Terrific rendition of a not so happy event for England. Great work Paulette, you're a true cricket fan.

Don't like the reminders but it's an excellent piece

This is my depiction of 'the ball of the Century' in the 2017 Ashes. It shows James Vince of England being bowled by a fantastic ball from Australia's Mitchell Starc. The ball hit one of the famous cracks in the final test match to be played at the Perth WACA and took a sharp deviation which completely wrong footed the batsman.

I have drawn it in charcoal with a little red pastel for the ball on pearl grey Canson Mi Teintes pastel paper. It is 13" x 9"
