Makeshift beds, broken teeth and a lack of clarity regarding the exact status of Mitchell Marsh's facial hair in this week's Twitter round-up.

The pauper
You probably think you're getting to know Kemar Roach by now, but maybe you should shelve your preconceptions. He might yet have the capacity to surpriseā€¦

Or you could just retain your preconceptions until they are proven entirely accurate.

The look

At least you've got a bit of time to practise.

The bed
Middlesex's Gurjit Sandhu describes himself in his Twitter bio as someone who can sleep for a long time. Apparently, he's also up for a challenge.

The ambiguity

As in, it's no longer there, or it hasn't grown?

The issue
Has anyone got a problem with how Jade Dernbach feels about life?

It seems an odd thing to take issue with, but presumably someone has.

The idiots

It's "ignorami". Also, "dumb ignoramus" probably counts as tautology.

The questions
Who says that the short nature of a tweet means that readers don't always get a clear idea of the situation that's being described?

Do teeth just break of their own volition sometimes? Are intact teeth more vital for quizzes than other activities? So many questions.

Life with Kemar Roach

So which is it to be, Kemar?

What's your philosophy?
And you thought Shaun Pollock had cornered the market when it came to trite positivity.

What are the sales of self-help books like in South Africa? Either they are very, very high or they are very, very low because the contents are no different from everyday conversation.

Jet-lag Watch
Somewhere in the world, there is always a cricketer complaining about jetlag.

No Nando's? Isn't some cricketer somewhere meant to be tweeting about Nando's?

Well Alex Bowden. At least people like Shaun Pollock, Alviro Petersen etc are trying to build something positive in peoples lives as opposed to your negative constant criticism of so called trite sayings. So who's contributing to our lives? Not you hey.
