Default Sledging

What are the things a bowler say to the batsman having bowling a bouncer or a quick bowl ? What do the wicketkeeper and slip fielder say to the batsman ? Can any guys say some of the famous sledging that is ongoing on the field

There are loads of famous sledges on the web. Here some of my favorite ones... can't verify authenticity though

---
James Ormond had just come out to bat on an ashes tour and was greeted by Mark Waugh.......
MW : "Mate, what are you doing out here, there's no way you're good enough to play for England" JO: "Maybe not, but at least i'm the best player in my family"
---

Greg Thomas (Glamorgan) bowling to Viv Richards (Somerset). Richards has played & missed the last few deliveries...
GT: "Viv, its round, red and your supposed to hit it"
Next ball gets smacked for six
VR : "Greg, you know what it looks like, now go & fetch it".
---

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.
---

Shane Warne, trying to tempt Arjuna Ranatunga 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."
---

In an England v Australia Test during early 1960's Fred Trueman was fielding close to the gate from the pavilion. As a new batsman came out he turned to shut the gate, Trueman said "Don't bother son, you won't be out there long enough."
---

"If it had been a cheese roll, it would never have got past him." - Graham Gooch on the famous Shane Warne delivery that bowled Gatting at Old Trafford, 1993.

Awesome stuff

The Aussies are the masters at it.

I remember them asking Phil Tuffnell if they could borrow his brain to help them build at idiot.

That's not sledging, that's just neanderthals abusing each other.

Anyhow, sometimes pre-match sledging can backfire, as observed by the King of Sledging himself:

Quote:
FORMER Australian captain Steve Waugh has accused Ricky Ponting's team of lacking hunger and being haunted by its own outrageous pre-series comments.

Glenn McGrath, who sat out the fourth Test loss with an elbow injury, was the most vocal in his predictions by repeatedly claiming Australia would retain the Ashes 5-0.

But heading into next week's final Test at The Oval, the world champions find themselves trailing 2-1 and facing the distinct possibility of handing over the urn for the first time in 16 years.

"They don't seem to have had the hunger normally associated with Australian cricket sides," Waugh said. "From Australia's point of view, there have been a few injuries and too many statements in the papers leading up to the series.

"Actions do speak louder than words and they need to perform on the pitch.

"I was never a big believer in making outrageous statements just little subtle hints here and there.
