Game of Cricket - a short speech
I like the game of cricket. I played
cricket a lot in my childhood and am still playing. My friends were very
interested too. I like the game when it is going good, when the players
are playing seriously and displaying their full talent. Cricket is called
a gentleman's game but now it has become a skillful, daring, wise, fast and athletic man's
game. It is not easy to perform very well at the national and international levels.
Cricket originated from United Kingdom, but now
cricket has made Asian subcontinent as the biggest base. Cricket is played mainly in commonwealth
countries. But some other countries also
started playing it. Cricket has now given employment to thousands
of people and is giving entertainment to lakhs of people around the world. Cricket has become a career for many sports
persons. Use of latest technologies and speed has made cricket more interesting than the traditional a dull and slow game.
I watch the cricket played by the international and national
players. I like the one day matches and the twenty-twenty formats.
But they are sometimes too nerve breaking. When excitement reaches the
pinnacle, it is difficult to bear. I like it when Rohit Sharma, and Virat
Kohli play the ball very well. I used to like the good strokes that
Sachin Tendulkar played a few years ago. I like the powerful helicopter shot of
What I like more is the good bowling when the bowlers bowl
inswingers and outswingers. It looks so magical that the ball curves it
way due to physics and pressure. It becomes boring often when the batsmen
play too much of dot balls.
Sometimes the good fielding attempts by the fieldsmen pulls
our attention back on to the game. The diving catches and diving stops at
the rope are quite interesting and awesome to watch. I can not dive so well.
But it is ok.
I like many other games and play them too whenever I get a chance
to. I keep cricket, my
studies and my responsibilities all in their places.
