Excellent bowling helps the underdogs win a cricket match

Night cricket photography has it’s own charm. The white ball getting thrashed across the field brings both excitement for the two teams as well as for the photographer who tries to catch those unique moments of delivery and the strike that etch in the memory.

Hope you enjoy the battle on the field.

Enthusiasm was palpable as both teams dressed in their cricket gears flaunting their bats and precise bowling techniques.

Although there was a chance of a light shower, thankfully as the night progressed, the rain gods kept itself at bay.

I have used all my acquired camera tricks to capture few moments, I could never dream of catching.

Hope I will not disappoint you. Let’s jump in…
