Formerly, we had a cricket match played between the DAV Higher Secondary School's senior boys’ team
and our school team. There were a mass of audience. It was bright and warm day. Even though there
was half an hour for the match to get started the stands and the galleries were cram full. The match got
started at 9.00 a.m. The DAV team won the toss and elected to bat first. Their hitters were sent as their
opening batsmen. The DAV team started with displaying their full hold over batting and striking skill and
within first half-an-hour scored 55 runs. Then, the DAV team players followed one after another so they
were all out for a total of 140 runs by 11.30 hrs.
The match was resumed after half hour break with our school team best scorers going as opening
batsmen. The next 45 minutes witnessed an exciting display of hitting sixes and fours by both batsmen,
with team's score reaching 105 runs before lunch-break at 1.00 p.m. The matches took a sudden turn
when it was resumed after lunch-break, and in the next 25 minutes both openers were out, adding 15
runs. With 9 players in hand and only 21 runs to make in about 3 hours’ time, the victory was certain.
The DAV team also tightened up their fielding to face the challenge. The next 2 hours' play was full of
excitement and display of batting and fielding skills, but our school team managed to score 141 runs and
we won. If you believe in yourself and have dedication and pride – and never quit, you'll be a winner.
Thanks to all team member for your wonderful team spirit.
