- One of cricket's divisie ways to get under an opponent's skin is the ace of sledging
- Sledging entails the 'mental disintegration' with trash-talking of the lowest orders
- In an amusing anecdote, personality Anele Mdoda accidentally sabotaged herself
Radio and television star, Anele Mdoda told a spectacularly funny story involving her son Alakhe during a pick-up cricket game.
Mdoda was on-air with colleagues on Anele And The Club On 947, regaling them on weekend activities down in Cape Town that involved a promotion of the upcoming ICC Women's T20 World Cup. The event will take place in the Mother City, Paarl and Gqeberha.
"So... Alakhe is bowling to me. It's whack and goes wide or something. He bowls again and it goes wide. Then he bowls for a wide and I hit him for a 'six'. He bowls again and I hit for a 'four'. You could see that he was getting frustrated."

At that point, Mdoda hilariously noted, the 'Shane Warne' in her came out.
"We were chirping each other. So I'm like, 'You bowl like your mother!' Guys, he was so angry at me. He said, 'Don't talk about my mother!'"
The video had garnered several thousand views at the time of publication.
Load-shedding hits during Bangladesh anthem
Load-shedding has become the bane of all South Africans. The world was given a taste of between four and 14 hours without electricity because of planned power cuts.
During the singing of the national anthems ahead of South Africa's crucial ICC U19 Women's T20 World Cup Super Sixes encounter against Bangladesh, Eskom struck.
As the Bangladesh team sang their anthem, the power inside the JB Marks Oval in Potchefstroom went out, as Sports Brief has reported.

Sports Brief also reported on cricket broadcaster, Zainab Abbas in the line of fire at an SA20 match between Mumbai Indians Cape Town and Sunrisers Eastern Cape.
Abbas was conducting an interview on the boundary, when the explosive Marco Jansen hit the ball in her direction.
One of the MICT fielders dove in a failed attempt to prevent a 'four', accidentally sliding into an unsighted Abbas.
