Funny Cricket Tweets October 2019: week 1

Funny Cricket Tweets October 2019: week 1. 15 funny cricket tweets from the first week of October 2019

India vs South provided plenty of entertainment, Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad again failed to inspire, and Twitter was simply being Twitter. You’re bound to have a laugh.

October 2019 has seen some great tweets to have a laugh at. Below are 15 of the finest I have come across in the past week!

1. Really mature…

Funny Cricket Tweets October 2019: week 1 – How mature.

This can go one of three ways:

  1. If you are a man-child like myself and @benjonescricket, you’re bound to have a chuckle.
  2. You could think it’s time we grow up (not going to happen).
  3. Or you could completely miss the joke, which is even funnier.


2. The best account on Twitter right now?

Here is a battle between arguably the best vs worst Twitter accounts right now.

@icelandcricket, with 18.9k followers, has been rightly having a dig at the BCCI for their Twitter activity. And it has been glorious.

The “brilliant delivery” wasn’t from Ishant Sharma (well, we couldn’t even see it). Rather, it was from the brilliant Iceland Cricket admin. Give that person a raise.

3. A possible explanation…

@DrRehanMirza is onto why we have all missed the “brilliant delivery” in BCCI’s tweet. Too quick for Bavuma. Too quick for us all. What did Ishant possibly have for breakfast?

4. Drop the Pant

This is gold. A pun for the ages from @im_AniketP. Virat Kohli, in the lead up to the first South Africa Test, had yet another promotion to share with us all.

So, he had to drop Pant to show us. Brilliant.

5. “Thank goodness for the crop feature”

That cover picture of Faf du Plessis would reel in the likes. Cool pose, pecs showing and bicep on point. The caption could read “waiting for the next delivery in my really long innings.”

As the real picture shows, it wasn’t quite to be. Brilliant from @imnsamyy.

6. “Congratulations”…

Harbhajan Singh, India’s former off-spinner, has had it in for R Ashwin over the years. He has often taken the opportunity to fire a shot or two, such as stating Ashwin is no longer the go-to man or how he wants Ashwin to make way in India’s Test team.

So, when he congratulated Ashwin on becoming the equal-fastest to 350 Test wickets, Twitterati was not going to miss out on this opportunity to pounce. Like a big, booming off-break through bat and pad, @shonalit7 delivered the goods.

7. A courtesy call

Cheteshwar Pujara and the rest of the India team were as inactive as the BCCI Twitter account when Mayank Agarwal and Rohit Sharma plundered the Proteas attack on the opening day of the Vizag Test.

There was plenty of time for Pujara to make a call to KL Rahul. Rahul certainly has plenty of talent, but this was funny and creative from @cric_sailor.

8. “Rohit is worthy…”

If you missed it, Rohit Sharma said a word sounding similar to ‘Ben Stokes’, but not quite as clean to Cheteshwar Pujara as he avoided a single. Pujara then went from 8 off 61 balls to 81 off 147. More here.

This is a word Virat Kohli often uses. So, he was thrilled. Great caption, @sasta_admi.

9. Did you walk?

Back to my maturity.

If I see things like this everyday for the rest of my life, I’d be thrilled. It’ll never get old. For any name that sounds like cricket terminology (nicked off), you just have to take advantage by sliding into the DMs. @crickshouts with more gold.

10. “Thanks boys…”

Pakistan’s selections in their T20I series loss to Sri Lanka were poor. But, skipper Sarfaraz Ahmed wasn’t bothered, with attention shifting away from his questionable captaincy to Misbah-ul-Haq and Waqar Younis for picking Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad.

For that, he is forever grateful. Funny stuff, @Mishi827.

11. Even the greatest can end with a duck

Nearly spat out my water at this one.

Sir Donald Bradman and Umar Akmal are similar after all. Bradman did average similar to Umar Akmal’s shirt number, but the main similarity is that they both finished with ducks. Superb, @rafi00786.

12. “I’m surprised”

I don’t mean to bash Umar Akmal and Ahmed Shehzad, but the Twitter content is of high quality.

Misbah-ul-Haq was full of hope in selecting two inconsistent performers. They didn’t repay the faith. Great use of a famous meme from @smnrz110.

13. Selfless teammate

How nice. Umar Akmal inspected the pitch quickly to then tell his teammates who it was behaving.

The use of Sir Umar Akmal is just too good from @moeensaqi1047.

14. Cheeky Misbah

The last Akmal/Shehzad related tweet, I promise.

Misbah-ul-Haq is certainly very cheeky, trying to remind everyone about how he was the man for a crisis. Witty, smart and funny stuff from @royzahid.

15. Come on, Jadeja…

Everyone has been crying out for more Manjrekar-Jadeja interactions after Sanjay Manjrekar called Jadeja a ‘bits and pieces’ cricketer during the World Cup.

Jadeja missed his five-wicket haul in the first Test vs South Africa, with the main downside pointed out beautifully by @CSKian716. Gold as always from a funny fan.

So, there are 15 tweets from the first week of October 2019.
