Sports photo of the week

March 11, 2009

Here's Sports Pictures editor Greg Bos's view: Photographer Phil Brown captured a superb action moment from the cricket match between England and the West Indies. He's got the ball in the frame, the player with both feet off the ground and a clean dark background to make the image standout.

Cricket, lovely cricket…

July 4, 2008

Glancing up while sitting in the departure lounge of Grantley Adams Airport in Barbados my heart sank - oh crap! – joining me and a few other passengers in the waiting area was the Australian Cricket team.  Nothing personal, all good guys.   Some passengers, who were clearly supporters, reacted with muted excitement.  But it became painfully obvious to me, the team was joining us on our flight leaving shortly for St Vincent. I smiled an evil grin at the ignorant supporters in the lounge for they were unaware of the fact that the team’s presence on our plane meant only one thing and it wasn’t good… but I will come back to that.
