My Indoor cricket tournament
On Friday, the 26th of July, I had an Indoor Cricket Tournament. My team was called the Howick Ryders. In my team I had 8 players, Ethan, Fletcher, Casper, Akshay, Dean, Ritap, Ronnie and Me. Our tournament was set in the Papatoetoe Cricket Grounds.
In that tournament we were versing 7 teams and those teams were called, Guptill, Mcullum, Vitorie, Gayle, Jadeja and the Prem’s. First we versed team Vitorie and won 221-8. Next we challenged team Guptill we won 260-9. After that we played against Jadeja and we again won 305-6.
Later on, we had a 15 minute break, we were had to verse team Mcullum and again won 292-8. In a moment of Victory came the semi final. For our team this was a lot of pressure but we could handle it. We were determined to conquer team Gayle so we played a game of cricket and won 301-7. My team and I never thought that we would come to this stage but we were in the finals. Our team was going to face the undefeated Prem’s. Since it was the Final my coach, Anil Edaker told me to open up the bowling and we took 8 wickets from them. I also opened up the batting and scored 87 runs. We had successfuly won 319-7.
Sooner or later at 3:00 was the Prize ceremony. My undefeatable team and I were going to the Prize Ceremony to claim 1,00 dollars worth of cricket gear for our club, A bat each with the blackcaps signatures on it and a medal each. That moment was so special that I didn’t want that day to end.
finally while i was going home I told my parents everything in the car. For lunch we stopped at Burger King and went home. I felt great and a I hope I have another tournament, really soon.
