    Clever/Amusing Sledges you have heard while playing

    This thread is about sledges you have while playing, not famous sledges.

    Anyhow;

    In a school game last year.

    Opposition fielder: Alot of helmets here boys, must be scared.

    My batting partner: Not scared, but at our school we have something inside our heads to protect.

    Decent I thought.

    I was fielding in the covers in a game this season, and the batsman played and missed at one outside off, which was called a wide. Before the wide was called, and having not been able to tell how wide it was, I said:

    "We've got him fishing there boys"

    His reply:

    "Yeah, but I'd need a bloody long rod"

    Even if it was at me I thought it was mildly amusing - the ball was extremely wide, apparently.

    We played against this guy who is a male model. So someone went and printed the front page off his website and sat it down at the crease as he came out to bat. He saw it, tried to hit it away with his bat, missed the first time. All rather humourous I thought.

    Never happened. And it's not clever it's sick.

    It didn't ever happen though, so it can't have been either clever or worked.

    Although I always find I am able to respond to sledging with my actions fairly well - in a game a couple of years ago, having been hit on the head or body 11 times by some short bowling, and then played and missed twice outside off stump (I was 28 not out), the bowler and slips started giving me some lip, the usual "ooh, he doesn't like it there" type stuff. I had had enough of it, so next ball, a straight one just back of a length, I stepped down and slapped him for a one-bounce four over his head, followed by a good old-fashioned glare at the bowler. He glared back, I just smiled and that annoyed him no end.

    Mind you, I was caught in the deep the next over off their spinner, so maybe I got a bit carried away.

    It was just a rumour. Cairns said it never happened in his book.

    Best famous one - is Flintoff to Tino Best: "Mind the windows Tino..." Tino then got out trying to slog Giles...

    One we always say at our club - 'Got him fishing, time to reel him in'

    We were playing against an ordinary batsmen. Our leggie was bowling to him and he had no idea. I yelled out from fine leg "Bowl him a piano, see if he can play that " !!

    True story.
