    for those unfamiliar with cricket, the batsmen, (akin to the batters in baseball) attempt to hit the ball for runs, while the bowler (akin to the pitcherin baseball) attempt to get them out by hitting the three stumps (pieces of wood in the ground akin to the home plate in baseball) or caught or run out if they do not make it home while running (akin to tagging in baseball)

    I think these look like snapshots. Good snapshots, but snapshots nonetheless.

    The point of view is not interesting. I don't really care to see the back side of the batsman, unless I can maybe see the bowler or fielder in action beyond. And pay attention to the composition... For example, cutting off the foot and the stumps in #3 looks bad.

    The images in general are very static shots. Try to take some shots when something is actually happening... like when the batsman is in mid swing, or when the ball is in mid air.

    I also think these photos would be better if one could see his face. By seeing facial expressions and the eyes, much more emotion can be drawn from the photo.
