After hitting a fast bowler back over his head for 6 three balls in a row, I was called a slogging c**t. I burst out laughing, which he hated. He then tried to bounce me, and the ball bounced twice before it got to me. Theres nothing more fun than riling fast bowlers.

Fielding at short midwicket last season the batsman dropped it and called for 1, but the non striker sent him back. He then said loud enough for me to hear
"next time, that fat **** can't run, he can't ******* field at all!"

A few overs later scores are tied, I'm bowling and he is on strike. He blocked a couple then decided to go for glory and hit a dolly straight to mid on. I couldn't resist having a little chirp back.
"What a pair eh, I can't ******** field and you can't ******** bat"

Not my finest moment in hindsight but my teammates loved it at the time and the umpire had a laugh about

Being told whilst batting out a draw in Prem league cricket a few years back the keeper standing up said to 1st slip wish this guys mother had swallowed him so we wouldnt have to watch him bore the s**t out of me.

Had to say it made me smile and my partner chuckle when recalling the sledge in between overs.

Been called a C*** etc loads at lower club level etc but just laugh now or smile and blow a kiss always seems to get them going and lose there cool, think its just the casual coy way I do it lol

One sledge I have had most success with is reserved for when Im fielding, and the batsman is a blocker, who bores the **** out of everyone involved in the game.

Blimey, more blocks than Lego Land ... followed by him running down the wicket the very next ball, swiping and missing it, and getting stumped. Cue much laughter, and a mild telling off from the umpire, who was also laughing.

I have genuinely lost track of the amount of fat sledges I used to receive! It's great playing against people now who. Don't even recognise me haha.

Opening the batting for the  club 1st XI when I was about 15 / 16 and their South African overseas bowling me a bouncer, following through up to my face,  and telling me he was going to kill me.

What a tw*t !

I've had plenty of rubbish thrown at me in my time but that's the most aggressive.

One time I scored a ton+, and one lad on the opposition used every sledge known to man throughout the innings. Its quite fun to be regaled with "This lads got more edges than a dodecahedron" and "I've seen more middle on a polo mint" as you launch another six over the bowlers head. Eventually the bowler told him to stfu.

TBH I don't think sledging works. I think it just makes the rest of your team think you're a bit of a tiresome liability.

"more edges than a dodecahedron" 😂 not sure many of our club would know what a dodecahedron is but that's a belter.

Think when I was about 13/14 I hit my first league 50 and the opposition skipper comes over pats me on the shoulder and says bet you think you're good don't you, you c**t. He called me a gravel slovel later in the same game, still no idea what that means in the context but was a warm welcome to league cricket and has stuck with me for years.

In a friendly game last season, we were fielding first and one of our best fast bowlers was getting spanked all over the park by their opener which was getting to his head. He has a habit of cursing himself loud when he bowls a poor ball. Next over he goes to field at long on and as the batsman hit another six he called out to my mate and said "hey baldie, why dont u come back on so i can spank you some more". I was at point and calmly asked him to "calm down mate its just a friendly" to which he told me to shut the eff up. As fate would have it, skipper asked me to bowl the very next over and i knocked his leg stump off first ball and yelled "get the eff out of here!" And proceeded to literally escort him out of the ground pointing towards the dressing room reminding him which way it was. Best bit of karma i have personally seen in years!

I agree with that. Sledging is probably the best thing that can happen to a good but tired or bored batsman at the crease - hits like a pot of coffee!

Playing top of the league last season and this team had an aussie pro playing and he wasn't aggressive as such just constant, I said to the first slip "no wonder he's over here they must be sick of the sound of him down under". Anyway, they had a south African gent playing and he was a tad more smiley, for an older gent he was quite aggressive with it, I played an ugly pull shot that probably came off the splice but it limped for four, he chirps in "that shot was so ugly that your mrs is considering upgrading to it from you" I must admit it did make me chuckle.
However next ball same bowler tries to short ball me again but I cream it and it rockets to the boundary. I shout over to the south African alpha Male type "oi chompy, that shot was almost as good looking as your boyfriend"*

He was not impressed at all, especially when the slip cordon laugh quite loudly. He got the last laugh though when he caught me out.

*I know it's not cool with that type of slur. He was just one of those types of guys and he had already made noises at of our players who wears rainbow laces for the obvious reason.
