Actions speak louder than words, but Sulieman Benn has used words to describe an action. Not sure where that leaves us.

Like many others, Benn's team-mate Chris Gayle was also impressed by AB de Villiers' fastest hundred in one-day international. He paid the South African what is presumably an even bigger compliment than donning a hat in order to remove it.

Unusually, Instagram doesn't provide us with evidence, but that was almost certainly done with a bit of a twinkle in the eye.

But what about another famously modest West Indian? This self-regard seems rather more heartfelt.

Amazed and saddened by his own omission.

But, of course, there's another West Indian speedster who's fond of talking himself up. On this occasion, he's most impressed with his own belongings.

Little point throwing him to the wolves though for this kind of thing though.

In the end, we just have to accept that Twitter provides a means for cricketers to express who they are. For some of them, that requires countless tweets, as they construct a minute-by-minute mosaic of their character and motivations.

Then again, Twitter's all about brevity and you've got to respect a man who can boil everything down to an eight-word synopsis.

Shane Warne's probably in the other camp. He likes to share. However, it's important to him that he's the one doing the sharing.

Yes, if anyone's going to bore the crap out of people with news of Shane Warne's personal life, it'll be Shane Keith Warne.

Middlesex's Ollie Rayner, however, finds something rather different to be "boring".

It's interesting to note that not many Al Qaeda follow him - but he thinks that some do.

As a cricketer, he should perhaps stick to taking the positives. For example, Dimuth Karunaratne's got an uplifting message for you.

While England are even taking the positives out of jetlag.

It was certainly a memorable innings. Rather reminds one of an older AB de Villiers.
