County cricket at The Oval
A view from the Vauxhall End five minutes before lunch on the first day of Surrey's match with Nottinghamshire. Former Australian captain Ricky Ponting - playing his penultimate first-class innings before retiring later in 2013 - defends a ball from Samit Patel. Shortly after lunch Patel had Ponting caught at short leg for 29 and Surrey, who had chosen to bat, were whisked out for 198. (Ponting was more successful in his final innings, scoring a match-saving 169 not out - his 82nd first-class hundred - as the match was drawn.) The immense Victorian Pavilion dominates the far side of the ground.
