Pick Of The Day - Skate Park Sightscreen

Newport Pagnell, Bucks
Is this the most bizarre backdrop to a cricket ground you've seen?

Thanks to Rich Baybrook, who has sent us this picture of Newport Pagnell Cricket Club, which appears to have eschewed the traditional sightscreen in favour of a skate park.

He adds: "Still love this photo taken a few years ago now which makes the ground in Newport Pagnell, Bucks look like there is a skate park in the middle of the outfield. 

Taken during a game against my team and local rivals North Crawley CC, doesn't make a great sight screen!"

What do you think? Is this the most bizarre backdrop for a game of cricket? Have you seen any others?
