    I've been saying it repeatedly. We need this in Test cricket. If you're going to insult someone's kid, you need to be prepared to take a stump to your face.

    Indeed. Harbhajan's sledge of Symonds, imo, was the beginning of the end of Symonds' career. Not because of what was said, but because of what followed.

    An already fragile personality just did not cope with the fall out and it was a slippery slope to oblivion.

    Sort of thing I meant about non-offensive is when we were playing last year and the opposition needed about 10 to win, two wickets in hand.

    Young bloke batting who'd had a bit to say. Ball goes down leg, flicks his pad. We all go up and he says "Get ****ed". I was at 1st slip and asked what was wrong. He said "you can't appeal for that". I said "mate, we can ask the question"
    "Not for that"
    "Why don't you just bat and let the unpire, umpire?"
    "**** off, I'll shove this bat up your arse"
    "Use the bottom so I get a thrill".
    He goes down over his bat and just as the bowler is about to run in I said " Don't gas up young fella".
    So he stops the bowler, turns to me, points his bat, looks at the umpire and says "he sledged me". Umpire didn't hear anything. Play on.
    Next ball, spoons it to cover. We won by eight. Boys happy. To his credit he shook my hand after and admitted I'd got him good.

    Sorry it was a bit long-winded.

    In my team (recently defunct) we always used to give a little bit to the batsmen but it wasn't ever offensive. The more personal and offensive stuff was reserved for each other and, in particular, our skipper, who copped an awful lot.

    I have to say that sledging is a great tactic in cricket, but is a difficult skill to perfect. I have played against and alongside some absolutely awful sledgers, who's box of tricks consists of expletives and mum jokes.

    I think a lot of it depends of situations and who the opponent is, for example in my team we have played two games this season. In both games, after we had taken a wicket by bowling a batsman, and a new batsman was at the crease, the umpire paused the game for the square leg to straighten the stump.

    In the first game, with the eldery umpire taking an age, i loudly professed that it was a waste of time as the stumps would be all over the place again in a minute, everyone laughed, including the batsman, who went on to get a few runs.

    The next game, in the exact same situation I recycled the joke, and got the reply 'Your teeth will be all over the place', needless to say he was clean bowled first ball, and gave me a barrage of abuse when i suggested he could come back and I would ask the bowler to bowl underarm.

    moral of the story - don't be a dick.


    Also, when im batting I try and try and try not to get involved at all, unless you are good enough to bat all day and not get out, then you never win. To just smile or stare someone down seems to be enough to wind up the opposition. Ive also found when things are getting heated, just hovering your bat out of your crease results in an untold number of overthrows.

    Yea it is - I posted the other one cause it involved the flyers. That was so great, would love to see that in cricket. People would shut the hell up for one.

    Haha yes. Get the feeling they are giving half of what they've got to balancing themselves.

    If it happened in cricket it will be even more ridiculous. The two batsmen in the middle will murder the entire fielding side.

    There is a code, you don't fight with sticks. You only fight other enforcers. You don't fight at the beginning of the shift because waiting until he is tired is unfair. The refs will allow it in the NHL as long as certain unwritten rules are met.

    Of course, in Harbhajan vs. Symmo, this would happen, but it'd be worth it still. And Bhajji would keep his mouth shut next time.
