1999 Second Test

Surprised at their own position of expelling a human being from the game.  The dejected batsman leaves, his smart teammates in the foreground jeer and criticize, as they tolerate no excuses for not being a victor.  The symbol of “OUT” is in itself so symbolic of a major foible for our species, winners and losers, creates a very primitive and competitive way of existing.  It is a very stressful way to exist.
