Wisden-MCC picture limelight boosts Bexley

The name of Bexley CC will be part of the Lord's cricket scene through the summer after a picture from a match last year featured in the short list of the Wisden–MCC Cricket Photograph of the Year 2014 competition.

The competition attracted more than 400 pictures from around the world and as usual included many entries from amateur photographers, including one by Andy Clay that grabbed the judges' attention. His image captured a moment when the Bexley fielder Joe Russell went close to holding a leaping one-hand catch on the boundary in a second-team game.
