T20 In Tweets – and Sachin Retires







One the day that Sachin annouced his retirement, India and Australia did battle in a T20. Here’s what Twitter had to say on these two earth shattering events.


@warwicktodd_not: In Rajkot the Aussies have lost the toss and elected to bat

@TheCricketGeek: MS Dhoni has won the toss and elected to be the most upset about Sachin’s retirement.

@UScricketguy: CRICKETBALL GOD HANGS UP CLEATS! Sachin “The Lil Maestro” TenDunker with permenant Cricketball cessation play! @sachin_rt #PraiseHim

@AltCricket STATGASM!  Of the 2,000+ ODI cricketers, 99.4% of them have not even scored HALF as many runs as Sachin Tendulkar.

@ TheCricketGeek: Maddinson’s first scoring shot in international cricket is a bullet straight drive for 4. I love him already

@AltCricket: If Nic Maddinson scores the world’s fastest hundred today, did it really ever happen? #INDvAUS

@AltCricket: Shastri, if India win: “They clearly had Sachin in their minds.”
Shastri, if India lose: “They were clearly suffering from Sachin’s news.”

@pavilionopinion: Good of Australia not to pick their best bowler. Unless it’s a new stipulation for all teams in India till the end of the year…

@TheCricketGeek: BREAKING: Watson in plumb LBW shock

@MalhotraSaurabh: Ashwin and Ishant can be excused for this rubbish bowling and fielding. They just featured in the all important CLT20.

@AltCricket: Shane Watson given out to a horrific LBW call, but he’s Shane Watson, so on balance, he probably deserved it. #INDvAUS

@AltCricket: Ravi Ashwin 2-0-41-0  “He heard the news about Sachin midway through his first delivery,” says Ganguly. #INDvAUS

@TheCricketGeek: That noise you can hear is Harbhajan pissing himself laughing at those two Ashwin overs

@ajarrodkimber: Had the weirdest dream that I woke up in San Francisco and Sachin retired.

@pavilionopinion: Clean catch from Ishant. No part of his mullet was touching the rope. #IndvAus

@ TheCricketGeek: Broken finger and a wicket for Vinay

@ZaltzCricket: SACHIN RETIREMENT LATEST: India to retire the Test number 4 position in honour of the departing SRT. BCCI Source: “We’ll just bat with 10.”

@tickerscricket: “They need a lot of fours and sixes.” *Raina holes out next ball* “Wasn’t all that clever, needed to look for ones and twos.”

@AltCricket: Yuvraj’s sixes are the anaesthetic that dull the pain of Sachin’s retirement.

@AltCricket: Look into Yuvraj’s eyes and you see a tiger locking in its prey.

@LOLendraSingh: MS Dhoni is probably saving himself for last two balls. #IndvsAus

@_fakeiplplayer: Mitch Johnson is writing a ‘Thank you’ note to George Bailey for not picking him today. #IndvAus

@_fakeiplplayer: “@Jack_krishhcv: what if sachin injured in 1st test vs WI and misses next match? Then sachin go 4 SA for his 200?” #importantkoschen
