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

Bad enough they put a pro out for a Sunday friendly let alone not clapping a hundred.

Do genuinely talented sides/ players feel the need to behave in similar ways or is it just a low level problem where ones mouth/ actions over compensates?

Played one of the nicest blokes in cricket today - gave three of our batsmen send offs despite not taking a wicket....did nothing but bowl bumpers and followed it up with a mouthful. First time he called our batsman a w@*^%r after him  getting a golden - next one he said cheers for the catching practice to a guy who got a second baller and then finally called one of our batsman  a 'S&t player' despite him being one of the leagues top run scorers. LOL angriest bloke in cricket with no talent to match

Thankfully got promoted last season so don't have to face one of the angriest people I've met, let alone cricketers.

Gave it the full run through down the track, despite only bowling medium pacers and would always shout at his teenage son, even if he did something well, usually calling him a "little pr1ck" or "a useless piece of s**t"

Learnt to ignore him and avoid eye contact, as even a smile at him on his run through led to him literally growling at you!

Makes you wonder why some people play the game...

I imagine it is because that is just how they are and they can get away with it in cricket, whereas if they played a contact sport instead they wouldn't last 2 seconds

^ 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

This. The game allows people to openly bully and verbally abuse people that in any other situation they'd probably get sacked or thumped. All in the name of being 'competitive' remember..

Wepl is now supposed to be banning people for sledging, one frocester lad got banned for a game first week.. not heard of any more since although I suspect umpires just cba with causing issues by reporting it as that's how we are when we get poor umpires.. give them a 7 as it saves hassle.

I had the same incident 3 weeks ago , Playing a Sunday game and i have never been the one to be fussed by verbal abuse , there i times when i Just laugh And just be the better man , however This guy was Pushing it Constantly giving me verbal abuse , i later found out this dad was the exact the same type of Player , I think its naturally in some Players to be aggressive  i do not  mind that, But there is a limit ... I would always believe in letting the ball do the talking

I love winding people like this up! Get them angry and smile at them. If they get more angry, just smile at them, or laugh!
Always good entertainment  :D

Oppo today batted first and were quite vocal about us conceding 'so many' wides. We bowled a fair few, conceding 27 extras in total but when we batted chasing 193 they conceded 49 wides and a total of 69 extras......

Thanks for help boys, we chased it in 29 overs lol

The not out batsman to me today after I got my first wicket
"That ball was so s*it, how didn't it go for six"
Unable to resist I went back with
"Because your mate just chipped it back to me and I caught it, champ..."

Not stupid so much as baffling today...

"Not Out" called to a direct hit run out with the batsman a good meter or so short... "keeper removed the bails before having control of the ball". Keeper wasn't even close to the stumps!
