Oh dear, things did not work out for this batsman. It is a superb view of a cricket dismissal, a powerful one that has quite literally swept the stumps away. The drawing is completed in charcoal and pastel. The paper is high quality Canson pastel paper in mid grey. I have added the red pastel pad because the source photo showed the cricketer in his international colours.
