A Heady Mix Of Weather And Celebrations
Over the past week, and particularly the weekend, we received all sorts of messages, from results, achievements to the more humourous side of the game.
Rain, soggy outfields and bad light dominated the majority of cricket-related tweets this weekend - at least in the South.
Elsewhere, there were cups being won, league titles being won and lost and celebrations going on.
Here's our pick of the bunch.
Remember, if you want to feature in the same place next week, get tweeting - @Cricket_World and let us know if your club isn't being followed by us. We'll soon ensure we are.
We start with this picture which leaves little to the imagination from SRK Cricket Club in Surrey:
Upminster planned to get six teams out this weekend:
Sat Fixs: 1XI v Chelmsford (A) 2XI v Orsett (H) 3XI v Ilford (A) 4XI v B Hill 3 (H) 5XI v G Baddow 4 (friendly H) 6XI v Harlow Town 4 (A)— Upminster CC (@upminstercc) August 24, 2013
There was some play at Penkridge CC, although having last week lauded the spirit of cricket as alive and well, it looks like somebody didn't quite get the message:
Feisty scenes as a lbw decision turned down. Bowler indulges in bad tempered exchange and then gets lamped for 14 off 3 balls— Penkridge CC (@PenkridgeCC) August 24, 2013
At Kenton, the action was moved indoors. A wise move, indeed.

On the field, here's Aaron Flaherty getting to his century for Formby Cricket Club. Well played.
And Sam Puddy of Wembdon pictured after hitting 130.
There was some seriously good bowling going on at Glossop. Well bowled, Will, well bowled.
Ruddy marvellous ..... He's only gone & got another. That'll be 4 wickets in 5 balls for Will #star— Glossop Cricket Club (@GlossopCC) August 24, 2013
More brilliant bowling - all 10 in one innings!

The morning after what sounds like quite a night before at Newport:
Promotion secured for Port Sunlight Cricket Club, and a Championship could be around the corner...
1st Team secured Promotion to Division 1 and require 1 more point from the 3 games to be confirmed as champions. Great stuff!!! #pscc— Port Sunlight CC (@PortSunlightCC) August 25, 2013
Time for tea at Nelson. Looks good from here.

But back to winning things. Always nice when you win a Cup, to win a big one.
One Cup good, two Cups better. This is Jono Stephenson of Market Rasen Town CC.

In a similar vein, one final good, two finals at the same venue, even better:
