All the world's cricketers walked into a bar. The LOLs, the chatter, and the occasional mini-brawls, they were endless. And the news cycle was never the same again! Welcome to ESPNcricinfo's Social Buzz, your go-to destination for all the bantz, the jousts, and little bit of eavesdropping from the social media playground and beyond.
Everyone's had a bit of time off recently, so we can perhaps forgive Jim Troughton, Warwickshire's coach, for forgetting that it's important to keep your eye on the ball at practice... even when you're stood on the boundary being interviewed.

We've also had an update in the Tim Murtagh/Tim Murtaugh story. Unconfirmed, but seems likely that Murtaugh is more into spin than swing...

When there's very little cricket but you see cricket everywhere.

David Warner is going to be so ready when the Test season begins in Australia.
The newest addition to Ajinkya Rahane's trophy case
Might be his best yet he says. We agree.
Give the nice New Zealanders a break, y'all!
Muttiah Muralitharan and Vijay Shankar have all the moves
This week on David Warner's home production of Dancing with the Stars, a throwback to a Sunrisers Hyderabad fans' meet where for a change it's someone else doing the dancing. Ashish Nehra refusing to make eye contact in case Muttiah Muralitharan and Vijay Shankar ask him to caper next is all of us on a Monday.
Missed all the chatter last week? Catch up on it here.
