Best Sledging Incidents – IV

Eddo Brandes v Glenn McGrath
circa mid- to late-90s

In a showdown of best pacers of two countries, Brandes made up for his complete absence of batting skills by displaying some great sense of humor and presence of mind. Aussie paceman Glenn McGrath was bowling to Zimbabwe number 11, Eddo Brandes—who was unable to get his bat anywhere near the ball.
McGrath, frustrated that Brandes was still at the crease, wandered up during one particular over and inquired: " Why are you so fat?"

Quick as a flash, Brandes replied: "Because every time I make love to your wife, she gives me a biscuit."

Even the Aussie slip fielders were in hysterics.

That is quick wit. My guess is McGrath never went anywhere close to Brandes when he was batting again!
