Sledging is the soul of Australian cricket. They are born to sledge. Steve Waugh, Shane Warne, Andrew Symonds, Michael Clarke, Mitchell Johnson are just a few of the fruits of the Australian sledging tree. They have a habit of showing their rash behaviour on the field teasing and irking other players. With changing time, it looks like other team have been able to find a solution to this issue and found a way to deal with the Australian sledging army as the South African batsmen Q De Kock has given Australia a taste of their own medicine by taking a jibe at the injured batsman of Australian cricket team, Shaun Marsh.
During a talk with the press before the start of the first ODI, he said “Four months in India takes a lot out of you and it was straight from there to West Indies, that’s five months out of the country and constant cricket. It’s tough. That’s why I think some of the Aussies are blaming their fingers to go home early.”
This was a clear jibe by the young Proteas batsman on Shaun Marsh without naming him. He seemed to be a typical politician who managed to deliver his message without even taking the name of his rival.
Shaun Marsh has always had injury issues, this time, he was making his return in the Test and ODI team. He marked his comeback with a century in the third and final Test match and was selected in the ODI series as well but an injury has now ruled him out of the South Africa tour.
Q De Kock found something cheeky in this and decided to fire the first shot even before the start of the series.
The five-match ODI series will kick off from tomorrow, first ODI will be played at Supersport park, Centurion.
