Having your ISO set wrong shouldn't make your pictures dark, it may make them grainy but not dark. ISO 400 shouldn't be an issue.

 

Actually you've done quite well as in the sort of shot its often difficult to get detail in the whites which you have achieved.  The metering has probably got it right.

 

In your processing software drag the midtones toward the highlight end and you'll lift the darkeness in the background.

 

Edit: Just noticed your exposure bias was set to -1 EV, that is probably why a couple of shots are a bit dark in the mid-ranges.

With cricket in bright sun its usually best to underexpose and try pull back the shadows in post or if using Nikon use Active D Lighting

Good shots to use your example. I'm hoping to head down to the local cricket club one lazy Sunday afternoon over the summer, so useful tips cheers. :)

Very good point - incidentally how much would you charge?
Now then, it's a race between Sandie....and Fairburn....and the little man is in........yeees he's in.

I, just like those Castleford supporters felt that the ball should have gone to David Plange but he put the bit betwen his teeth...and it was a try

Kevin Ward - best player I have ever seen

The real Mick Gledhill is what you see on here, a Bradford fan ........, but deep down knows that Bradford are just not good enough to challenge the likes of Leeds & St Helens.

Depends on the paper, nobodies getting rich in my neck of the woods selling to the local daily paper, not now its readership is only a shade over 6k a day.

 

As a starter for 10 I'd refer back to here for anything on a recurring basis.
