An essay on My Favourite Game.
“All works and no play make Jack a dull boy” goes the famous saying. I too enjoy playing all sorts of games-both indoors as well as outdoors. Among the indoor games, I enjoy playing carom and chess the most. I also enjoy playing badminton and table tennis with my friends and cousins.
But the game I like the most is cricket. I not only enjoy playing this game but also watching it. It is my favorite game. We play cricket in our school also. I am in our school team and I really enjoy playing for our school. I open innings for our school’s team.
I like all the aspects of the game-batting, fielding and bowling. I especially like taking catches and diving to stop the boundaries during fielding. I bowl sometimes. But it is batting that I enjoy the most. I am also the vice-captain of the school team. In the last inter-school tournament, our school had grabbed the trophy and I had contributed 58 runs in my team’s score.
Our coach is very hardworking too. We practice every day from 6AM to 8AM in the morning and 4PM to 5PM in the evening. We first warm up by taking a few rounds of our ground, then we do a few stretching and fitness exercises. Then we practice as per our turns-fielding, batting or bowling.

I also enjoy watching the game whenever there is a live telecast on television. India is of course my favourite team but I also like watching the Australian and Srilankan teams. I therefore enjoy watching any match of the Indian team and if the other team is also one of my favourites, it is like a cherry on the cake.
Recently, I got a chance to watch a live cricket match at the Feroz Shah Kotla Stadium between India and srilanka. It was a thrilling experience. I enjoyed the match especially, the great performances of captain Dravid, Sehwag, Tendulkar, Dhoni, Kaif and Kumble. Sachin Tendulkar is my favorite batsman. But the new sensation Dhoni too has won the hearts of many people including mine. It was a great joy to watch my favourite teams pitched up against each other. India had won in the end, therefore our joy was doubled and we felt our watching the Match was even more rewarded. I wish, I could get such more chances to watch live matches.
