LATEST STORIES & CRICKET BLOGS

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog

Another week, another set of brilliant cricket tweets.

As you may know, I love the game of cricket, and am passionate about writing about the game. But, showcasing some of the awesome tweets that make me laugh is arguably the articles I enjoy writing the most.

In a week where England won the series, Alastair Cook announced his retirement and Piers Morgan showing how big a fool he is once again, here are 12 of my favourite tweets from the days gone by.

Funny Cricket Tweet #1: Of course that was a legal delivery…

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog Cricket Opinion
Ben Stokes picked up the wicket of Ajinkya Rahane in the first innings at Southampton in very controversial circumstances.

Was it or was it not a legal delivery? @imsanjivraman, it’s a shame you are a Liverpool fan, but that will not stop me from claiming this is arguably the best thing on Twitter. Removes all reasonable doubt about whether it was a no ball…

Brilliant stuff.

Funny Cricket Tweet #2: Moeen Ali is too boring!

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog Cricket Opinion
In my 4th Test Player Ratings, I joked that Ashwin said “if you compare the number of carrom balls, I outbowled Moeen easily.”

@JosePuliampatta took this to another level and tweeted something so believable you’d believe Ashwin said it. Who cares about hitting the same spot? How boring…

I had a good laugh, despite my frustration with Ashwin’s bowling.

Funny Cricket Tweet #3: “Not me”

If you are not following @cricloverakku, I recommend you do.

He gets a regular mention in these articles, and here is another tweet that made me chuckle! The “not me” attitude of these three players has backfired, with all three technically be removed from the Test squad…

Funny Cricket Tweet #4: Ben Stokes just can’t hold back…

Woke up to this on Monday morning Sydney time, and I just couldn’t stop laughing.

The caption from @chaitanyaanandd, simple yet so brilliant, played a big factor. In celebrating success, Adil Rashid copped one in the face, which was his highlight of the match. 

Catch the tweet here.

Funny Cricket Tweet #5: “I salute you, bro”

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
Oh boy, this tweet deservedly blew up!

Both played scored ducks off seven deliveries, and @_amiteshSingh_ delivered a beauty. Both players achieved the same, both players marked the occasion by swapping shirts. 

#RESPECT

Funny Cricket Tweet #6: “Come on, man. Enough. Follow me on insta”

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
These “fake news” accounts are absolute gold.

@cric_duzz “spreads fake cricketing news”, which is fake news I really care about and enjoy. Donald Trump would even like this version of fake news.

From “minnows” like Eranga, Gamage, to “touching the swinging ball” to “follow me on insta and like my pics”, it’s just all gold. Cudos to you, tweeter. 


Funny Cricket Tweet #7: Anything to be proven right!

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
@imsgshinde is another fan who continually comes up with the goods, and here is another.

In the lead up to the Test, there was so much talk about Michael Holding’s views on Hardik Pandya as a cricketer and Jasprit Bumrah as a new ball bowler.

Perhaps the best way to be proven right is just get in that England team and stop them from performing. Running out all his partners was just gold!

Funny Cricket Tweet #8: Choice of words around certain people!

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
Following on from the previous funny tweet, here is another Holding beauty.

Mike Atherton put himself under risk of verbal abuse claiming such a thing. Brilliant stuff, @ImAbhay3.

Funny Cricket Tweet #9: Gold…

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
Sam Curran… what a series he’s had. Ravichandran Ashwin…. what a tough Test he had. 

Virat Kohli bowled Ashwin with the second new ball, and @cricloverakku combined Sam Curran’s quality with Kohli’s reluctance to bowl Bumrah.

Ripper tweet!

Funny Cricket Tweet #10: A new opportunity…

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
Alastair Cook deserves respect and Piers Morgan still wants to drive his KP agenda.

Saw this on my lunch break today at work and did my absolute best to laugh without disturbing anyone else.

I’m still laughing now.

This is not only so true, but perfectly articulated by @Mattwinton1. Absolutely hilarious.

Funny Cricket Tweet #11: “I’d rather watch Cook read a book”

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
Look at Piers carrying on.

@cday73 put him in his place. Brilliant stuff.

Just imagining sitting and just watching Cook read a book while Piers hopes people watch him on TV… Chuckle!

Funny Cricket Tweet #12: The best GIF ever!

Funny Cricket Tweets 2018 edition six Cricket Blog CricBlog
His Test bowling average is seven, after all…

@cwjreynolds calling it as it is… We want to see Cooky bowl! We want to see that run up… that focused face…

Beauty!
