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 bouncer at the wicket. A loud crack indicated a shot and the big batsman went running.
Please let me know of any more changes to make.
I like the sound of yorker, but I'm guessing it has its origins in York, and I want to stay as place nonspecific as possible. Thanks for the link, HeartedHoof. I want it to be description of what's going on in the background rather than an actual commentary on the game. I'm also afraid if I use too detail it will be obvious I don't know what I'm talking about.
