GALLERY 18: Cricket World Cup - Long Off, Caught Out ...

In order to generate a wide audience for the world cup cricket matches, a campaign was launched to educate non-cricket fans and explain some of the jargon. Eleven ads were produced altogether, each of which demonstrate a cricket term in a simple, no-nonsense and humorous way. The key is in the believable performances with 'long off' proving to be a real stomach-churner and 'caught out' a scene of utter embarrassment.
