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.
