one of those shots you get that while not technically perfect, is just plain good fun. I loved the keepers reaction to the thump of ball on pad, although where the ball had actually got to in this one i have no idea!

Great action shot so well timed, could be 'Aspot the ball competition'.
Personally though I would say Not
Nice one

Doesn't really need a caption.
DOF is great, the gentlemen in the background visible enough to add atmosphere but not too visible to be distracting.
Great mix of emotions.

Great action shot, the keeper's face makes it!
Guess the ball is where the batsman is looking -- or is he just trying to ignore the finger of doom!?

Great action shot. IMHO it's a pity the bowlers face isn't visible but it's still a cracking shot.

Nice one steve. Keeper is very excited so it must be out! Good action, where's the ball though?

Great expressions, you've captured just the right moment. Again, no idea where the ball is! Love all the old boys in the background watching the action, it really gives a good feel to the shot.

I think this is top notch, everything about it - perfect timing though on the capture - one to be proud of!
