Sledging seems a bit lame

I'm a big fan of our keeper's tactic of "reverse sledging". If the batsman plays a crap shot, he'll only compliment the bowler on the delivery. If the batsman hits a nice shot, he'll tell them how nice it was and offer technical tips. Amazing how effective it is.

^ Compliment are brutal!

My sincere compliments have resulted in some fine batsmen getting out early. Not that I was trying to get them out though. :D

Im going to digress a little but 99% of sledging is terrible anyway. I just completely blank the fielding side.

I absolutely despise my team complimenting the batsman (other than a respectful clap for a ton) or entering jovial banter / friendly chat. Im a keeper and i very rarely say anything and if a batter speaks to me ill just vacantly  stare at them. Nothing worse than making a batter feel comfortable / at home at the crease. (In league matches, friendlies is obviously very different)

Mine is quite similar to @jjelricksmith's story. I played my first mens league game when I was 11, I came in at about 8 when we were chasing, still needing 100 odd runs to win. Me and the bloke at the other end put on a bit of a partnership which rubbed them up the wrong way. The wicket keeper in particular started calling me all sorts of names (including c#$%), making sounds as I was about to hit the ball etc. I eventually got out and we ended up losing the game. My dad arrived as the game was wrapping up and I could see I was upset so I told about what happened. When they were walking off after the game he went over the wicket keeper to ask him why he called his son a c#$%, their skipper then decided to throw a pint over my dad, so he turned around and decked him! Apparently the skipper was a known trouble maker in the league, him and the keeper ended up getting banned for the rest of the season.

Quite the introduction into mens cricket :D

Mostly we just sledge our own fielders.

Hate it when teammates start nasty comments towards the oppo. Ruins a good afternoon out.

Think my favourite recent one was one of our younger lads dryly remarking that he had seen milk turn faster than his team mate at coverpoint who was going after the ball.

Sledging an 11 year old is pretty tragic

One thing I've learnt from this thread is that there are some really sad individuals playing that think it's ok to verbally abuse kids. Absolutely ridiculous.

as a no 10 batter oppos every comment feel being sledged! :D
once keeper said something about yellow Albion helmet, i pretended as if i didn't hear anything, something to with aussie
once I batted at no 7, guy started saying, 'you haven't hit a 4 yet', next delivery was hit for 4,(mid wicket), i then said, 'that was a 4'
once i went to bat against an Asian team, one of the guy started talking about, how good H Pro bats are, I was using one, I hadn't even taken the guard yet.

Exchange kids for anyone and its an accurate statement. Still, apparently its part of the game and shows youre more competitive

I don't advocate or condone verbally abusing anyone, especially on a sports field where you're playing for fun, but there's something about a jumped up arsehole calling a 10-12 year a old a 'c*&t' that really, really, really annoys me and if I heard that on a cricket field I'd find it hard not to lamp the guy. Who the hell do these people think they are.

We played one such moron (polite way of saying it) last season. Shockingly, he was less keen to repeat his comments when faced with our 6"5 South African rugby playing number 6 than the 14 year old he'd just been giving abuse to. Pathetic at any level of the game but especially in low division league cricket.

I disagree...I think sledging works. As Steve Waugh said it is mental disintegration and I have seen batsman coming under pressure with some smart reminders of the match situation and required run rate etc.

However, one should not cross the boundary. I would never allow anyone from my team to say or do anything rude/unreasonable on the ground.

Btw I sit on the conducts committee of our association. So most people behave against us :-)

Depending on how you define sledging, I think it can work too. But I don't mean abuse. The right chat can get under a batters skin and can cause a loss of concentration.

I have to admit I still don't like it though.

He is an international batsmen playing the highest level. NOT playing fourth grade in the local park or Div 8 on the local council pitch.

I just laugh now when people try and sledge me and as a keeper i just give encouragement to my team mates and make no comment to the batter what so ever.
