Wonder what Jimmy Neesham's on about here?

Could it have been a foolish review in the India v England Test?

No, it was, of course, the US election.

But he did have one positive thing to say about the winner.

And now another horror story. Skip past this tweet if you're the sensitive sort.


We use quite a lot of KP's tweets in this column. As of now, we consider this a personal service for Ed Cowan.

So here you go, Ed. Aside from the coffee catastrophe (Cofftastrophee? Catastrocoffee?) KP's been training - although he didn't seem to be fully into it.

Chris Gayle's mind didn't seem fully on the job either.

Providing people with a window into their personal lives is one reason why it's not uncommon for celebrities to attract stalkers. However, it's less common for a celebrity to begin stalking a member of the public.

Have a productive day! That's a demand. He's watching you. He's watching you and the other 12.5 million people who follow him on Twitter.

He'll even watch you in the dark.

Somewhere in the world there is always a cricketer complaining about air travel.

Stuart Broad had a request before James Anderson boarded.

And don't forget to take a selfie.
