This, that and the other. Mostly the other
This week's Twitter round-up features both tea and coffee. Who says that the world's cricketers have little to say on the world's most popular microblogging website?
The one-match ban
Shane Warne is philosophical about his punishment.
Way to take it on the chin while whinging and moaning about it, Warnie.
This was later followed by:
You'd presume this was because of the ban, but considering Warne's taken four wickets at 39.75 and gone for almost eight an over in this year's Big Bash, maybe it was long-term career advice from someone.
One of the great things about Twitter is that you get a real insight into cricketers' lives. Let's take a look at what West Indies' Kraigg Brathwaite has been up to this week. Don't spare any details, Kraigg.

It's unclear why he can't stop himself from publishing these updates though.
The common cause
Indians and Pakistanis have much in common, according to Russel Arnold.
Michael Vaughan has news of extraordinary generosity from the wrong side of the Pennines.
Bring your own cup.
Alex Hales flew from the UK to Australia and a few hours later hit 89 off 52 balls for Melbourne Renegades. Wasn't he tired from his travels?
Always wise to make a compelling case for travelling first class.
The film review
With Kent's Rob Key.
"Moonraker is ridiculous"
Leicestershire's Josh Cobb is behind the times.
It's not 2012 now, Josh. The cricket world's moved on.
And it's not enough to "smash" your food either. You have to be even more destructive. Ask Stuart Broad.
"Mentally preparing for a Sunday Roast obliteration..."
The England team will doubtless be hiring a special food-obliteration psychologist to aid players' preparation for such endeavours.
Does the same approach apply to hot drinks?
The same approach does not apply to hot drinks.
