Summer is just about here, so out comes the bat and ball.

Love this picture of the oval...overs, innings, wickets, stumpsand all . You may have to provide a brief explanation of the game tothe rest of theState siders (I am generally familiar with the game myself). Where were you perched when you snapped this image? Jay

Great picture, captures the essence of the game. Two teams in full regalia portly(?) umpires overseeing in the interest of fair play and not a spectator to be seen! No one at silly-midon either!

Nice Phil. Nothing like the sound of leather on willow.

Bring on the Ashes!

I know a little less about Cricket as I do about Curling (at least my other half explained curling to me once when we were on a long road trip). But your photo makes me wish I knew so much more - love it.

Another game, on another ground, on the same day. This one is a bit closer to the action.
