400 f5.6 is also worth a look..... also a Sigma 120-300 f2.8 + 1.4 or 2 times extender is another option

Why not try the 100-400 mm. It will give you the reach as well as versatility.

Anyhow, this is one of the shots I got at a game recently in India with the 100-400 mm with a 7D. The field was compliant with the International specifications so I must admit that even 400 mm seemed less than sufficient.

I plan to get a 1.4x teleconverter and will see how it goes. I will lose autofocus on the 7D but think it will be manageable because cricket is one game where you can focus manually and wait for the appropriate moment!
