It has been a while since one of these!
The full on cricketing calendar over the last month has delivered some good cricket, but even better tweets.
Below is my selection of 17 tweets that had me laughing, and screenshotting to put in my latest funny tweets article. Enjoy!

1. Off to a great start

Jasprit Bumrah was nailing cover drives and some of the best shots you’ll see, but @mahisush1 was having none of it. Poor Shardul Thakur. Brilliant tweet!

2. “Wait till later to smack him.”

Today marks a week since Pakistan’s famous collapse to lose the Abu Dhabi Test to New Zealand. A highlight was Hasan Ali’s almighty slog that had us believing he needed to hit a six to win the World Cup for Pakistan. Here is @imsgshinde with arguably the best caption/image combination in recent times!

3. Easiest before/after photo ever

Shared the trophy before the series. Shared it after. As an Aussie fan, I’ll take it. If only all before/after photos could be so simple. Funny stuff @akshaypasu!

4. “Crap”

Mitchell Johnson got to Twitter (already risky) to engage in banter aimed at Virat Kohli (even riskier). The result was this. @cricfreakz had me in a good chuckle on the morning train!

5. The tough life chooses you

Marcus Stoinis went for 22 in one over soon after being picked up by perennial IPL underachievers Royal Challengers Bangalore. The RCB life has chosen its unlucky victim. Too good @TheLyrebird1001!

6. Easy way to learn the alphabet

Niroshan Dickwella appeals even when a batsman middles it. Shahid Afridi with his trademark celebration and who could ever forget the “frog in a blender” Paul Adams? @suneerchowdhary with tweeting gold!

7. A great pack to get you started

Another one sure did bite the dust in Abu Dhabi last week. @CrickPotato1 with one of the finest starter packs in recent memory. You can now be your very own Ramiz!

8. “How did I fail that?”

Pat Cummins was the victim of many memes during and in the aftermath of the 2nd ODI of South Africa’s recent tour of Australia. @abdushakoorcric nailed a caption contest, with a caption that hit home as a former (thankfully) university student. Pat clearly failed an easy test!

9. Virat Kohli, watch out.

Penalty runs was the hot topic over the last week or so, with Pakistan docked against India in the Women’s World T20, and so too Sri Lanka against England. @suneerchowdhary with the goods once again!

10. Number three problem solved for England?

Penalty runs was all lined up to bat at three for England, until Jonny Bairstow was called up at the 11th hour. A good chuckle from @pavilionopinion!

11. Easy answer!

@Petrivz delivered another brilliant reply after one on AB de Villiers earlier this year. That 1999 semi final still hurts. But, if it means you continue tweeting fire and make others laugh, by all means.

12 “You can survive”

Brilliant creativity from @SonejiMubin! Azhar Ali nearly got Pakistan home in the first Test last week, but exposed the tail too much. Of course, a couple of the shots were inexplicable, so much so the Mickey Arthur facepalm came out.

13. Just so much fun

Ajaz Patel rolled his arm over looking forward to what came of it by the time it reached the 22-yard mark. Pakistan well and truly did a Pakistan in the first Test, and @Sajjanlaunda put it perfectly.

14. What a transformation!

Khaleel Ahmed upon landing in Australia met the team at the hotel after an appointment at the plastic surgeon. Taking advantage of a broadcaster error in great fashion, @SonejiMubin!

15. That’s really unfair!…

…. on your mother. The Dubai Test has been a challenging watch so far, and @YASH385 put it bluntly. Just make sure she doesn’t see this, otherwise you’ll be grounded!

16. Forking out the big bucks!

Commonwealth Bank reported a record loan taken out at a cricket match. @spartytalkback knows all about the pain of buying food at sporting events!

17. Always eluding his grasp!

Will end the article with a brilliant tweet from @strangerr_18. One of my favourites. Poor Rohit!
