some old ones but they still draw a chuckle

The Greatest Cricketing Sledges of all Time

1. Rod Marsh & Ian Botham:

When Botham took guard in an Ashes match, Marsh welcomed him to the wicket with the immortal words:

"So how are your wife & my kids?"

2. 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.

3. 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 wife, she gives me a biscuit."

4. Robin Smith & Merv Hughes:

During 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."

5. 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.

6. 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.

"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."

7. Ian Healy & Arjuna Ranatunga:

And of course you can't forget Ian Healy's legendary comment which was picked up by the Channel 9 microphones when Arjuna Ranatunga called
For a runner on a particularly hot night during a one-dayer in Sydney:
"You don't get a runner for being an overweight, unfit, fat c**t!"

8. James Ormond & Mark Waugh

Ormand had just come out to bat on an Ashes tour and was greeted by Mark Waugh.
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 ."
James Ormond: "Maybe not, but at least I'm the best player in my family."

9. Glenn McGrath & Ramnaresh Sarwan
McGrath to Sarwan: "So what does Brian Lara's d*ck taste like?"

Sarwan: "I don't know. Ask your wife."

McGrath (losing it): "If you ever f**king mention my wife again, I'll f***ing rip your f***ing throat out!"

10. Mark Waugh & Adam Parore

Waugh standing at second slip, the new player (Parore) comes to the crease playing & missing the first ball.

Mark: "Oh, I remember you from a couple years ago in Australia . You were sh*t then, you're fu*king useless now."

Parore (turning around): "Yeah, that's me. And when I was there you were going out with that old, ugly slut. And now I hear you've married
her,you dumb c*nt!"

11. Ian Healy & Arjuna Ranatunga

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."

12. Ravi Shastri vs the Aussie 12th man (don't remember who,and don't want to slander anyone) Shastri hits it to this guy and looks for a single. This guy gets the ball in and says, "If you leave the crease I'll break your f***ing head."

Shastri: "If you could bat as well as you can talk you wouldn't be The f***ing 12th man."

13. Malcolm Marshall & David Boon Malcolm Marshall was bowling to David Boon who had played and missed a couple of times.

Marshall: "Now, David, are you going to get out now or am I going to have to bowl around the wicket and kill you?"

14.Fred Trueman & Raman Subba Row

Fred Trueman was bowling. The batsman edges the ball and it 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.

I like the one by Parore on Mark Waugh about his first misses Sue Porter- fair duinkum she looked like his grandmother- Parore was spot on!

There is a good story about Viv Richards but i am not sure who was bowling to him and he kept letting them go the bowler snapped at him see that little red round thing that is the ball your supposed to hit it. The next ball he belted it out of the ground into the carpark and turned to the bowler in slow jamican drawl and said " seen you know what it looks like Man you can go and get it"
