The week started with plenty of intriguing Test match action as Zimbabwe continued to top Sri Lanka, and South Africa extended their dominance over England.

Zimbabwe’s day ended with plenty of hope of creating history.

While in England, South Africa’s day started exactly how they would have liked it to.

England’s batting, on the other hand, was summed up in one tweet from Michael Vaughan.

Not too far away, though, a former England batsman was enjoying himself on his return to an iconic venue.

In another part of the world, Shikhar Dhawan got lucky after M Vijay was injured.

R Ashwin was on his way to Mumbai, presumably to join the Indian team ahead of their departure to Sri Lanka.

The man Ashwin succeeded was on a flight too, although he didn’t give us the details of his travel.

Mahela Jayawardene and Mohammad Hafeez were on flights as well, albeit of different kinds.

Elsewhere, Mitchell McClenaghan got nostalgic.

David Warner was out on a date – with his wife, of course.

While far away in southern Tamil Nadu, another Australian received a welcome that would put local heroes to shame.
