Cricket Match

• Makeshift stumps, rough pitch and rubber ball

• The match was enjoyable, but the trip was tiring


  • Last Sunday there was a cricket match in the village of Pratapgarh. It is about hundred kilometers for from my town. Early in the morning I started to go there. There was an old bus standing at the bus-stand for that village.

  • Though it was very crowded, I could get a seat. The bus started at 6 am. Mostly the passengers were purely rural. They were talking in rustic manner. They were sweating.

  • A fainting smell had spread all around. Still I was very comfortable. The passengers were coopera- tive. At about 8.30 am the bus reached the village. First I went to visit the temple of Lord Shiva. Then I visited the fair. At about 10 am I reached the cricket ground. A big crowd had assembled there. People were very excited.

  • The match was really full of excitement though in a rural manner. It was a limited over match. It ended in a draw at about 4 pm. I got the same old rickety bus. I reached my home after the living journey. However I enjoyed the match—and the village people.
