Hadn't thought about this, but the nature of cricket pictures has changed, hasn't it, giving less context and more concentration on the celebration or aggressive gesture. A great pity. Good job we have our own top photographers on the forum.
I'll stick to birds and other wildlife, though.

Many thanks for posting this.

I've just taken 'An eye for cricket' by John Arlott and Patrick Eagar from my bookshelf. Published in 1979, its wonderful. I'd recommend it to anyone. Essentially a coffee table book of Eagar photos with words by Arlott.

You may enjoy the photos by this professional, a thoughtful photographer with a good eye. (He gave a talk/slide-show to the Cricket Tour Company clients in Adelaide, last tour - probably the best thing that happened on that trip!)

Yes, terrific images, particularly the Headingley skyscape. And the subcontinent ones too.
