This is a shot from a local cricket game, I was lucky to get the ball hitting the wickets. For all you guys who don't play cricket the ball is probable moving over 70 mph as it hit the wickets.

Thanks Terry, cricket is played all around the world. 

 

Just to give you a bit more insight to the game, the ball is a solid as a brick, a few players have been killed after being hit in the head by the ball, so now they wear protective helmets, if you are a wimp you can use arm guards and a box lol.

It is common to get broken fingers and thumbs specially when you are fielding as you don't wear gloves or catchers mitts.

Ron that is a wonderfully exposed, stop action photo, awesome!   I gotta say the game is catching on in the USA, but...to me (and I have watched a few matches live and some on the tele) it is more boring than American baseball :(.  I spent a few weeks on holiday in St. Kitts, WI a few years back, was a huge sport there, many matches played on Sunday's by the locals. There is a family from India a few homes down the street that we get together with on occasion and a Cricket match to them is almost like going to Heaven!  Cheers

Cheers Doug, American baseball is what we Brits would call "rounders" totally boring and usually played by kids lol. A cricket match is more than a game, it's an event...... what could be better than watching a game in the summer with a pint and a few butties....pure bliss.

We have a group of supporters called the "barmy army" who follow the English team and we even have fancy dress for the spectators some of the costumes are brilliant. Check out the boys lol.

Hahahaha, that's great, you know a sport is boring when most of the action is at the bar, the restroom or the parking lot!, however...they are dedicated to their sport and Team.  I get it...(football, or as we Americans call it...Soccer), can be painful to watch, low scoring etc. but sooooo physically demanding and the most popular sport in the world (although it very well may be Cricket), I guess it's all a matter of where you originate from.  God bless us all!  I gotta find an Oakland Raiders american football video to post!

 

Yesterday I gave my Crew the afternoon off to watch Mexico and New Zealand play a match, non of my guys could run the 100 meters in under 3 days... but the enthusiasm was fantastic to watch!



American football fans in action, this is what it has come to, lol!

It takes admirable skill to capture an interesting and miniscule point in time in terms of selecting the correct list of camera/software settings that are fundamental to the process... No less than I might expect of you Chimpy...(-:

 

Ball sports...?  Hmm !

Killer photo, Chimpy !

'eez clearly run past it and the bowler saw 'im commin' and done 'im like a kipper ! :) (my version of the Sky commentators).

In the 19th century, when first seeing a cricket match, a Tsarist prince remarked that if introduced into Russia, would go a long way to countering the rise of nihilism among the Kulaks.

Any game that lasts for 5 days and where they stop for lunch and tea is an existential experience B)

As the song says:

" I don't like cricket - oh no, I LOVE IT" !


That is one weird video, Doug !

Aye Chimpy, that's a good catch, and the cricket action looks great to.

  No prizes for guessing where the "barmy army" is at the moment......

........methodically drinking the pubs of New Zealand dry.......town after town after town.

Good luck to the British Lions, they're gonna need it!
