Sledging in cricket

April 1st, 2007 · No Comments · Cricket

There has been a bit of media about sledging in cricket lately. I don’t think a little bit is too bad, but when the sledging includes racist remarks, excessive bad language or personal remarks about the players wife/mother/children etc., it has gone too far. Here are a couple I found that are ‘family friendly’ – I think we should encourage this sort of thing.

you have more misses than henry the 8th!
you have more blocks than a lego set
you have more edges than a 50 cent piece
you have more leaves than a tree
he’s swinging like a rusty gate!
got more dots than the bible in braille!
bowl him a piano, see if he can play that
he couldn’t cut a slice of bread
