Here's our top 5 picks of the stuff that did make it on air, including the very recent skirmish between Kevin Pietersen and Yuvraj Singh.

Ever wondered what cricketers say to each other in between overs or during the match. No doubt some of it is not good to go on air, which is why broadcasters exercise extreme caution while letting viewers hear the audio from the on-field stump microphones. Here's our top 5 picks of the stuff that did make it on air, including the very recent skirmish between Kevin Pietersen and Yuvraj Singh.

Number 1: You're not god you're just a cricketer brother, concentrate on your batting and you might play more.

But pie-gate takes the cake! Kevin Pietersen's advice for Yuvraj Singh during the Mohali Test is our top pick.

Yuvi though was quick to serve KP his just desserts!

"I've got him out 5 times... Yaayeeeeee!"

Number 2: Chal chal sone ko baadh me time milega

Kumble's successor features on our list yet again... Captain Cool ensuring his boys were on their toes with some well-timed sarcasm.

Number 3: Ek aur dalega? (Ponting wicket by Ishant)

Anil Kumble though wasn't interested in punning... he just wanted if Ishant Sharma was ready to bowl another over... and boy was he.

Number 4: Ghanti bajao iski.

Up next is Mahendra Singh Dhoni showing us that his wordplay is just as good as his strokeplay! Ian Bell the victim of an MSD pun.

It's racial vilification mate and you know it. (Bhajji-Symonds-Hayden)

At No 5 is what went on to become cricket's biggest controversy this year. And who knew that the humble stump microphone would suddenly become so crucial? We of course are talking about the monkey-gate.
