Some really nice action shots here. Like seeing something different from what we get dispatched to shoot all the time here in the states, too. Looks like he is pursing his lips soooooo hard that they are turning white.....

I don't really know the rules for Cricket, but does the pitcher /team get points for knocking off the dowels?

Yep, many of them wear zinc cream to prevent sunburned lips when they're in the sun all all day for the duration of a game. Or when playing two innings, several days in a row.

The batsman is loses his wicket and he's 'out'. His innings over with the 'wicket/out' attributed to the bowler. They're called bails, btw and sit in small grooves on top of the stumps.


It's traditional before the break for lunch for the umpire to either knock the bails to the ground or sit them on top like this below, which was shot during lunch in the above game.

Jay....nice and crisp shots. I see some are wearing types of pads. Is this based on choice by the player or the position.

The batsmen and the wicket keeper (wearing the orange gloves) always use the leg pads. The batsmen also have a crutch protector box under their trousers and often also wear thigh and forearm pads pad on the side facing the bowler. (left side for a right handed batsman - you can see a thigh pad under the trousers in the shot below)
The bowlers and fieldsmen (11 team members on the field and two batsmen from the opposing team, similar to baseball but with an extra batsman) don't wear protection.

Most often the batsmen will wear helmets when a fast bowler is bowling, (as opposed to slow, spin bowlers) like in the shot below from the same game and often the keeper will also wear one for protection. The ball is rock hard and with fast bowlers, travels at a similar speed to baseball pitching.

Hi Jay Be

These would be some of the clearest cricket shots I've ever seen. Big-time kudos to you. I really like numbers 1 and 5 in particular.

Thanks for sharing Jay Be.

I had a look at your site and love your triathlon/event shots. Plenty of emotion.

Jay,
Like many Americans, I've never participated in a cricket match- nor even seen one. So I know almost nothing about the sport except its similarities to baseball.
That said- these are excellent shots that even a non-enthusiast like me can appreciate.
Either you used a really long lens or you were on the field of play. In either case- excellent timing and camera work- and super processing.
