Introducing a live sports match

Sports events are a great source of entertainment and national pride. It is always exciting to watch them live. So today I’d take this opportunity to speak about a live sports match that I’ve watched in the stadium.

What it was?

It was a Cricket match..! I am a whole-hearted devotee of the game, in fact so passionate about it that I never miss any live match broadcast on television. We Indians celebrate the game as a festival and treat cricketers no less than gods.

When you watched it?

I watched it last Sunday. There was an ODI (One-day Int’l) cricket match that took place between India and Pakistan at PCA Stadium, Mohali. It was my first ever experience in the Stadium and so I went there with my kinfolks.

What it was like?

The crowd was cheering!! People have inflatable balloons, team flags and vuvuzelas that reverberated the atmosphere. Stadium coruscated with flood lights and loud music blares amazed me. I was fascinated by the swiftness of spider Cam, the ease with which it recorded each and every moment of the cricket match.

How you felt about it?

I felt extremely happy because watching your favourite sportspersons live is a great experience. During the match, when Yuvraj Singh hit a massive Six, the ball reached the stands and I throw it back to the players. I was so fortunate!

Concluding the cue card

In the end I’d just say that.. it was indeed the best day of my life and I think everyone should watch a live sports event of their choice at least once in their lifetime.

Do you think competition is good for students?

I think a competition prevails a sense of alert, without which students can be on cruise control and never grow. Standing against their opponents and compete makes them self-confident. So I think a healthy competitive environment should be an integral part of student life.
