This was taken during the summer between my finishing university and starting work. It was probably shot on a Chinon CM4 35mm camera with a Steinheil zoom lens at the long (140mm) end, which just about works with this composition from the short boundary. The match is between Grappenhall Cricket Club and a Cheshire XI. I don't recall whether or not the batsman was given out or not, but looks likely to me.

The original scan is shown below, so just some dust removal and a tweak to the contrast.
