    Just listened to him talking about sledging and how it shouldn't have a part in cricket. Justin Langer pretty much laughed at him and said it was all part of the Australian sports upbringing and psyche.

    Maybe Hussain should have been sat near us at Headingley when the Australian fielders were getting absolutely hammered by our drunken fans, one of them actually bit and got even more grief!

    I think it's got to the stage where it will always be there and a bit of a laugh with the other team is fine. Some of the video compilations on Youtube are brilliant.

    What I don't like is when it gets too personal and crosses the line. I appreciate that's hard to gauge but these guys know what they're doing.

    Best way to deal with Aussie sledging is to absolutely steamroller them on the pitch.

    That's not looking too likely at the moment!

    One of the best "Sledges" had to be James Ormond to Mark Waugh.

    Mark Waugh chirped "what are you doing out here, you are clearly not good enough to play for England" to Ormond, to which he replied: "Maybe so, but at least I'm the best player in my family".

    Don’t you need a slope with snow on it for sledging???
    Something that I would think is not really compatible with cricket.
    But then again I know less about cricket than I do about football.

    Jimmy Anderson to Mitchell Johnson is a belter... as is the one from a twenty20 tournament in Caribbean when that bowler pretends to write a ticket to the batsmen every time he gets them out... only to later backfire!

    Good win for us. Didn't look enough from Australia, but until both sides bat you never can tell and it was closer than imagined.

    Should be a 5-0 thrashing but weather may save the Aussies in one of the games if they are lucky.

    Can't win. Scotland beat us and we beat the Australians so that makes Scotland better than both of us.

    I played at a pretty high standard for most of my cricket life until I retired a couple of years ago. I actually like being sledged/abused. Its been part of the game for years, and like all sports the higher the level the higher the stakes. I've played with lots of county players and a fair few Test/International players and no matter what country they come from, everyone does it.

    I played in Australia, its no different or harder than playing in the Yorkshire League. The Aussies love to make out they are the best at it, they really aren't, unless calling me a 'Pommy [email protected]' is the worlds best score in sledging scrabble.

    Nasser was being purposely mischievous in that interview. England will give as good as they get, theres no love lost on any field once you are on it.

    My mantra was always 'play hard, try your balls off to win, then have a beer with the opposition afterwards'. Sometimes I've said things that were harsh to help us win, but like always I'd always be in the bar afterwards with the opposition. Thats what good hard cricket is like.

    Daryll Cullinan to Shane Warne

    Cullinan was well known as being a bit of a bunny to Warne's bowling. The 2 hadn't played each other in some time so when Cullinan walked out to bat, Warne couldn't resist heckling him: "I've been waiting two years for another chance at you". Cullinan got him back with a ripper: "Looks like you spent it eating..."

    I have it on very good authority that the sledging from some recent series with the Aussies got as extreme as England players' deceased relatives being the subject of ammunition.

    Absolutely dispicable and no place for that in sport.

    He’s mad as a box of frogs Kirby.

    Played against him and he’s an absolute nut job.
