Default Sidhu : Cricket = Murray Walker : F1

they'r called Murrayisms !

"I imagine the conditions in those cars are totally unimaginable."

"The atmosphere is so tense you could cut it with a cricket stump."

"Either that car is stationary or it is on the move."

"And now excuse me while I interrupt myself."

"And now the boot is on the other Schumacher."

"Damon Hill is leading ... behind him are the second and third men."

"Tambay's hopes, which were previously nil, are now absolutely zero."

"I've just stopped my startwatch."

"We now have exactly the same situation as we had at the start of the race, only exactly the opposite"

"That was exactly the same place where Senna overtook Nannini that he didn't overtake Alain Prost."

"A mediocre season for Nelson Piquet, as he is now known, and always has been."

"There's only a second between them. One. That's how long a second is."

"He's obviously gone in for a wheel change. I say obviously because I can't see it"

"Do my eyes deceive me, or is Senna's Lotus sounding rough ?"

"Alboreto has dropped back up to fifth place"

"As you look at the first four, the significant thing is that Alboreto is 5th"

"I can't imagine what kind of problem Senna has. I imagine it must be some sort of grip problem"

"He is shedding buckets of adrenalin in that car"

"It's raining and the track is wet"

Murray: There's a fiery glow coming from the back of the Ferrari
James: No Murray, that's his rear safety light

"... Cruel luck for Alesi, second on the grid. That's the first time he had started from the front row in a Grand Prix, having done so in Canada earlier this year..."

"The Jordan factory is at the factory gates"

"... and there's no damage to the car ... except to the car itself."

"The beak of Ayrton Senna's chicken is pulling ahead"

"... and I interrupt myself to bring you this...."

"This is an interesting circuit because it has inclines, and not just up, but down as well."

"Only a few more laps to go and then the action will begin, unless this is the action, which it is."

"... the lead is now 6.9 seconds. In fact it's just under 7 seconds"

"You can't see a digital clock because there isn't one."

"... but Here is Now and There is Damon Hill..."

"... and the Peugeot cup of misery is filled past overflowing..."

"Schumacher is still the fastest man on the track, not only by virtue of the fact that he leads the Australian Grand Prix, but he also holds the fastest lap"

Murray: "And there are flames coming from the back of Prost's car as he enters the swimming pool."
James: "Well, that should put them out then."

"... and he's lost both right front tyres"

"Alesi is in second place and Hill is in second place..."

"As you can see, visually, with your eyes..."

"Andrea de Cesaris ... the man who has won more Grands Prix than anyone else without actually winning one of them."

"Unless I'm very much mistaken ... yes, I AM very much mistaken."

"Oh that's the Forti, and, it looks like, err, its Roberto Moreno's car, the err Brazilian .. I was going to say the elderly Brazilian, he's only 36 but he's actually the oldest driver in the race at the present moment, though he's just retired from it!"

"... Schumacher crosses the line to start another lap, and there's nothing there!"

"... this is the part of the circuit where the Williams tends to be, not tends to be, is slower than the Benetton historically, today."

"The Benetton handling superbly as ever. Williams have worked very very hard on this car at the beginning of the season."

"And we have had 5 races so far this year, Brazil, Argentina, Imola, Schumacher and Monaco!"

"And there's a dry line appearing in the tunnel [pause] Obvious really as it has a roof"

"... and now, just in case there is any confusion this is the race order on lap 19: David Coulthard leads and has yet to stop; Hakkinen leads and has yet to stop..."

"Nigel Mansell - the man of the race - the man of the day - the man from the Isle of Man"

"An Achilles heel for the McLaren team this year, and it's literally the heel because it's the gearbox"

"Now the Frenchman Jacques Lafitte is as close to Surer as Surer is to Lafitte"

"Mansell is slowing it down, taking it easy. Oh no he isn't! It's a lap record."

"It's not quite a curve, it's a straight actually."

"This race will actually develop into a Grand Prix"

"... and Damon Hill is following Damon Hill"

"Schumacher has made his final stop three times!"

"And that just shows you how important the car is in Formula One racing"

"And he's done that in a whisker under 10 seconds, call it 9.7 in round figures".

"Into lap 53, the penultimate last lap but one"

"Nigel Mansell is the last person in the race apart from the five in front of him."

"There goes Panis in the Prost. For years we knew them as Ligiers, because that is what they were called."

"And I usually say that if anything is going to go wrong with the car, it has done by now, but I'm not going to say that about Jacques Villeneuve ... Oh, I already have."

"Rally points scoring is 20 for the fastest, 18 for the second fastest, right down to 6 points for the slowest fastest."

"He will not produce a winner, but if he can produce second, it will be the next best thing."

"And Panis is almost literally laughing his head off in that car."

"I don't make mistakes. I make prophecies which immediately turn out to be wrong"

Hilarious stuff dude. Just too good.

Apart from these,i like a fwe of Sidhu's quotes to.

Just to name a few :
1. Sri Lankan score is running like an Indian taxi meter
2. Statistics are like miniskirts, they reveal more than what they hide.
3. He is like Indian three-wheeler which will suck a lot of diesel
but cannot go beyond 30!
4. Deep Dasgupta is as confused as a child is in a topless bar!
5. That ball went so high it could have got an air hostess down with it.
