Sledging - Junior Cricket!

Post by Leo on Tue Jan 15, 2008 12:34 am

Is it ok to sledge in junior cricket? What are your views? It will be interesting to see if the adults views differ from the teens?
I personally think there is a fine line in this... we dont want little Timmy from Under 10's going home crying because Tommy said his mum was fat lol!
I think when we reach U15's we should sledge as long as its not personal!

Lool I found this on another cricket forum...
I once sledged a 13-year-old when I was about 22. He had long, curlyish hair, and it stuck out the sides of his hat like two hair-buns. Needless to say, this led to me calling him "Princess Leia".

He had the last laugh though - he's gone on to represent Otago..

i dont really sledge people. i just give them 'helpful words of advice' of what is happeing out in the middle. I play under 13, i havent heard any sledging. Sledging really shouldnt be involved until the higher stager of cricket eg 15's and 17's and higher because, its harder to get into the players minds at that level. I mean you could tell a under 12 player that the ball is is swinging away miles. He might play for that swing and get the in-swinger and bolwed first ball. what im saying is that the younger mind is more venerable and therefore can be dictated or intimidated easier. The older mind can put up with the sayings in junior cricket and if the older mind was to be dictated or intimidated, harsher and more severe words would need to be spoken

i sledge a little for a laugh or just to let the batsman know im there, but nothing insultive should be said at all in junior cricket, i mean we are only playing cricket for fun, so why take away someones fun from them, being competetive is ok but insults is too far imo.

I sledge at school and club!
My teacher says i sound more like a joker than a wicket keeper and i should shut up!

I agree with Ben its just out of order insulting people...although cricket ability and gear insults are fine!

when me and cricketmad play for our club and school against our district mates there is always sledging. like when we played in a final i put my bat down at the end of the over to do my shoe up and the wicket keeper trod on it and said yuk i trod in s**t! but we won so it was good. also it is always the same annoying wicketkeeper.

I recon it makes it more competitive, which actaully makes it more fun but i much prefer sledging when i'm playing in the adults teams because its far more whitty and clever whereas any junior sledging is just insults which actually acheive nothing, though i do still enjoy a good cherp especaily at the best player in junior cricket because usually the best player in the team in the leauge i play in, is very far up his own backside and thinks he is gods gift and is absloutly offended that you even considered sleging him

i've personally found sledging in junior cricket to not be that prnounce. some lad thought that saying "he's shaping up like trescothick here" when i went out to bat as i quite decent sledge. his response was based on the fact that i had a maxi at the time. quite laughable really.

In one of my games in a tournament for school we watched the team we were about to play who were pretty bad. When they walked off their pitch my team was giving them stick like 'you guys are awful, it's a cricket tournament not bowls' (they had just come off the field from bowling) and in return their captain who had earnt a duck in that game with his Purist Original bat said back 'That was just a warm up. We have 9 county players!' So we bat first (10 over games) and make 93, I made 4 not out, go me! Their bowling was fairly good to be honest. So the captain comes out again with his swish kit. First ball bowled, but its a no ball. Second ball caught behind. So obviously we give him a bit of stick. So he goes and complains to his coach about us and his coach had a go at him lol.

Anyway we go on to bowl them out for 19. 14 extras! I bowled one over for one run and a no ball which I got a wicket on and also a dropped catch.

mostly i find wicket keepers are the loudest mouthed players

i hit a few leg side boundaries... and the fielders on legside were kept busy running around... then one of them said - i belonged in a baseball team with all those horizontal bat shots.
Next ball smacked for six.. i shouted out 'theres a homerun boys - go fetch that' ;-)

Sledging can go against u too, since it might PUMP up the opposition to play better

I Don't Tend To Sledge A Lot......... When Batting Just Try To Get "In The Zone" So When People Try Sledging Me It's A Bit Pointless....
