I'm a bit surprised that the players are so far away from you when you appear to have shot at 500mm. Were you still in your house? If so, any possibility of a good action shot has been lost entirely.

The images you've produced neither capture peak moments of action nor do they tell a story and as a result can only be considered 'snapshots', sorry. Also, your shutter speed was only 1/200th which is way too long for a sports image that should freeze the action.

In future get alongside the boundary ropes, in a low position (seated is easiest at cricket), and use the full length of your zoom. Shoot in aperture priority (wide-open) and use your ISO to make sure your shutter speed is at least 1/800th, preferably a bit higher. Aim to get a clear, crisp image of the batsman, with the full length of his bat in frame, while having the ball in frame at the same time.

If you're shooting the bowler, shoot either from side-on to show him/her in profile (again with the ball in the picture), or shoot from behind the batter (slightly to the side of course) to give a head-on shot of the bowler. If you time it right you can get a shot of the ball halfway down the wicket towards you, while the bowler's face and body-position are still clearly visible. This is also a good place to get the bowler's reaction if the batter is bowled out or trapped LBW. If the batsman tries a hook shot you can also get some great images of face/bat/ball from this position, and also of the batter in action when they change ends.
