The Luv for Cricket

Description: In India, every Sunday morning is dedicated to cricket. I would wake up and look forward for a nice sunny morning session on the neighbouring roads. Its been ages since then, However in India every child still looks forward for his daily sessions of cricket. Thats how much we adore this Game!!!

    First let me say that I rate this picture as 5 star.
    The photographer has captured the essence of cricket where in the bowler and batsman are playing and fielders are watching everywhere except watching the batsman and ball.
    The photographer has also done excellent job of a capturing the picture with multiple cricketing perspectives.

    The bowler in me is critical of the bowler’s follow through and justifies that batsman’s fine stroke.

    The batsman in me wants to congratulate the photographer on his ability to make a crossbat shot look so straight batted.

    The commentator/pitch reporter in me wants to explain how this pitch is not fit for cricket and that even a fast ball will start spinning if it falls on the right pebble.

    The wicket keeper in me wants nothing more that hitting those wickets with something….anything.

    The whole scene reminds of a a fine cricketer- Davis.

    The only shortcoming of this picture is it fails to capture the kind of ball used- leather, tennis etc.
    Overall this is fantastic picture and fit to be on cover of books like “cricket- a way of life”, “Art of cricket”, “Art of living through cricket”, “making of tendulkar”, “Indiana jones and the cricket stumps” etc.
    Good luck and hope this picture wins.

    PS: information about the game as in how many runs scored on this ball and match etc would be nice.

  23. Akhil says:

    Wickets made of iron… multiple teams playing on the same ground (clear from fielders looking in different directions).. this is a typical scene in most small-town gallis of India. Very well captured in lens.

  24. Sunny says:

    It has perfectly captured every ones involvement …. I can imagine the expressions on the face of the batsman….!!! well done….

  25. prerana says:

    lovely pic.. details to the core be it the. Once can just image the enthusiasm of all involved. !!! awesome

  26. mrinal says:

  28. Muskan says:

    The picture tells me about: The spirit of cricket in India and every young Indian aspiring to become a great cricketer one day.
