If tweets were runs, you surely could.

If only the authorities recognised it as an official form of cricket.

And others of its kind.

Brutal modesty.

We won't volunteer in the hunt for this bowler.

John Maynard Keynes would have approved. In the long run, we shall score the runs.

When faced with a uphill task, who better than moms and grand-moms to the rescue?

Or that favourite kid cousin of yours.

I could score a 1009 if Obi-wan Kenobi were my coach #1009tales

Collusion or utter incompetence?

I could score a 1009 if Sander Helberg were bowling. #1009tales
- Jasper Helberg

Reality check.

P.S. A lot of those cricket lovers who are also avid video/computer gamers could not be accommodated. For others who want to get featured, tweet or post on Facebook using the #1009tales.
