We were fortunate enough to catch the fifth day of a cricket match while in South Africa and even luckier to attend with the brother of our couchsurfing host. He graciously answered all our questions about the sport, it’s rules and the players. We stayed until the last wicket, much to his surprise. During the afternoon tea break a grounds crew assembled on the field to touch up the lines and clear out the space. Spectators were also allowed out on the field so we took the opportunity to get up and see what it was all about. We captured this shot just as they were touching up the lines.
