I’ve never sledged, it just happened around me – Gilchrist

The culture of sledging is slowly fading away from the game of cricket as the International Cricket Council (ICC) is trying to discourage such things to avoid any unnecessary controversy on the field.

The Australian cricket team was renowned for its brutal on-field sledges which often initiated controversies in the past, however, things have changed in their setup after last year’s ball tampering controversy investigation unearthed some disturbing details about Australian cricket.

In a recent interview, former Australian wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist was asked some interesting questions in a fun way. When asked about the most racial sledge he ever heard, Gilchrist said that he never indulged in such behavior, but it was everyone around him who did that most of the times – pun intended.
