Mumbai: Sledging is an art and the Australians have mastered it. But soon, it spread to other nations who started using it as their weapon. Here are some of the rib-tickling instances.

Steve Waugh and Parthiv Patel


The little boy from Gujarat, Parthiv Patel, had the courage to taunt former Australian captain Steve Waugh from behind the stumps. “Come on, just one more of the famous slog-sweeps before you finish.” You know what the Aussie replied? Well, he said: “Respect me. When I made my Test debut, you were in your nappies.”

Mark Boucher and Tatenda Taibu

South African wicketkeeper, during a Test match, told former Zimbabwe captain Tatenda Taibu: “The only time you seem to score runs when there is one seamer on the field. " When the batsman played a soft drive, which went to the fielder, standing nearby, the South African added: “That’s a great shot Tatenda.” When he left the next ball (Nicky Boje being the bowler), Boucher said: “I’m going to get you out now for you are going to average in single figures in this tour. I’ll walk you to the changing room as well. What’s your average? 9 or 10. I think 9.5.”

Javed Miandad and Merv Hughes

Javed Miandad – one of the destructive batsman of all times from Pakistan – dared to call Australian speedster Merv Hughes a bus conductor. A few balls later, Hughes dismissed Miandad and while he was on his way back to the pavilion, the Australian said, “Tickets, please.”

Glenn McGrath and Eddo Brandes

“Everytime I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit.” Yes, you heard that right. That was Zimbabwean bowler Eddo Brandes’ reply to Australia's Glenn McGrath when the latter asked him: “Why are you so fat?”

Glenn McGrath and Ramnaresh Sarwan

Glenn McGrath at it again. He once walked up to West Indies batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan and said: “What does Brian Lara’s di*k taste like?” to which Sarwan replied: “Ask you wife.” The Australian lost his cool and replied: “If you ever f**cking mention my wife again. I will rip your f**cking throat out.”
