Twitter round-up November 20, 2014

'Watching Bopara tie a tie is laborious and painful'

Speaking of excruciating, this week's round-up has more Michael Vaughan than you can shake a stick at

There seems to be some disagreement within the West Indies camp as to which direction to look. Kemar Roach's position is as follows.

Very true. However, Nikita Miller argues…

Who's right? Who's wrong?

Ah yes, of course. The bigger picture is that it's wrong to pay too much attention to anything cricketers say on Twitter.

This is rarely more true than when someone is "just saying" something and if there's one thing Michael Vaughan likes doing, it's precisely that. What's Vaughan been just saying recently?

You have to question whether any of that was actually #worthsaying. Vaughan did have another observation to make, though.

For his part, England's own one-day opener has been preparing for the World Cup by eating like a true elite sportsman.

But it's okay because this was part of a balanced diet. It's balanced because on the rare occasions when the food's not junk, the film choice is.

Another of England's one-day side has been focusing on skills more than nutrition. Steven Finn oversaw a Ravi Bopara practice session.

From neckwear to footwear. Could you walk a mile in Sulieman Benn's shoes?

One man who has little time for being on his feet is Chris Gayle.

All class.

Speaking of class, John Hastings has a lot of time for Vernon Philander's modus operandi.

It takes a fast-medium bowler to truly celebrate the art of fast-medium.

In recent times, Kemar Roach has given the impression of being at war with the world. Has he chilled out at all?

Not really.

Lonwabo Tsotsobe has been pondering the nature of God.

Finally, is Nando's in or out this week?

It's not just in - it's positively necessary.
