My previous attempts at sports photography are the London Marathon, which I'm not sure qualifies, and my kids' school sports days, which I am certain don't! No idea quite what to expect, I plonked myself on the boundary with a long lens on a monopod, surrounded myself with children, and waited for the action.
Essex batted first and made 161 in their 20 overs. Wanstead made a slower start, but some big hitting in the middle overs made relatively short work of the target, and we romped home with several wickets in hand and ten or so balls to spare.
