A term that aludes to a situation in which a person is in trouble. Comes from cricket where on uncovered wickets after a short rainfall a pitch could dry into a 'sticky' which could make it extremely difficult to play on as the ball would be going anywhere.

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.

In cricket a Yorker is a ball that pitches at the batsmans feet. This is the most difficult ball to defend against. Joel Garner had an immense yorker and Waqar Younis and Wasin Akram used the principle of Reverse Swing to make their yorkers almost impossible to play.
Commentator: Got Him! He's gone, amazing yorker which beat the batsman all ends up and knocked his middle stump out of the ground!
