Between all the international cricket scheduled for Wednesday (June 13), there was plenty to talk on social media. But first, here’s something Chris Gayle might need help coping with. Volunteers?
In the meantime, Brendon McCullum was taking up rugby…

Kevin Pietersen is convinced that he’s a better orator than a footballer.
Wow, seems like my speech hit the back of the net unlike my penalty on Sunday night.
I’m so happy it’s been received so well over the world!

And Ian Bell was fronting the media after twin tons in the County Championship.
Fun few days at the office…
Great performance from all the lads.
Thanks for all the kind messages. It’s greatly appreciated.
Looking forward to the next one.#youbears @WarwickshireCCC pic.twitter.com/NBKUCJbHJE

He might be the highest run-scorer in ODIs for England, but he hasn’t had this joy in some time.
Always amazing a special to represent your country. Can't wait for the big series to start tomorrow. IA

And as this was being compiled, another massive milestone was brought up by Amelia Kerr, all of 17.
17-year-old Amelia Kerr has just become the second woman to hit an ODI double-hundred!

Sarah Taylor not only contributed to that achievement with the bat, but also impressed an Australian legend with her glovework.
