As we all know sledging is often the most fun part of cricket, whats the best sledge you have ever heard?

Here is a good one from the late great England bowler Fred Trueman

After dismissing a young player, the ousted batsman had the good grace to respond

“That was a very good ball Fred”

Trueman replied “Aye, and it was wasted on you”

I never did have much respect for Fred

Too much about himself rather than the humour in the game for my liking

Not a sledge as such but I can remember reading about a verbal exchange between Trueman and Raman Subba Row whilst playing together for England. Trueman was bowling and Subba Row was fielding  at first slip. At the end of an over in which the batsman had edged Trueman between Raman Subba Row's legs, the latter shouted out apologetically "Sorry Fred, I should've kept my legs together!". To which Trueman replied "So should your mother!!"

Or Flintoff's "mind the window's, Tino"

Either way, as long as it is not blatantly rude it's ok.

This one always made me snigger:

Aussie pace-man Glenn McGrath was bowling to Zimbabwe number 11 Eddo Brandes – who was just missing each ball. McGrath, frustrated, went to him and inquired: “Why are you so fat?”  Quick as a flash, Brandes replied, “Because every time I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit.”

I've seen this one on quite a few other forums and[…]
