Like your POV to catch the cricket field to the full extent. The framing with the wall is good. Kalimpong is so lush green, but this ground does not have even have a blade of grass. What are two slips doing over there on a dust bowl like this, they will be waiting on their haunches all day long, but none will come their way :-) Good one, thanks for sharing.

awesome, thats what I want to say about that.
In Canada its Hockey, India it cricket, Cuba its baseball, Spain/Brazil it football.
love these types of scenes.
I really like the pulled back point of view, we get to see the large open spaces between the players.
the colored boards are great too.
I have to admit, I don't understand the rules of cricket at all!

Cricket is Indian national sport, if I am right. You have captured this cricket field from excellent viewpoint. I know only green cricket fields, this sandy is something new for me.

Grabbing moments is one of the best bits about photography and this is one prime example. The players' stark contrast in the setting pull the eye to the bewildering game and this certainly is a fantastic strong subject that you have really captured very well. Spot on compo, exposure, clarity and subtle colours.

I really like your vantage point over the cricket field - it is nice and high allowing for the game to take up a good amount of the picture. The other details of the architecture and surrounding landscape are very nicely presented as well. Finally the yellow / blue colour palette really makes your image stand out.
