“Statistics and milestones are an important motivating factor for me. It’s one of the reasons I play the game, for personal success and also for winning. I think they go hand in hand and if I continue picking up milestones hopefully they go a long way towards helping the team win.”
–Daniel Vettori on his 100th test (source: cricinfo.com)
For the first time, I am seeing a cricketer who openly says that he is motivated by personal successes and records.
Way to go, Vettori…
