Front and back pages of news websites and newspapers in many countries were filled with images captured by sports news photographers working for independent international news agencies as part of their investment in cricket coverage in India last week (March 2021). The well-established global network of each of the news agencies (Associated Press, Agence France Presse, Getty Images, and Thomson Reuters) meant that images were transmitted instantly from the pitch-side – resulting in thousands of publications on the day and afterward. The image above of Indian bowler Ravichandran Ashwin was taken by Surjeet Yadav of Getty Images.
