TOP TEN SLEDGES OF ALL TIME!

Ah, the Australian wit. Something we all aspire to, especially when it comes to taking the piss out of the opposition in the middle of a cricket pitch.

Fortunately, their victims often give as good as they get... check out the top ten sledges of all time below!




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


NUMBER NINE
Robin Smith & Merv Hughes: During the 1989 Lords Test, Hughes said to Smith after he played & missed: "You can't f**king bat". Smith to Hughes after he smacked him to the boundary: "Hey Merv, we make a fine pair. I can't f**king bat & you can't f**king bowl."



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


NUMBER SEVEN
Merv Hughes & Viv Richards: During a test match in the West Indies, Hughes didn't say a word to Viv, but continued to stare at him after deliveries. Viv: "This is my island, my culture. Don't you be staring at me. In my culture we just bowl." Merv didn't reply, but
after he dismissed him he announced to the batsman: "In my culture we just say f**k off."


NUMBER SIX
James Ormond had just come out to bat on an ashes tour and was greeted by Mark Waugh....... "F*ck me, look who it is. Mate, what are you doing out here, there's no way you're good enough to play for England" Ormond : "Maybe not, but at least I'm the best player in my family"


NUMBER FIVE
McGrath to Ramnaresh Sarwan: "So what does Brian Lara's d*ck taste like?" Sarwan: "I don't know. Ask your wife."



NUMBER FOUR
Yet another Australian witticism with this time porky Sri Lankan batsman Arjuna Ranatunga the victim. Shane Warne, trying to tempt the batsman out of his crease mused what it took to get the plump character to get out of his crease and drive. Wicketkeeper Ian Healy piped up, "Put a Mars Bar on a good length. That should do it."


NUMBER THREE
Fred Trueman bowling. The batsman edges and the ball goes to first slip, and right between Raman Subba Row's legs. Fred doesn't say a word. At the end of the over, Row ambles past Trueman and apologises sheepishly. "I should've kept my legs together, Fred". "So should your mother" he replied.


NUMBER TWO
Daryll Cullinan & 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.


AND THE GREATEST SLEDGE OF ALL TIME...
Glenn McGrath (bowling to portly Zimbabwean chicken farmer Eddo Brandes): "Hey Eddo, why are you so F**ing Fat?" Eddo Brandes: "Because every time I F*** your mother, she throws me a biscuit"
