Geez, I just played cricket because I loved the game. I never thought about it much, never really had any formal coaching.

I keep a lucky red rag in my pocket when I bat, which has been a good luck charm for a few years.

It’s a hard life as a professional cricketer. It’s not as easy as everyone makes out. To survive you need a tough hide.

WAUGH, STEVE – on being named Australian of the Year 2004

I suppose, because I am a sportsman and travel all over Australia, I see every day Australians doing small and large and often unnoticed deeds; many times I thought how nice it would be for them to be recognised, so I hope somehow that in receiving this honour that I represent these people.

WAUGH, STEVE – 1960-2010 Australians of the Year, Wendy Lewis

I’d like to try to inspire the youth, that’s obviously where our future is and the kids are the ones you can mould and you can give them ideas and opportunities and I’d like to try to inspire all the young kids because I had a dream when I was young, that was to play for Australia.
