Home > Whatever > Sledging


This term “Sledging” might have come up recently, but am sure this is being practiced by us day-in & day-out. We do it unknowingly(most of us do it knowingly) @ office, @ home, etc. Its in human nature (tht’s wht i feel). This was even practiced by our ancestors. There is nothing wrong in Sledging, but as you know too much of everything can be harmful.

So, what does this term mean (i know everyone knows wht it means, this is just to increase the size of this post)?

Sledging – is the practice in sporting events(recent example: Cricket) of insulting opponents to break their concentration and cause them to make mistakes. The aim is to intimidate or distract the player into making a fatal mistake. Sledging thus tries to “break the flow” of the player’s game.

Now that everyone officially knows what this term means, let me give you an insight on why did i decide to write about it, coz there might be 100’s of post already written about it.

Am writing this post, because, i myself participated in Sledging yesterday (31/05/08). I must admit i had a pretty good time. I was not even playing, i was part of the crowd (We were watching IPL T20 Cricket semi-finals between CK – Chennai Kings v/s PL – Punjab Lions). The crowd were supporting the CK & they really took it out on the PL players, not that they weren’t good, but the crowd didn’t like them. They booed PL players, passed comments when they were fielding deep (close to the crowd). The comments were too good, few of them were from my group. We had a ball, although the match was not tht entertaining but we (the crowd) sure had fun. We were within our limits while we were sledging, we appreciated & applauded if any PL player saved a run or two.

It was a fun game. Feel sorry for ppl, who watched it from home.

Looking forward to my next game, have to come up with some smart comments to beat my friends, at the moment they are leading the Sledging Table.

Over & Out.
