The Buzz: Don't forget to celebrate Shahid Afridi Day

All the world's cricketers walked into a bar. The LOLs, the chatter, and the occasional mini-brawls, they were endless. And the news cycle was never the same again!

David Warner's daughter is tomorrow's cricket terror

Remember when David Warner's discovered a little Virat Kohli in his backyard? Well the adorable Ivy Mae just upped the cuteness stakes with her latest snit. While doing a spot of batting - or Kohli-ing - at the park, the tot missed a delivery that would have found the stumps. In a bit of drama worthy of a top-flight cricketer, Ivy shouted "Nice spinning" before flinging her bat down in anger. We can't wait to see her in the Australian team. She's going to be a regular terror. World domination is guaranteed.
