Rat Pack CC 1
A team of friends for a friend. Drumroll please! The number 1 cricket sledge of all time as voted by you, is: 1. Viv Richards & Greg Thomas. In a county match in England, Thomas was bowling to Richards and getting a few to whizz past the bat. After Richards played and missed another one, Thomas said: "It's red, it's round. Now fucken hit it!". This obviously angered Richards who proceeded to hit the next ball out of the ground. Richards: "You know what it looks like now go and get it." This epitomises Ratpack CC the masters of sledging but played in good spirits, in rememberance of our beloved and dear friend/brother who is always and forever in our thoughts and prayers. As his beloved Reds Manager once quoted, "How can you tell your wife you are just popping out to play a match and then not come back for five days?" - Rafa Benitez struggling to come to terms with Test cricket. RatPack CC To play against our team you gotta be brave, to play in our team you gotta be nuts!!!

Top order batsman
Middle Order Enforcer "He's usually a good puller - but he couldn't get it up that time" Cricket is a most precarious profession; it is called a team game but, in fact, no one is so lonely as a batsman facing a bowler supported by ten fieldsmen and observed by two umpires to ensure that his error does not go unpunished.

Top Order Batsman
Captain "The hallmark of a great captain is the ability to win the toss at the right time" - Richie Benaud If the highest aim of a captain were to preserve his ship, he would keep it in port forever. One of the advantages of being RatPack captain is being able to ask for advice without necessarily having to take it. (esp with ll captains on the field :-))
