Here are some of Sport24's favourite Sidhuisms

"It is better to ride a pony than a horse which throws you." (Referring to Dinesh Mongia, who was like a reliable pony than Sachin Tendulkar, who at that time, was more like an unreliable horse)

"The world is all about mind and matter; I don't mind and you don't matter." (Farooque Sheikh, host of the talk show Jeena isi ka naam hai asked him what he thinks of those who criticize his style of commentary)

"If one-day cricket was pyjama cricket, then Twenty20 is underwear cricket." (On Twenty20 cricket)

"This cricket is like a burger, you can have it once a week, but for a whole meal, you need to return to Test cricket. More than once a week, and it will give you a tummy ache." (On Twenty20 cricket)

"The way Indian wickets are falling reminds of the cycle stand at Rajendra Talkies in falls and everything else falls!"

"Statistics are like miniskirts, they reveal more than what they hide."

"Wickets are like wives - you never know which way they will turn!"

"The third umpires should be changed as often as nappies and for the same reason."

"I lean on statistics like a drunken man leans on a lamppost, only for support, not illumination."

"The only thing you get in life without trying is dandruff."

"Nobody travels on the road to success without a puncture or two."

"Age has been perfect fire extinguisher for flaming youth."

"Sri Lankan score is running like an Indian taxi meter."

"He is like Indian three-wheeler which will suck a lot of diesel but cannot go beyond 30."
"The wily fox is back. It's an ill omen when a fox licks its lambs." (On Sri Lanka's Muralitharan, bowling to the last Indian pair)

"Warne is a victim of his own success. He has taken to women the way an ostrich takes to the skies."

"If ifs and buts were pots and pans, there would be no tinkers." (During a verbal duel with Tony Greig)

"His mind is on the boisterous sea of doubt."

"That ball went so high it could have got an air hostess down with it."

"Ganguly has thrown a drowning man both ends of the rope." (On Sourav Ganguly running Rahul Dravid out)

"Deep Dasgupta is as confused as a child is in a topless bar!"

"He is a constipated batsman, puts in a lot of effort and has very little results to show for in the end."

"He has a backlift like an octopus falling out of a tree, all over the place."

"He chased the ball, as if a young guy chased a beautiful girl, but who never knew she was daughter of army officer and paid the price, with his wicket."

"Kenya in South Africa was like a mountain having labour pains."

"There is light at the end of the tunnel for India, but it’s that of an incoming train which will run them over."

"As uncomfortable as a bum on a porcupine."

"Indian team without Sachin is like giving kiss without a squeeze."

"Eddie Nichols is a man who cannot find his own buttocks with his two hands." (After Eddie Nichols, the third umpire, ruled Shivnarine Chanderpaul ‘not out’ in the second test at Port of Spain)
