    Icon5 Cricket Sledges

    Hey guys.
    I'm an aussie so a few of the sledges will work only for me but i want to hear your best sledges to use in a game. I'll kick us off with my best ones:

    -Buckle up boys, this guy can't drive

    -Worse connection than vodaphone/telstra

    -Less singles than eHarmony

    -Less singles than One Direction

    -More LBW's than Shane Watson

    -Send the bails to New South Wales

    -The stumps are hungry give 'em a cherry

    -The stumps are having a party lets crash it

    -His bat's like a donut, no middle just edges

    -Pass me the ball I need to pull out the splinters

    -I've seen better batters at a fish and chips shop

    -More blocks than Minecraft

    -More blocks than a lego set

    -More leaves than a gum tree

    -If you wanna drive go hire a car

    -Give him a yorker and he'll be a walker

    -At his toes and off he goes

    -Send the stumps to the dump

    -Swinging like a rusty gate

    -More edges than Cook

    -Hire a new cleaner, this guys sweeping is awful

    -More no's than a questionnaire

    -More dots than a dalmatian

    -He's as fresh as a freezer

    -Big swing no ding

    -More swings than a childs playground

    -No smash just trash

    -More misses than Osama Bin Laden

    Not keen on sledging myself but when I received any I used to find that "**** off ****s" got my message across

    See I wouldn't call any of them sledges. They are just things to say to get a small laugh/pump up your team in the field.

    That's like the most comprehensive list I have ever seen. That is a valuable resource on the Internet. I was going to chime in with more dots than a dalmation but you had it

    I am actually against real sledging which is essentially calling someone a ****wit etc - we had a debate here on CW about it and it was me against the australian crew. In the end they influenced me somewhat but I still don't think sledging should be part of the game as cricket is supposed to be a gentleman's game and gentlemen don't call people ****wits.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    my favourite is when the bowler starts sledging the fielders or vice versa.
    The sort of general malaise that only the genius possess and the insane lament.

    Never really agreed with the idea of talking **** to the batsman myself, I just chime in to encourage the other fielders and bowlers

    Even indirect sledging like "this guy has no idea" or "big gap at cover" without the fielder directly saying it to the batsman is fine IMO, but I can't ****ing stand ****s who go and talk right at the batsman

    Yep, which I am all for as it can be a long day in the field.

    I'm interested in what you say to the teams good batsman? Almost all (if not all) are mainly just going to make sense to the batsman in bad form or the tail.
