What did the dark lungi guy do?

This beautiful pic was captured in Wellington, New Zealand. Roland's description - "View from the cable-car-station in the Botanical Gardens down to Lambton Harbour. The green plain to the right are the cricket grounds of Kelburn Park."
This pic reminds me of the umpteen times that I have gone past cricket fields while sitting in a train, seen just the bowler running in to bowl and wondered immediately after losing the view what the batsman would have done to that delivery. Most of those cricket fields were in villages in interior Andhra and the players would more often than not be wearing colorful lungis. So my thought process would go something like - "Would that dark lungi guy (batsman) have gone on the front foot? - That short white lungi guy (bowler) seemed like the full-length type bowler. Did he drive straight past him? May be it was a full-toss. May be he cross-batted it straight down the throat of the fielder at cow corner". Well, It usually was one of those fields where the cow corner did have real cows grazing.
How many of you have wondered the same?
