Legendary Tasmanian and Australian cricket legend, David Boon, had afling in a twilight twenty over match for local club side the UTAS Lions.

Here is the end, out bowled.

You can't get much more English than cricket, Roy! :-)

Roy, there are things not meant for ordinary people like you and me to understand. Like the meaning of death, the origin of life or the point of cricket.:blah:

Nice shot though, of the – outbowling?

I love the comment about "you can't get more English than cricket."

As a non-English person(American), I have no idea about what you said, but I can sure appreciate an outstanding action shot like this one - incredible timing. Well done!

great timing
the ball, the wickets/stumps and bales
was it one photo or did you do the multi shots thing

was he clean bowled or played on?

nice to see he hasnt lost his touch hehehehehe

my understanding of (real) cricket is
13 guys in white standing in a paddock for 5 days to get a draw
LOL

One shot only, multi shots can tend to give lots of shots around the action, only to miss the decisive moment.

Clean bowled withth enew ball, Boonie openedand had to push th epace as it was a twenty over match.


At 47 Boonie nearly ran out his batting partner. Boonie went for a quick single and made it home while the youngster struggled to match his pace.
