A Cricket Match Essay
Cricket is quite an interesting game. It has become popular in the whole world. It has a particular charm of its own. Last Friday, I happened to see a “one day cricket match” at Lahore. It was played between India and Pakistan. There was a huge gathering at the stadium. India decided to play first. The openers played a steady game.
Within first 15 overs, the score rose to 80 runs. But soon Kapil Dev was out. Then he was replaced by Madan Lal. He made 50 runs in 12 overs. Soon there was break for lunch. Indian team scored 220 runs for three wickets in the fixed 50 overs. Then the Pakistani players started batting. They opened carefully and scored 40 runs in 10 overs.
After 20 overs our players became more aggressive. Imran Khan hit two boundaries. Mian Dad scored a beautiful century. All the Pakistani players played beautiful shots. They scored 221 runs for the loss of three wickets in the fixed fifty overs. Pakistan won the match by seven wickets. It was a very interesting match. We enjoyed it very much. It kept us spell-bound till the end.
