This week's pick of cricket-related posts and images on Twitter features fireworks around the world, cricket tours and cricketers raising money for charity by participating in 'Movember'.

There were plenty of celebrations going on around the world with Diwali in India and Guy Fawkes night in the United Kingdom lighting up the skies.

As England begin their tour of Australia and England Women finish their tour of the Caribbean, shortly to also arrive in Australia, tweets from the players also gave us an insight into life as an international cricketer.

As clubs grappled to get to grips with the ECB's new play-cricket website, Australian and Indian bowlers grappled with batsmen hammering sixes, Rohit Sharma's 209 getting plenty of plaudits, as did Mahendra Singh Dhoni's helicopter shot.

Award ceremonies, fund-raising and other events also feature heavily in this week's piece.

Chief among the tweets and photos are cricketers and others beginning to grow facial hair for 'Movember', which raises money to support the fight against prostate cancer.

Our own Pete Steward was off cycling to raise money for Children in Need and contributor Aaron Kumar was playing in a 12-hour tennis match to raise funds for Children of the Mekong.

Well done everybody and good luck.
