As quoted by Peter FitzSimons from a new book, The Art of Sledging by J. Harold. Steve Waugh once said to Ricky Ponting after Nasser Hussain came to the wicket: “Field at silly point. I want you right under his nose.”

“Chipped in Healy: “That could be anywhere inside a three-mile radius.” A laughing Nasser was out three balls later.”

Jamie Siddons to Mark Waugh, who was taking an eternity to take guard in a Shield match: “For Christ’s sake, it’s not a fucking Test match”, to which Waugh replied: “Of course it isn’t… you’re here.”
