Cricket v Motor Racing

Whilst driving through Essex I was lucky enough to capture this interesting image at Hatfield Heath.

The village cricket pitch is unusual in that it has a public highway running through it!

Having stopped to admire the spectacle of this unconventional confrontation of man vs. machine, I was presented with this scene of a rather racy vehicle dodging the cricket balls.

I’m not sure if the onus is on motorists to time their dash across the pitch appropriately. or on the batsmen to pitch the ball skyward to avoid any broken glass or dented bodywork.
