I also wonder if professional cricketers actually feel the need to shout a weight in pounds and ounces every time they pick up a cricket bat.

Similar comment for me yesterday. Don't think it occurred to brains of Britain behind the stumps that a bat might be tidied up ahead of the first game of the season... but it is hard to come up with a witty comeback explaining nerdy tendencies :) The nice irony was the only guy who did have a new bat (straight from Sports Direct no less) hit a solid 49 to keep us in the game

It wasn't even cleaned up! Numerous cherries on it, but i agree i couldn't think of anything to come back at him with so I figured better to leave him to it. He didn't shut up all game though

I've had keepers and slips talking nonsense all game a few times in the past. It actually annoyed me which helps me bat. On one occasion it was just so irritating I just kept on replying along the lines of 'god, this is boring chat' or 'I'm embarrassed for you' etc. I also started talking a lot from the non-strikers end encouraging my partner.

I'm not sure if it was a good thing to do but I hadn't heard a batsman do that before so I thought why not.

I'll always encourage my partner from the non strikers end, especially if they're struggling a bit or its a good ball. "Good leave" "solid mate" or a "no joy for them there" are regular ones from me.

I also like a "it's the pitch, mate, he's not got much" between overs as the bowler passes, with advice to the contrary once he's gone if required!

As a keeper I'd talk even more rubbish if a batsman responded like that, likely that the slips and close fielders would also join in. Best make sure you don't play any bad shots or score slowly otherwise your remarks would be returned on you.

They were talking so much I didn't think they could get any worse. I don't mind a bit of talking and encouragement but when it is just nonsense and really boring stuff I can only take so much.

^ completely agree. In our game the slip stood appealing with his arms raised and shouting for so long i started singing the theme tune to 'YMCA'...

I tend to find that joining in their conversation stops any chirp.

Last game of last season we were playing the top /undefeated side in the comp . Rain affected green top , I'm opening the batting , leaving a lot of balls. The bowlers were getting frustrated.  One of them bowls a ball , i leave it . He says "you're so fn sht you should do us all a favour - kick your stumps over so you can f off". I smiled and said "well bowled mate" . Next over he once again told me what he thought of me . I replied " yeah  mate , i know how sht i am , but YOU haven't got me out yet . While you walk back to your mark why don't you put two and two together " . His teammates laughed and said i had a point . One of them even called the bowler crap too .

I play for a mixed ability wandering team that just plays Sunday friendlies. The other week we played one of the bigger clubs in our area that fielded five first team players including three bowlers, the wicket keeper and their South African overseas all rounder. We limited them to 220-8 and then set about knocking them off. After losing a couple of quick wickets our number four played a great knock scoring 110n.o.
He was subject to incessant sledging throughout his innings including a priceless moment when the first team quickie run down the wicket after being pulled for yet another four in front of square and bellowed "You're f#%king s#it mate, you've only got one shot" almost simultaneously his captain was screaming at him "That's fu#*ing s#it, will you stop feeding that fu#%ing shot of his!
Another highlight came when our bat was on 94n.o and the wicket keeper was trying to gee up the SA overseas who was into his last over, "come on JJ, let's shatter this losers dream of a hundred...he doesn't even play league cricket" The irony seemingly lost on him that the best bowlers in his club had just been put round the park by someone that "doesn't even play league cricket".

^ because its an easy opportunity to get away with bullying someone.  There's no need for it and it makes them feel better about themselves

The worse thing was they didn't even clap him when he got his hundred. Classy bunch of blokes.
