Nice sequence, even though I have little clue about cricket (playing hockey).
How about trying a little more DoF to capture some more detail in the fielder's face? Should still look good DR and noise wise with maybe 2/3 of a stop higher ISO.

Foreshortening with the long lens hides the fact that the fielders are at least five metres behind the batsmen and as I am at least sixty metres from the batsman so getting enough DOF to make them all sharp is not the easiest of tasks.

This photo gives an idea of how far away they stand depending on how fast the ball is bowled
