Stump Vision is a common theme in Cricket Photography but this one is so simple and unpretentious. Lovely What a ground! In the shadow of the ancient hill fort of Dunnad in Kilmartin Glen.

Two teams of British cricketers took part in the world's highest match ... on the side of Mount Everest. 50 cricket-mad explorers spent nine days trekking through the Himalayas to Everest Base Camp at a plateau of 5,165m.

They played a full match setting a new world record for the highest altitude ever recorded for a field sport ... not that it is an overly contested title.
