Hello all, With it being a Bank holiday here in the UK there was a second bite at the cherry for me to cover the cricket. However, the wind was blowing about 50mph so holding the lens steady was a big challenge:lol:. Here's a selection of the play. Kind regards Graham.

ps the strange OOF effect is the nets surrounding the pitch to protect the local houses!!

Ibet #7 didn't get out with that missed shot!

Half the batsmen have their eyes closed lol

I like #3 - #6 is good but would have been better at a different angle I think.

I like the capture of the bails in mid flight...

Hi Pete thanks for the look in:-), your right about#7 he wasn't given out even with a huge shout from the fielders!. I think the photo shows the ball was always going to climb over the wicket so good call from the umpire:-). I got a sequence of shots from the stumping in #6 but the clearer shots of the wicket keeper didn't have the stumps off and in mid air so looked less dramatic. Kind regards Graham.
