Practice of insulting opposition, used mainly by Australian cricketers.
Steve Waugh was sledging when he made references to Ganugly's mother.
Sledging or "Mental Disintergration" as it is also known is the tactic of talking to players on the opposition side (particularily batsmen, as taking on a whole team in the field is never a good idea) with the objective of destroying either their concentration or their confidence/self esteem. Sledging is practised in a large way by the Australian Cricket Team, but most International teams partake in sledging. Sledging can be merely an opposition player talking constantly to the batsman, but has mostly become known as players swearing and questioning their lineage.

the intense and delibitating feeling after you take an ecstasy tablet, before you 'come up'. During this time, you can feel like you're going to die, and often need to sit down. This very strong feeling goes away after about an hour, and then you 'come up', sometimes very intensely.
After I took that pill, I was sledging badly, but then came up like a rocket!

Beating somebody you hate to a pulp with a sledgehammer.
"Man I really can't stand Paris Hilton...I just wanna sledge her to a pulp"
"Kanye West is a fag..."
"Yea he's definitely sledge-worthy..."
Sledging can be a very fun fantasy to imagine out in your mind about people you can't stand, and can be quite therapeutic. When somebody's really bothering you or you just can't stand somebody cause he's a big fag or she's a fuckin bitch, you can just close your eyes and imagine beatin the shit out of that person with a sledgehammer (in your mind of course, not in real life).
This is a safe way to release anger and come to terms with your disdain for other people.
To 'sledge' is the art of sleeping very heavily.
