- There is so much uncertainty in cricket. One day you can get a hundred, the next day you can be dismissed for a zero. It makes you become practical about things. Teaches you to accept both success and failure. I think I have learnt a lot about life from cricket.
- We should not play like Australia or India or England — we should play like Sri Lanka.
- Quoted in Charlie Austin, "Mahela Jayawardene," Wisden Cricketers' Almanack (2007).
- Mahela is a class player so it would be great to have him back and in the form he was in before he got injured [injured his thigh during a cricket game]
