F1 Aussie Webber urges more Ashes sledging

Former Formula One driver Mark Webber has called for more sledging in cricket, saying the Australians should go even further in their verbal battle against England during the Ashes.

The first two Tests have involved heated exchanges between players -- including Australian skipper Michael Clarke threatening tailender James Anderson with a broken arm in Brisbane.

Clarke was fined 20 percent of his match fee for the outburst but the sparring continued in the second Test where England`s Matt Prior had a running verbal battle with several Australian players on the fourth day.

While Clarke was criticised for going too far, players on both sides have said the confrontations have been largely unremarkable in the tradition of Ashes contests, and Webber called for more as Australia are up 2-0 and on the cusp of winning back the urn. by newstimes
