n.— «There has always been banter—”chirping” as they call it—on the cricket field, but the past decade has seen it elevated to a calculated science as, for example, Steve Waugh and his side pursued what the Australian captain called “mental disintegration.” Frequently this was just a commentary passed around the opposition within earshot of a batsman.» —“Rain may stop play but a good hosing, now that’s different” by Mike Selvey Guardian (U.K.) July 10, 2004.
