Funny Cricket Tweets: CWC 2019 Week 1

Good cricket, surprises and a very interesting tournament ahead.

That has been the theme of the first week of CWC 2019. However, in the Twitter world, ‘Twitterati’ have tweeted some gems, enabling fans like myself to enjoy laughs as well as the action.

It doesn’t get much better than that.

Below are 15 great tweets I have come across in recent times. Hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Funny Cricket Tweet 1: “Ah, our England-born captain!”

Eoin Morgan is England’s most capped ODI player. Also, he is the hope of a nation, with millions visualising him lifting the World Cup for the first time.

I would have liked to see Her Majesty’s reaction when Eoin Morgan said “Dublin”. Caption game strong from @CrickPotato1.

Funny Cricket Tweet 2: MS, a great intern.

The MS Dhoni situation has created plenty of controversy. The ICC has responded to the BCCI saying that Dhoni is not permitted to wear the Balidaan Badge, in support of Indian soldiers, on his gloves.

However, there has been a light-hearted moment in what has been a tense debate. @MadMart05, responding to a claim that “Dhoni isn’t playing for the BCCI or ICC”, delivered a beauty. So nice of MS Dhoni to undertake an unpaid internship for so long!

Funny Cricket Tweet 3: Michael Clarke is trending…

Michael Clarke started trending on Twitter as soon as his voice was heard on commentary in the Australia vs West Indies game. That can never be good.

But, this from @J_Dizzle05 is very good. Usman Khawaja got hit from a bouncer by Oshane Thomas, and Clarke said the fielders should be respected when they come to check if the batsman is OK. Wasn’t the case in 2013, though!

Funny Cricket Tweet 4: New meaning for “AB”

Another big talking point in the tournament’s opening week was AB de Villiers expressing his desire to return to the South Africa team for the World Cup.

@CSKian716 didn’t miss the opportunity to pounce. Afridi Benjamin de Villiers is genius, given how many times Shahid Afridi came back from retirement. While AB is not on Afridi’s level, this is light-hearted and funny!

Funny Cricket Tweet 5: Take it easy, Ravi!

A typo from the indiancricketteam Instagram account showed that South Africa elected to ‘bar’ first against India (see below).

As we know, Shastri doesn’t mind a beer or two. Get off their account, mate! Brilliant stuff from @ashusarcastic.

Funny Cricket Tweet 6: “Just chilling”

India’s first game against South Africa was a momentous occasion. World Cup 2019 had one of its most high-profile spectators in the first week, with Virat Kohli’s men chilling out watching all the action.

This included South Africa losing two games. Yes, South Africa’s third game was against India who were playing their first. Funny stuff from @HitmanCricket.

Funny Cricket Tweet 7: “Really late”

Another schedule-related tweet. No shame in laughing at these.

@mainbhiengineer predicted the wait would be even longer. India will be competing for the 2019 World Cup in the 2023 edition. Brilliant.

Funny Cricket Tweet 8: Primed to lead CSK

This is a beauty.

@CricCrazyJohns knows what’s next for Faf. He is primed to be MS Dhoni’s successor, leading an ageless CSK side in 2021. If his South African captaincy role is under threat, there is no need to worry. His CSK prospects are in good shape!

Funny Cricket Tweet 9: Enjoying life

Another beauty. Another AB tweet.

South Africa’s horrendous start to their World Cup campaign coupled with AB’s statement last year that he was not interested in returning makes this tweet one of the best you’ll see. It’s quality from @its_tabrez.

Funny Cricket Tweet 10: *That* word

This was meant with discontent from South African fans before their World Cup opener against England. In particular Kass Naidoo.

But, for the neutral, you couldn’t help but chuckle. This was cheeky from @blacksuperbhero, and got a laugh from me!

Funny Cricket Tweet 11: Please Michael…

@Boomrah_ usually comes up with plenty of gems on Twitter. This is another.

In the wake of Michael Vaughan tweeting that it would be an “easy win for England” against Pakistan, Saurabh hoped that he would tweet Australia would win Sunday’s game against his beloved India, given Vaughan’s bad track record at times.

As an Aussie fan, “plz, plz” Michael, don’t do it.

Funny Cricket Tweet 12: Dhawan is still there?

Shikhar Dhawan is a fine ODI player.

But the surprise when he is at the crease for more than two overs when out of form is something to behold. The caption was translated to me as “one minute, one minute, what am I looking at there.”

@RoflGandhi_ making others ROFL.

Funny Cricket Tweet 13: Kane! Don’t you have a game?

Harsha Bhogle was being interviewed for CricBuzz, and Kane Williamson was goofin’ around in the background!

With a game against Afghanistan coming up, Williamson needs to shift focus fast. Funny stuff from @holdthedoor19. The best look-a-like you’ll see!

Funny Cricket Tweet 14: “Waiting…”

West Indies were rightly disappointed with the umpires in their loss to Australia.

Chris Gayle especially so, who was victim of two incorrect decisions by umpire Gaffney, including a shocking LBW decision. He reviewed successfully twice, and then was given out for a third time on umpire’s call. @RoshanKrRai painted the picture nicely! A good laugh.

Funny Cricket Tweet 15: Boycott!

This was just before the World Cup, but a ripper nonetheless.

Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan didn’t travel to Azerbaijan for his team’s Europa League Football Final against Chelsea due to his Armenian heritage. It was rightly frowned upon by many. Some even called for Arsenal to boycott the match (given their performance, they actually did boycott. But that’s a conversation for another time).

@knap_dog came up with an absolute beauty of a response!

So, there are 15 funny tweets from the first week or so of CWC 2019.

Have any yourself or seen any you like? Send them in to be included in next week’s edition! Twitter: @cric_blog.
