While at the excellent Wroxham Miniature Worlds in Norfolk a couple of years ago, when such heady pursuits were possible, I happened upon this curious field setting in the most delightful village surrounds.
Note the rarely seen long stop, in conjunction with the lack of slips and a square leg umpire who clearly enjoys the danger aspect of the game.
Those ludicrously short square boundaries might also pose significant risk to passing trains and automobiles.
There’s no way all match personnel and spectators are crowding into that pavilion, even in non-socially-distanced times. Thoroughly accurate in all other regards, however.
