Get your head out the sand Cricket Australia! I hate how politically correct Australia has become. Warney puts more bums on seats than any other cricketer - even now he has retired!

Sledging’ as I see it, is conducted during the contest as banter to put your opponent off their game i.e. “you suck or you are sucking”, ok its a tactic and part of the culture (country or sport or in this case both).
‘Smack talk’ , again as I see it, although can also be conducted during the contest, and could also be the ungracious applied as, salt in the wound (or salting your vanquished foes land), insult added to injury, after the fat lady has sung verbal slap i.e. “you suck or you just sucked” implying that you will also suck in future meetings.

So based on my understanding, you’d imagine that when you sledge a batsman who just got out, it’s not technically an ungracious smack talk gloating until after the whole game is over as the result is still unknown.

Saying “you suck(ed)” after the contest would be pretty ungracious I’d think.
The black caps and baggy greens got together for beers afterwards I read, saying that each other are “great blokes”.
But as the progressive yanks would say these are “micro-agressions” (rolling eyes) or a storm in a teacup as we’d say (I guess journo’s have to write about something) .

To stamp it out, all you’d have to do is put powerful mics all around the wicket keeper, because really what could you get away with saying these days that wouldn’t offend some group?
Trying to think of safe group characteristics to ridicule…”hey buddy, you bat like a national socialist” or “you faced that delivery like someone who isn’t completely socially inclusive”.

I see this as part of the culture and color that us Westerner’s are often accused of being devoid of (pardon the political tinge there).

There was an Urban myth that was around for years that after his sister was killed on a railway crossing the Australian slip cordon would make 'Choo Choo" sounds when he was batting to put him off.
Chris Cairns had to publicly state this was not true as people had no problem believing that the Australian Cricketers were capable of this level of behaviour.

From a bloke whose parents probably tried but failed to do exactly what he suggested in his last line. Takes a long time for some people to mature.

We’re the masters of the cricket universe and sledging too, with the latter probably falling under the modern PC, anti-bullying “everyone is a delicate flower” influence.

The whole world needs to eat some cement and HARDEN UP!

What does that tell you JBE?

If you're going to sledge at least try and include some humour or wit. Doubt Haddin has either myself but he could always write a few out and learn them off by heart. Healy was pretty fair at banter I gather. In Sth Africa in a leadup match the Aussies were having trouble removing one portly bloke so Healy suggested they needed to put a Mars bar in the middle of the pitch so he could stump him. Problem for some Australian cricketers and a few of their bogan fans is that they can hand it out but hate it when it's returned.

Well, being psychoceramic, Bondy, you know all about cement and masonry. I don't know whether they can get away with sledging after the bowler turns to run in and bowl, but if they do, it should be a no-ball. Can you imagine top-line golfers sledging one another as they address the ball on the tee ? It makes cricket look largely like what it is, a game for d1ckheads !

Or I should say the sledgers have turned cricket into a game only a d1ckhead wants to play. Out for my daily 10km walk recently, I passed a field where a late season cricket match (might have been the big final !) was underway. These were adult players, but one of the batsman looked about 4 foot 6 and barely out of short pants. He was copping a fearful sledging, particularly from a big fatso at long on, who was bellowing all sorts of rubbish. Next thing you know, the pint-sized batsman has unleashed a big swing and skied it in the direction of fatso, who lurches two steps forward, before falling flat on his face, as the ball came to earth a metre or two in front of him. I erupted in guffaws for the next two minutes.

What I used to do when a bowler or a wicket keeper gave me a gob full was smash the next ball to the fence and just smile and star and blow them a kiss.

Used to drive them nuts.

But then again I could play the game physically and mentally.

Not like some of you petals who are so soft you wont wipe your backsides unless there is 4 ply toilet paper.

If there is only 3 ply toilet paper you will hold on until your guts hurt.

I remember one particular game where the opposition was getting into me before lunch. Some of their guys were A1 sledgers and B grade players. A bad recipe. Because however you sledge; you have to back it up with your play.

I danced down and hit the last ball before lunch for 6 and ran off the pitch.

During the lunch break, my girlfriend of the time came down so I decided to have a pretty heavy session with her in our change rooms next to the opposition change rooms which only had paper thin walls.

My girlfriend of the time was a moaner and a screamer and she was really into me so I pointed to the opposite rooms and told her to really go for it.

She gave it a fantastic 10/10 performance, with the echo in the change rooms she sounded like Linda Lovelace on heat.

We finished off together in ecstasy only moments before we had to go back out on the field to bat.

I put my box back in and pads on and walked out back to the crease to the opposition giving me a standing ovation.

Strange how we all differ.    I don't like the sledging in cricket.
good to see that final and NZ players were gentlemen who lost with dignity and their captains post match speech was a credit to his team and Country.
   That's the way we like it .

The bathplugs still won't give us back our Bredisloe Cup.

I remember Ian Chappell telling a funny story about an Australian match in India where The Nawab of Pataudi was batting, and was bowled between his legs, lamenting as he left the crease that "I should have kept my legs together", to which one of the Australian players quipped caustically that it was in fact the Nawab's mother that should have kept her legs together, instead of conceiving him !

Chappell stole that line from Firey Freddie Trueman Max. The story was that Fred was back playing county cricket and as expected had the batsman constantly playing and missing, completely outclassed. Then the batter fluked a nick which went flying down to the young kid at third man who misfielded - 4 runs. Between overs the young lad raced up to him and apologised profusely saying he should have kept his legs together. To which Fred laconically replied - "not thee son, thy muther".

The McGrath sledge is still about as good as it gets. Supposedly had even the Aussie keeper and slips in fits of laughter - esp as McGrath was renowned for not liking being on the wrong end of either a pasting or a good sledge. 

In this one he had supposedly been copping some stick from the Zimbabwean batsmen and after one ball ran the full length of the pitch to ask the rather portly Eddo Brandes why the hell he was so fat. Quick as a flash Brandes responded with "because every time I f**k your wife she gives me a biscuit." Classic.

Spot on.  That story was very reliably attributed to Freddie long before Chappell sought to claim it for his own, top cricketer but acknowledged pr1ck that he ever was.
