Help from Cricket fans, please.
I'm writing a story in which a cricket game is going on in the background. As a Yank, knowing nothing about cricket previously, I read as much as I could. But I would appreciate if anyone could tell me if this sounds alright, or better yet, make a suggestion.
The teams walked out onto the pitch to shake hands with their opponents. Then they took their positions. West Brumming was bowling first and their man was getting his eye in as the big blond batsman waited. Finally everything was ready and the bowler sent a beautiful floater at the wicket. A loud crack indicated a shot and the big batsman went running.
