Surreal! Have a glimpse of 'world's first underground cricket match'

New Delhi: The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Saturday shared a surreal looking image of a photo captured of a moment from the "world's first underground cricket match!"

At first glimpse, it looked like a artistic masterpiece with enough interplay of light and dark, then the characters — psst, players in white silhouette against an underground backdrop.

The backdrop, which at first looked a painting canvas with careless splash , merged with the action, at the centre perfectly.

Even the players, caught in action, with their mining helmets reflect the joy of play the game.

Truly, a classic photo.

With little research, it emerged that world's first underground cricket match had taken place sometimes in the December of 2013, in a slate mine in the Lake District, Cumbria, in England.
