    "Sledging" and Youth Cricket

    Hot Topic in East Devon at the moment. Not going to give you any of the background to the motivation for posting the thread: just want to know what you think is acceptable banter out in the middle, and what crosses the line, for various ages. Will be interested to see how our kids' opinions compare with others...

    I think it's ok after the age of 13-15. After about 13-14, I don't see a problem with having all out sledging.

    Sledge as much as you want! Whether I am playing street cricket, for my school team, or for my club, I sledge a lot, and I mean a lot... I get right into people's faces.

    EDIT: And I don't give a damn when people sledge me, they can sledge me as much as they want, I never really get worked up about it.

    It's part of the game. Let them get used to it, I say.

    I was playing tape ball game with a few friends of mine .I came late and I was punished to play for the others . Those guys never gave me any over otherwise I am a ripper . I got Peessed and in the next match I snatched the ball from my original teams captain and I said I am playing with you guys now . And when the match started there were some fresh graduates of minor class were batting ,I started beemers and hit the stumps on a few occasions . I bullied the umpire upon giving one odd no ball and I shouted a lot upon a "not" run-out and called the guy a lier .
    I was approached by my captain and he said the mosque is right on your back and remember God and please calm down . I just shouted once after bowling a guy out and said to the other captain that HUH HUH HUH it was you who was not giving me the over ,hence I have confirmed that they will always give me the ball to bowl.

    I once sledged a 13-year-old when I was about 22. He had long, curlyish hair, and it stuck out the sides of his hat like two hair-buns. Needless to say, this led to me calling him "Princess Leia".

    He had the last laugh though - he's gone on to represent Otago..

    Sure. Let them show some passion and intensity as long as it doesn't get too offensive. One reason I love to field at point is so I can sledge the hell out of the batsman.

    Another reason: so I can do "stuff" to the ball.

    Sledging is the same thing as trash talking right? Then it's fine cause it happens in basically every sport kids like 10 years old talk trash playing football and ****... i personally get worked up by that **** more and always have a come back...if i don't then i mess up the next play cause i'd be thinking about it and just wanting to knock the bitch out...and then coach benches me...

    But one thing that's not ok in any sport is racial slurs...then you those big rumbles.

    All that I ****ed your mum stuff is as likely to affect a grown adult as a 13 year old so I would say that if its tolerated at the higher levels, then it should also be tolerated at the lower ones. Cursing for under-12s should probably not be allowed though, although that would probably allow them to be a bit more creative as well.
