This, that and the other. Mostly the other
In this week's Twitter round-up, let's first take a look at what England players get up to when they're not taking part in a tour for one reason or another.
Graham Onions has been trying to eat well.
Graeme Swann's also been trying to eat well.
A good bout of tea towel-wafting will doubtless strengthen the wrist, so that's no bad thing.
Nick Compton's also focused on food. One of the great benefits of being a professional sportsman is that you can eat well.
Wait. That's not eating well. That's enduring a miserable, joyless experience and then rewarding yourself with something equally miserable and joyless.
The uncomfortable experience
Stuart Broad has been socialising.
Few things are more attractive than a girl who looks like a bar stool.
I imagine life's tough for county cricketers in the close season as well. How's Rob Key coping?
"Left my iPad at Venice airport. #spewing."
You have everyone's sympathies.
You can see the headline already: "Indian cricketer slams authorities." Seam bowler Ishant Sharma has launched a stunning and controversial attack on the BCCI and other cricket boards regarding the massive workloads modern cricketers are being forced to endure.
I can't believe he said that.
The reading material
Pat Cummins made an interesting selection.
No, it's not sad. It's weird.
The mummy's boy
Tasmania's James Faulkner is treating his mother.
Bet she can't wait.
The bad experience
You feel that Essex's Maurice Chambers isn't giving us the full story.
"Taking a girl out on a date is over rated."
Tino Best has another Tino Best quote for us all. This time it's a warning.
Kemar Roach's modesty corner
Step aside, Tino. You aren't the only West Indian fast bowler with a high opinion of himself.
Who are the others? Is Rory Kleinveldt one? How about James Tredwell? How can we spot them? Will they have the same attitude to the capitalisation of initial letters in words?
What's your philosophy?
Let's steer clear of Shaun Pollock for once, lest he develop some sort of influence in the world - the thought of that is too horrific to contemplate. Let's instead see what Farveez Maharoof has to say.
Wait. He's quoting Pollock? He's a disciple! It might be too late.
Nottinghamshire's Riki Wessels has an odd understanding of the word "already".
