Asked to give his views on sledging in the game, Cricket World ambassador Matthew Hoggard tells us that it is a part of the game and that teams will target you if they think they can gain an advantage.

Australian batsman David Warner was recently fined following a confrontation with India's Rohit Sharma and Hoggard talks about how teams will try to get players out of their "bubble" on the field.

"Teams will target you," he warns those who continue to react to sledging and adds that there is always a line that players try not to cross.

He adds that there are different ways to sledge - whether from a subtle approach about a player's technique or the more blunt approach favoured by some.

He also shares an approach that he used on occasion as well.
