A cricket match essay for 2nd year and 10th

Cricket is now passion around the world. It has become the most played game across the world. In Pakistan, it is played at every level from streets to international stadiums. Many students join professional cricket with the hope of getting space into the Pakistan Cricket team.

Last Sunday, our college team had a cricket match against Superior College. The match was played at Govt. College Cricket ground. The match started at 10 am and we reached the stadium at 9:30 am to facilitate and support our team.

Both teams were ready to give outstanding performance. With blue T-shirts and yellow trousers, our team called the PCTs (Punjab College Tigers). Superior College named its cricket team as SLG (Superior Lion Group). Both teams reached the ground and toss was won by our captain.

PCT decided to bowl first. The first over did not show any special activity as our fast bowler Muhammad Javed gave two singles. The game went slow normal till 5th over when our wicket-keeper stumped one of their openers. He was gone at 14 in 20 balls with 1 four. It was 20 after 5 overs with a wicket fallen.

The ball was handed to our leg spinner Zeshan. He took amazing two wickets in his first over. The top order of SLG was back to pavilion in six overs putting only 22 on the scoreboard. The start was in favour of PCTs.

Then came Naveed Ahmad, a left-handed batsman of SLG who played a brilliant inning of 42 runs with seven boundaries and was taken by Ali Ahmad on long-off. By the end of 15 overs, SLG were 93/5. The last five overs of the innings gave 26 more runs for 3 more wickets. SLG finished the innings at 119/8. Now PCTs required 120 runs in 20 overs to win the game.

The 2nd inning started after 20 minutes of break and our openers Haris and Sohail reached the pitch. Haris faced 1st ball and had a narrow escape from being caught behind. It proved a good omen for the team as he added 35 with the help of 4 fours and 2 sixes to the score just facing 28 balls. He was bowled by Shan Ali.

The game was in our favour till the end of 12th over. The scoreboard told 82/2 after 12 overs. PCTs required 38 more runs in eight overs with an average of 3.2. It was an easy task. But the misfortune was waiting for its turn.

SLG captain gave the ball to a young bowler named Atif Munir. He was off-break bowler and was famous for his E-googley. He took four wickets in his first two overs. We were shocked to see our best middle-order Usman and Fahad going back facing a few balls each. The whole game was changed and now the scoreboard showed 92/6 after 15 overs.

We still had hope in our all-rounder Salman Sharif. He was on the crease playing with confidence. Next over was to be bowled by a fast bowler. His first delivery was wide off the stumps, as it rose up, Salman went on backfoot and hit it hard over the head of the bowler for a huge six.

The audience clapped and cheered the boundary as it was the need of the time. The next ball was a wide. The bowler was under pressure and made another mistake- he bowled a full toss and Salman was ready for it. He pulled it to the mid-on for another six. Brilliant!

Now we needed 8 runs in 2 overs. We lost another wicket in the beginning of next over. But fortunately, it was not Salman. Babar came to bat. He knew how to take a single. He took a single and brought Salman on strike. Salman tried to play a good length ball on long-on but missed it completely. Then he hit a brilliant four on the last ball of the over.

We needed 3 runs in last over with two wickets in hand. But the victory was not in our fate. Aslam was a run out on the first ball of the last over. We had lost the hope: 5 balls and 3 runs with one wicket in hand. The next ball brought a single and so did the last ball. The match ended in a draw. We were both happy and sad. We could win the match but we could lose it at the same time.

It was a thrilling cricket match in my life.
