Cracking work mate - some great shots there.

1 word though - backgrounds....just wondering whether if you'd moved by an few yards left or right, you would have got the same great shot, but with a cleaner background.

That said, still good shots all round!

Thanks Paul for your comment, the fence is along that part of the ground behind the wicket, could possibly move 180 deg and shoot from the other end, I was here as most batters are right handed.
