Short Essay on a very exciting cricket Match that you recently witnessed
Recently, I happened to witness a one day cricket match played between the D.A.V. Higher Secondary School’s senior boys team and that of our school team.
There were a large number of on lookers. The two teams had carved out a name for being been contestants. So naturally, there was a great enthusiasm both among players and spectators. It was quiet sunny. Although there was a chill in the air. But the crowd was highly expectant. They were debating about the possible result of the day. It was still half an hour for the match to start. But the stands and the galleries were almost full. All were waiting for the players to begin the great event.
The match was started at 9.00 a.m. sharp. The D.A.V. team won the toss and chose their best the hitters Rama Krishnan and Satya Prakash as their opening batsmen. Of course, The D.A.V team started with a ‘bang’ displaying their full hold over batting and striking skill and within first half- an-hour scored 55 runs. Thereafter, the D.A.V. team players followed one after another so fast that they were all out for a total of 140 runs by 11.30 hrs. The match was resumed after 1/2 hour break with our school team best scorers Ajit and Mohit entering the field as opening batsmen. The next 45 minutes witnessed an exciting display of hitting sixers and fourers by both Ajit and Mohit, with our school team’s score touching 105 runs before lunch-break at 13.00 hours.
The matches took a sudden turn when it was resumed after lunch-break, and in the next 25 minutes both Ajit and Mohit were out, barely adding 15 runs. With 9 players in hand and only 21 runs to make in about 3 hours time, the victory was still not very uncertain. So with resumed vigour our school team players continued their onslaught. The D.A.V. team also tightened up their fielding to face the challenge. The next 2 hours’ play was full of excitement and display of batsmen’s hitting skill and excellent fielding, but our school team managed to score 141 runs and won the match.
