Place and occasion: last month I had an opportunity to enjoy an international one-day cricket match. It was played between the two eternal rivals Pakistan and India. The match was held at the Mirpur national cricket stadium in Dhaka, Bangladesh. I was accompanied by my bosom friend, Kabir. We somehow managed two tickets and were eagerly waiting for the much-looked-for day to come.
Description: the much looked for the day came at last. We entered the stadium at 8 a.m. we were greatly amazed to see the overwhelming number of spectators. The two teams entered the stadium with majestic motions. We, the spectators, welcomed them with ear-deafening shoutings. The Pakistani team was led by Md. Wasim Akram and the Indian team was led by Shourav Ganguli. Pakistan won the toss and decided to bat first. Syed Anwar and Shahid Afridi were the opening bowlers. The two opening batsmen of Pakistan were battling fiercely against the fast bowlers of India. Syed Anwar scored a century. Eventually, Pakistan team came to an end with the big score of 326 runs.
Then the Indian team started batting. They seemed to be high spirited and tried to keep the match under their control. But their luck went disfavor after 25 over’s. They could not stand against the fast bowling of Wasim Akram, Shoaib Skter, Razzaq and Waqar Younus. Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid were the top scorers of the Indian team. They scored 70 and 75 runs respectively. The India team began to lose their wickets one after another. Then the match began to move towards the Pakistani team. At one stage, the Indian team scored 280 losing all the wickets. The Pakistani team won the match by 46 runs.
