Hi there everyone.. I have been away and have had a few dramas that have kept me from participating... but I am back and yesterday saw these 'gals' in the park having a grand old time. The suburban cricket leagues are strong here in Melbourne (Australia) and I was pooting around with my Nikon D2X and 80 - 400mm VR zoomer.



Getting out - clean bowled - the most ignominious way to go.... where the ball hits the stumps and dislodges the bails ..... seen above.

A fine ball and a brilliant (photographic) catch at the same moment!

BigGavin,

Welcome, very nice action shot. Even the flying bails are easily seen in the shot.

Aloha and thanks for sharing.

Cheers guys... I was rapt to get a nice 'action' shot whilst just having a rest and pooting about.

Cricket is the most boring game ever invented... great fun to play, bog ordinary to watch... it makes sense that its the favorite game of statisticians and accountants.

I could have gotten 100 yards closer to the boundary for a sharper shot but as I said, I was just sitting in the carpark and relaxing, waiting to meet someone...

More later. Gavin
