After a short-lived experiment with juice…

… KP's back on the coffee.

KP has been a godsend for this column in recent months. We aren't sure what we're going to do when he goes back to cricket and stops trying to make out he's a fun-loving, hard-drinking party animal on Twitter.

Or when he stops using hair gel as moisturiser.

We're also worried about a loss of material when Jimmy Neesham heads home and ceases to explore British culture.

Sometimes they even work together, like the other day when they solved golf.

Without them, what are we left with? Shane Warne's texting thumbs are still struggling to come to terms with the next wave of technology.

Rangana Herath's extraordinary fitness is what allows him to keep things moving along.

You will never know. Herath would never lower himself to a 2k time trial.

Somewhere in the world there is always a cricketer complaining about air travel. Even if it's a part-time cricketer.

Umar Akmal's Twitter account is essentially a prolonged paean to Umar Akmal. He is king of the selfie. To give you some idea, this is the kind of thing you can expect from him pretty much daily.

However, he's jumped the gun in attempting to become the latest to deliver an in-flight selfie for us.

You're not fooling anyone, Umar. That's an airport, not a plane.

Much the same mistake was made by Shoaib Malik.

No point trying to distract us with that aeroplane emoji, Shoaib. That's clearly a bus.

However, for all those who say Umar never learns from his mistakes, think again.

Great fun. Sitting in chair pointing a phone at oneself is pretty much the most fun a man can have.
