sachin Tendulkar, and get down to brass tacks in the third Test at Edgbaston.

What he really meant:

“I don’t want Ravi staring at Sachin like a love-struck pup. It’s war out there.”

What he definitely didn’t:

“Ravi, you can make goo-goo eyes at me, instead.”
