Look at this quote from Ricky Ponting (source DNA):
“I certainly hope that's not the case. I would not like to see exciting young players from Australia, or any other country, miss having the opportunity to play international cricket.
Also, being one of the lowest paid international players, my bum is turning green with envy, mate. All I'm getting are some crappy ad shoots with Valvoline. WTF, mate, wtf? I'm one of the top test batsmen, mate.”
Ok, so maybe the last paragraph was a little concocted, but you get the picture.
