Stepping on the pitch,

Feeling the bat in your hands,

Looking at the bowler,

Adjusting your stance.

Swinging the bat,

Hitting the ball really fine,

That feeling of satisfaction,

When it crosses the boundary line.

Bowling really fast,

Right onto the stumps,

Shocking the batsman,

Giving him goosebumps.

Scoring a hundred,

Or taking a wicket,

Are all priceless moments,

Of this wonderful game cricket.

A direct throw on the stump,

A spectacular diving catch,

Hitting a six on the last ball,

Winning an important match.

Playing for hours,

In the strong summer heat,

You will find cricket being played,

In every indian street.
