Great Cricket Sledges: Frederick "Freddie" Trueman (1931-2006)

With English cricketer Freddie Trueman bowling, the batsman edged and the ball went to first slip, right between the legs of fielder Raman Subba Row. Trueman didn't say a word. At the end of the over, Row ambled past Trueman and apologised sheepishly, "I should've kept my legs together, Fred".  Replied Trueman "Not you, son. Your mother should've!"
