As extolled by this ILx thread. In many ways it is symptomatic of a cricket thread that the first five posts are on a complete tangent about a doll. At time of writing it had made an impressive ninety, lets hope the thread makes its century. Worth it for the list of sledging alone.

Sledging of course being the name the gentleman’s game gives to being offensive about ones opponent’s wives, culture or race. Sometimes I think cricket professes its superiority to football on the grounds of politeness far too much than is strictly defensible.
