The ICC Cricket World Cup is arguably the biggest sporting extravaganza after the FIFA World Cup. The 2015 edition of the CWC runs from 14th February to 29th March. The minnows have already proved that they’re no pushovers and can cause an upset on their day. Here’s a collection of the best tweets of #CWC15 :

England have played so bad that Scotland winning against them will no longer be called an upset.
