Quips, comebacks and quotable quotes from celebrated TV commentator Harsha Bhogle on his 55th birthday.

After Sachin Tendulkar’s last Test innings at Lord’s

Geoffrey Boycott: Sachin may be a great batsman but he has never been on the Lord’s honours board.

Harsha Bhogle: So whose loss is it more, Sachin’s or the honours board’s?

After Tendulkar played a trademark straight drive off Ishant Sharma in the IPL

“Open the textbook, turn to page 32.”

When Tendulkar got out to Michael Vaughan in 2002

“Oh what a shame! It’s like a soldier who survived the war when all the bullets were flying by his nose and then got run over by a cycle in his native town.”

When Rahul Dravid was in terrific form in England in 2011

“Ask him to walk on water, and he’ll ask how many kilometres.”

On Dravid, another time

“Is there a more calming sight in world cricket than Rahul Dravid taking guard?”

On Narendra Hirwani’s batting abilities

“If you make a team with all No. 11s in the world, Hirwani would still come at No. 11.”

On Rajat Bhatia’s bowling

“Any bowler has three pace variations – fast, medium and slow. But Rajat Bhatia has slow, slower and slowest.”

When Nasser Hussain asked him when India will play a football World Cup

“It’s better not to participate rather than getting knocked out in the first round.”

After MS Dhoni lost yet another toss

“Dhoni has yet again called for heads to the coin which has two tails.”

Finally, on himself (or his hair, to be exact)

“A lot of women tell me they liked me without the hair, but the only problem was they didn’t tell me when I didn’t have the hair!”
