In our latest Around The Grounds feature of everything cricket-related on Twitter, we profile clubs getting on with winter training, reaction to some great cricket and preparations for the 2014 season.

Although the summer may feel a long way away, several clubs and players are getting back into the routine of training hard so they are completely ready for whatever 2014 brings.

2014 has already produced some brilliant cricket on the international stage and Sunday was a particularly busy day, with no fewer than nine international fixtures.

Ireland Women pulled off an impressive win over Pakistan while in Napier, New Zealand held on to beat India by 24 runs in their ODI and reactions to these matches are also featured.

It is also the time of the year when fixtures for the coming season are revealed, discussed and anticipated while some clubs are looking to fill gaps in their calendar and even find players to fill gaps in their teams.

Clubs are also still busy holding meetings, coming together to do non-cricket things and some of those are also viewable below.
