Cricket Sledges: Merv Hughes

During a tour game in South Africa, Merv Hughes was bowling to the South African captain, Hansie Cronje. It was an especially flat wicket and Cronje was hitting Hughes for fours and sixes.

After quite a number of boundaries, Hughes headed down the pitch, stood near Cronje and loudly broke wind.

He then turned to Cronje and said "Try hitting that for six."
