John Pryor highlights and discusses a range of the most entertaining and controversial tweets of the week by cricketers and cricket pundits.
Twitter was a place of both celebration and sorrow this week...
Since coming back from his international exile following his falling-out with the WICB, he has torn the New Zealand bowlers to shreds in all four matches played so far on their tour of Florida and the Caribbean. His comeback began with a 51-ball 53 in England last month, but really ignited with back-to-back half centuries against the hapless Kiwis at Lauderdale last weekend, before reaching a climax with his 20th ODI century in the second ODI on Saturday.
England Women ensured that their closely-fought series against India Women will need the final match at Wormsley on Wednesday to pick a winner after they held their nerve to win a low-scoring affair at Truro's Boscawen Park.
England Women kept their series hopes alive by beating India Women by three wickets in the third One-Day International in Taunton.
They reduced India's series lead to 2-1 by chasing down a target of 174 with 16 balls to spare with the top order doing the bulk of the work.
India Women followed up success in the opening One-Day International against England Women at Lord's with a 14-run success in the second match in Taunton.
Batting first, they were dismissed for 129 as Katherine Brunt took four for 20 but they hit back to bowl England out for 115 in reply as Jhulan Goswami also took four wickets.
The arrival of Australia for this five-match One-Day International series has elicited plenty of talking points already such as the scheduling of the series itself and what, if any pointers, it can give us for next year's Ashes contest, writes John Pennington.
I don't feel it will tell us an awful lot about a Test series 12 months down the line. I doubt the winning captain will be talking about how this series was the launchpad for Ashes success when interviewed at The Oval next August.
Mithali Raj played a captain's innings to lead India Women to an impressive five-wicket win over England Women in the opening One-Day International at Lord's.
Raj was unbeaten on 94 as India reached a target of 230 with three balls remaining in a tight finish after England had earlier been bowled out for 229.
England Women crushed India Women by eight wickets with a dominant performance in the second Twenty20 International in Chelmsford.
They raced to a 2-0 series clean sweep by hitting 117 for two in 17.1 overs after bowling India out for 114 in their 20 overs, following up their 33-run win in the opening game.
After months of preparation the Teddingington Solar 2012 Cornish Cricket Festival will soon be under way welcoming some of the country's finest sporting talent to Cornwall.
Being staged by the Cornish Sporting Club the event's two major professional matches will take place on July 5 and 8.
England Women opened their international season with a convincing 33-run win over India Women in the opening Twenty20 International in Canterbury.
Sarah Taylor and Laura Marsh shared a 104-run partnership for England's second wicket and their eventual score of 137 for five was beyond India, who closed on 104 for eight.
England captain Charlotte Edwards and her Indian counterpart Mithali Raj got their hands on the ICC Women's World Twenty20 trophy ahead of their T20 match at Canterbury.
Both players would love to lift the trophy for good later this year and Edwards has already held it, after England won the inaugural tournament on home soil in 2009.
England Women comprehensively beat Ireland Women by 51 runs in a Twenty20 International in Loughborough as they began preparations for their summer.
Captain Charlotte Edwards led by example in scoring 72 not out in 51 balls as England posted 136 for four before Ireland could reach only 85 for five in reply.
England Women return to action following a successful pair of winter tours to New Zealand and South Africa when they play India in five One-Day Internationals and two Twenty20 Internationals.
They warm up with matches against Ireland and the England Academy this weekend although they will be without the services of Anya Shrubsole though injury.
Ireland have been able to pick a squad of 13 women from an almost full-strength pool of players ahead of matches against England and India.
Ireland will take on world champions England, challengers India as well as the England Academy over three days at Lougborough from 22nd to 24th June.
England Women have recalled World Cup winners Katherine Brunt and Holly Colvin to a 15-member squad which will take on India Women for two Twenty20 Internationals and five One-Day Internationals in June and July.
Brunt was rested for the recent tours of South Africa and New Zealand while Colvin was unavailable due to university commitments.
