The hacks at the Daily Telegraph sports department have been taking on the art of the cartoon after a row over image rights deprived them of photography from the current test match series between England and India.

In a splendid example of making a spectacle when delivered of a googly, the journalists drew the action as it happened using some of the many digital drawing tools that now exist. We’ve linked to a few examples from the first and second tests.

Of course, the artwork is hurried and everyone thinks they are a comedian, but we say helmets off for effort. But, you know where to come when you need the professionals.
