This, that and the other. Mostly the other
The cry for help
Kevin Pietersen is looking forward to the many Ashes series that are coming up.
Come on, Kev. It isn't that bad. There's no reason to attempt suicide.
Ramnaresh Sarwan was watching England Women v India Women.
"Sarah Taylor, can u teach me how to bat please!"
Nottinghamshire's Riki Wessels had to deal with disaster.
Serves you right. Biscuits have no place near tea. They are a dry food and they should be kept that way. Drink responsibly.
MS Dhoni thinks Yuvraj Singh is a limited footballer.
However, Yuvraj was equally critical of Dhoni's approach to the game.
To be honest, they both sound like prima donnas. The team would be nothing without Sachin Tendulkar's harrying in midfield and the big number nine, Ishant Sharma, holding the ball up.
The Wimbledon outsider
Steven Finn claims he has a few tennis skills.
The match report
Nathan Bracken missed Australia's loss to England in the second one-day international.
"Can someone please tell me what happened last night AUSvENG"
It sounds like his followers had strong feelings about it.
The water boy
Stuart Meaker gave a good account of himself during that match.
Two of the beneficiaries were pretty emotional after the win. Stuart Broad was pulling out all the stops.
And so was Jimmy Anderson.
"@StuartBroad8 I've gone Die Hard and a Krispy Kreme! Watch out!"
The film title
Derbyshire's Tony Palladino got a bit confused at the cinema.
No, Tony - Spiderman. It was Jimmy Anderson who was watching Die Hard.
The opening hours
Marcus North was unaware of the UK's Sunday trading laws.
"Just turned up to a 24hr ASDA and they are closed? #shambles"
Ed Cowan's shopping experience was equally unsuccessful.
They only stock the essentials, Ed.
Ravi Bopara sustained an inexplicable minor injury.
This does beg the question why there was a scalpel in his kit bag.
What's your philosophy?
Manoj Tiwary this week.
Of course they do. They wouldn't be able to call themselves quitters otherwise. They'd be a disgrace to the quitter name were they to persevere in the face of adversity.
Getting to know God
Sachin Tendulkar: last sighted on 17th June 2012. Have we lost him? Has he got a collar and a name tag? Maybe we should print 'Have you seen this man?' signs and paste them around the neighbourhood along with a phone number. Someone might get in touch. We just want to know that he's okay really.
