On Thursday our son Nathan played a cricket match in Montagu. It was so warm that they allowed the boys to play in their sport shorts !! We won by only 7 runs in the last over of the game Smile Nathan bat at number one which is nerve wrecking to me Smile
Thanx for the kind comments and votes on my Bontebok upload yesterday, taken when we returned from the cricket match.
Have a super Saturday !!

Very well captured sports action shot, Herman, the 1/500 sec. shutter freezing the play so crisply: relief all round when your team won.

Needs the ball, or his face, to be an eye-catching image. Caught the moment well but there's no 'oomph' without one of the key sports-photography-requisites (i.e. a ball or a face, when it's a ball sport).
