There were plenty of ouch moments cricket had in August 2016. Darren Sammy, for instance, was at the wrong end of a 20-second phone call. Joe Root got bruised for the second time in his career, this time courtesy his own team-mate. But none of that could compare to what came Steve Smith’s way: a zinger from Dale Steyn as lethal as his bowling. A look at the most quotable quotes from last month:

MS Dhoni has been called a lot of things. Daughter Ziva might have the most unique name yet.
