    I play youth cricket and I am mainly bowler. I think sledging is fine if it isnt taken to far i will only sledge if a batsmen looks uncomfortable. In most youth cricket there is no talking any way id rather there was sledging than the match being played in silence which it usually is. Ive played against teams who dont even bother to cheer or make and sign of hapiness when they take a wicket.

    I don't know how anyone can play without making noise, and lots of it.

    Nah, let them get into it. So long as it's not swearing or abuse, it's fine IMO. As somebody said earlier, their primary reason for talking should be for encouraging team-mates.

    Hahaha I have a funny story regarding this

    I bat like Jacques Kallis. I dont play any shots unless I want, I could leave balls outside off all day.

    I was batting and this bowler kept telling me to play a shot, i just looked at him and said no thanks. Then I was trying to put him off, I did a backwards step feint towards square leg when he was about to bowl, we declare for around 600 runs.

    I open the bowling, the same guy who was bowling to me is facing the first ball. I am running in, he does the same backwards step feint I did, I follow him, the ball hits his shoe and ricoches onto the stumps.

    He was walking off and I was basically giving him heaps. Ended up getting 7 wickets that day.

    I enjoy 'getting stuck in' so to speak, but I've found it has a negative impact on my performance and I tend to play far better when I just worry about my own routine...
    Generally most of the 'on-field' comments which could be termed 'sledging' are pretty cringe-worthy and the offender just looks like a twit to both his team-mates and the batsman...Can be pretty entertaining though.

    Think it does have a place in that it makes the batsman feel uncomfortable and unsure of himself, whereas if everyone is quiet and smiling then he feels alot more at ease. A one-liner which delivers the message "we dont like you/ we dont rate you" does the trick, no need to go over the top with abuse and language n the like.
