Cricket Wicket!

by Sanmay Moitra

My favorite game is cricket. In IPL my favorite team is KKR (Kolkata Knight Riders) and in international cricket my favorite team is Ind (India).

Whenever a match is played by India or KKR I don’t miss a single ball. CSKs (Chennai Super Kings) have won two IPLs back-to-back, but still I don’t support CSK.

I support KKR because I have stayed in Kolkata for 8 years. Even though I have now shifted to Delhi,  my heart still goes out to KKR and not to the Delhi Daredevils!

My favorite bowler is Brett Lee. He is one of the best bowlers in the world. My favorite batsman is Sachin Tendulkar. He is the greatest batsman in the world.

My greatest wish is to meet Sachin Tendulkar. My Mamu (mother’s brother) has promised me to take me to meet him some day. I am waiting for that day!

Sanmay Moitra is 8 years old. He is a student of class III at Delhi Public School, NCR Gurgaon, India. He loves playing and watching cricket, playing the musical keyboard, swimming and reading story books in English and Hindi.
