    Daryll Cullinan and Shane Warne.
    As Cullinan was on his way to the wicket, Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him. "Looks like you spent it eating," Cullinan retorted.
    Warne's come back of spinning Cullinan back OUT of the South African team was a pretty good retort

    Not Ashes but:

    Merv Hughes (paraphrased slightly) to Javed Miandad: I have a low opinion of your character and parentage. ( )
    Javed Miandad: Yeah, well you are a bus driver!
    After Merv knocked him over, he imposed himself between Javed and the pavillion and as Javed passed held out his hand and said: "Ticket please!"

    If you google Trueman, Subba Row then there are lots of examples.

    It would not surprise me if there was an earlier example (ala Grace-Armstrong). Just wondering where you got it from.
    Best Trueman one is:

    Batsman who just nicked a corker Trueman delivery to slip: "That was a lovely ball Fred"
    Trueman: "Aye, and it were wasted on the likes of thee"

    Yeah, the truth of the matter is that around 70% of the "great sledges" we hear about will be apocryphal. At least we know the Sarwan/McGrath one was real, just from the reactions...

    Most of the time what's said out there isn't that clever when it's told later on in third-person. I still enjoy the simplicity of Steve Waugh's response, as a towering Ambrose glared intimatingly down at him halfway down the pitch: "What the **** are you lookin' at?". May be an oldie, but it does the job.

    Agreed most are probably crap, some are still funny though.

    yeah that was in the paper this morning, made me laugh, the umpire was named as Peter McConnell though

    edit Temper Temper
    It's rare that Phil Tufnell was the sinned against rather than the sinner, but during the second Test on England's disastrous 1990-91 Ashes tour, it was McConnell, the umpire, who lost his cool as the pair shared what Tufnell described as "a brief but intense relationship based on mutual contempt". While Tufnell sometimes made clear his thoughts on umpires, at the MCG he appeared to have done little wrong when he politely asked how many balls were left in the over. "Count 'em yourself you Pommie ****," was the reply. England Graham Gooch overheard the outburst and was moved to remonstrate with McConnell. "He wasn't giving me a bollocking for once," noted a surprised Tufnell. "You could have tied my **** together with candyfloss if the old sod wasn't sticking up for me."

    I think this Ashes will be a non entity as far as sledging is concerned.. Bar McGrath, Warne and Hayden, the two teams are fielding a bunch of verbal wet fish...

    Haha funny thing is that playing backyard cricket with some mates today, I could sledged that when I sprayed it everywhere.

    Unlike Harmison, once I got it right I picked up a few wickets

    Wasn't the unnamed Aus umpire McConnell (or something like that)? Tufnell certainly names him in his autobiography.

    Fred Trueman seemed to be a fair character back in the day, came out with a few funny ones that have been mentioned.
