#LastWeekXI: THAT Lalor catch, with some KP and Amla on the side

Welcome to #LastWeekXI – A week of tweets, vines, videos and cricket banter… straight to you.


1. The week began when Ian Bell smashed 187 off just 145 balls. It’s like cricket as an art form.

2. Then the ODI series’ began.

Needless to say, England lost.

3. …As a conciliation however, Pat Cummins did this.

4. In other news, World Cup squads are out.

5. But business as usual.. Hashim Amla pipped Virat Kohli to become the quickest to reach 5000 ODI runs, whilst compiling 66 for South Africa against the West Indies. 

6. In that same tour’, Chris Gayle proved he can still bat, which is nice considering there is a World Cup around the corner. 

He hit the fasted fifty ever, in just 17 balls. He then smashed 90 off 41 balls in the second T20.

7. Kieron  Pollard had a bit of a twitter rant.

8. Moving on to another hard hitting batsman… Kevin Pietersen had an interesting week. He was grilled by former Australia captain, and great batsman, Ricky Ponting.

9. Then he got a tattoo, and twitter reacted..

10.  …Then he decided it was best to just carry on scoring runs, hitting 67 for the stars, to eliminate the Thunder..

A BIG 11.

In that same game that Pietersen scored 67, there was a bit of controversy.

Josh Lalor took a catch, but went over the rope. He threw it up, re-caught it, and it was out… we thought.

You decide:

It turns out that Cam White and Glenn Maxwell were not too pleased.
