This shot was taken at a T20 cricket game at my local cricket ground, in normal games the cricket kit is all white and the ball is red but in a T20 game ( limited to 20 overs for each team) they wear coloured kits and use a white ball. The T20 games are more exciting as the teams thrash out more to get as many runs as possible in the 20 overs.

 

This shot is of a fielder who is stopping the ball, unfortunately the cricket ball hit him in the family jewels and knocked him off his feet (ooowwwch) if you look carefully you can see the ball !! Spot the ball has nothing on this lol.

Oh. My. Word.

 

Great shot Chimpy. A guy could make a killing with a crushed ice concession stand at these matches.
