Cricket humor and in particular sledging, has evolved into an art form. Much of the best sledges and banter has come from cricket’s oldest foes, Australia and England.
The history of cricket humor goes back into the dark ages of the game, one of cricket’s original wits, W.G. Grace, on being bowled stated: “Twas the wind which took thy bail off, good sir.” To which the umpire replied, “Indeed, doctor, and let us hope thy wind helps the good doctor on thy journey back to the pavilion.”
Others have contributed to this specialist art form, Javed Miandad and Eddo Brandes have made notable contributions on behalf of their nations.
Here are the some funniest moments in the history of Cricket.
