Birmingham BEars v Warwickshire league xi

Following the Tommy Hilditch Trophy match between Ambleside and Fillongley, I was asked by the Warwickshire Cricket League to photograph their representative side's game against the Birmingham Bears in a T20 game. The Birmingham Bears are the T20 equivalent of the Warwickshire County Cricket team, so having only ever photographing two cricket matches, I was really pleased to have this opportunity so quickly.


The match took place at the Coventry and North Warwickshire Sports Centre - it was my first time photographing there. I didn't even know it existed until I was asked to photograph the event! For anyone else who doesn't know, it's tucked away on Binley Road in Coventry. It's a great venue; a hub for a variety of sports, including netball, squash, tennis, racquetball, and cricket. You can find out more about it here.


Before the match, the Bears squad ran coaching sessions for children. It was great to see the players mixing with them and inspiring the next generation.
