An Exciting Cricket Match
Cricket is one of the most popular and exciting outdoor sports. Some of us get the opportunity to play first class cricket, but there are millions who enjoy seeing it being played. It gives us moments of leisure and pleasure and fills us with a competitive spirit. I witnessed the demonstration of the greatest excitement and determination at Mirpur Stadium, Dhaka. It was a fine day. A large number of people including men, women and children from all walks of life gathered there to enjoy the match between Bangladesh and Pakistan. To be a good sports team, one has to be aggressive and this was shown in the final between the two teams. Bangladesh won the toss and decided to bat first. Tamim Iqbal and Junaed Siddique were sent as openers. It was a right decision by the captain, because Tamim Iqbal slammed the ball over the field. It was due to his hard hitting that Bangladesh achieved a good start. Junaed Siddique was very careful and most of the time simply obstructed. But as time passed, he grasped the strategy of the bowlers and began to fully support Tamim. He completed his half-century by playing keen and beautiful shots. After him, Tamim Iqbal could not steadily face the bowlers and proceeded towards the pavilion in a short time.
However Sakib Al Hasan made a stand and was able to increase the score to 218. Mohammad Asraful and Musfiq Rahim played a beautiful inning and Bangladesh team snatched a total of 269 for 8. This terrifying score marked down the morals of the Pakistan Team. They made a poor start, as their first wicket fell when the score was only ten. However, their middle order batsmen kamral Akmal made a great effort and cheered the Pakistan Team. Also Imran Najir and Mezbaul Haque shown their extra ordinary Performance. However, when Sakib Al Hasan came to bowl, the hopes of Bangladesh team revived. He bowled extraordinary well and just after 5 overs, the Pakistan team had reached to 260 for 7. The rival needed barely 10 runs to win in 4 balls. Rana Navid played excellent and take 6runs in two balls. But At the end Pakistan team fail to make more 4 run in 2 balls. Bangladesh team win the match. Sakib Al hasan declared as the man of the match. It was really and exciting match. I will never forget this fantastic match because it was the first cricket match, I withnessed in Mirpur stadium.
