    Classic..i remember reading that on a BBC page months ago when they covered good sledges apparently the Australian Slip fielders were in histerics for ages after that.

    Here is one I told our opening bowler during a club match...

    Unfortunatly it went down like a lead baloon with their captain who was batting at the time and was twice my age.......

    Merv Hughes was involved in an exchange with Robin Smith at Lord's in 1989, when he told Smith: "You can't f***ing bat." Smith then clouted the next ball and told Hughes: "Hey Merv, we make a fine pair. I can't f***ing bat and you can't f***ing bowl."

    Rod Marsh and Ian Botham. When Botham took guard in a Ashes
    match, Marsh welcomed him to the wicket with the immortal words: "So how's your wife and my kids?"

    Daryll Cullinan and Shane Warne. As Cullinan was on his way
    to the wicket, Warne told him he had been waiting 2 years for another chance to humiliate him.
    "Looks like you spent it eating," Cullinan retorted.

    Merv Hughes and Javed Miandad. During 1991 Adelaide Test,
    Javed called Merv a fat bus conductor. A few balls latter Merv dismissed Javed: "Tickets please", Merv called out as he ran past the departing batsman.

    Ricky Ponting and Shaun Pollock. After going past the
    outside edge with a couple of deliveries, Pollock told Ponting: "It's red, round and weighs about five ounces." Unfortunately for Pollock, the next ball was hammered out of the ground.
    Ponting to Pollock: "You know what it looks like, now go find it."

    Not sure if these are the right players so feel free to correct.

    First three are definitely correct - last one is Viv Richards and Greg Thomas

    That was one of the other options for that particular one but I randomly picked Ponting and Pollock. Cheers

    Seems recent cricketers can't be funny without swearing from my research.

    Not just recent ones.

    I was once told (think it was by Mike Smedley of Notts) this little gem...

    Fred Trueman bounced Mike Smedley (or whoever it was, let's assume it was) and nearly took his head off

    <MS> Is that all you've got, Fred?

    Now THAT's sledging
