423rd ABG cricket team plays first ever game

LONGSTANTON, United Kingdom – Staff Sgt. Arnold Henry, 423rd Medical Squadron, reacts after a Longstanton Grasshopper hits the ball during the first game played by the team Aug. 19 at Longstanton Bowls Club in Longstanton, United Kingdom. At either end of the pitch, 22 yards apart, are the wickets. These serve as a target for the bowling (aka fielding) side and are defended by the batting side, which seeks to accumulate runs. The pitch is 22 yards in length between the wickets and is 10 feet wide. It is a flat surface and has very short grass that tends to be worn away as the game progresses. The "condition" of the pitch has a significant bearing on the match and team tactics are always determined with the state of the pitch, both current and anticipated, as a deciding factor. The team has practiced against themselves the last couple of months to prepare for the game. (U.S. Air Force photo by Master Sgt. John Barton)
