Cricket - The loneliness of the middle order batsman

Fabulous portrait - the sky and the shadow really make for drama. I know head down is not usual but to me he is just mentally preparing himself. Viv

Jason, is it a style or is it a formula? Nice shot, what else have you got? I must say this is a very impressive shot. Cheers, Mal

Wonderful addition to the series. I agree with Viv, he does look as if he's mentally preparing. I suppose I would've been top order as I was always bully-off in hockeyWink Good info' also, Jason. Cat
