Cricket match

On Monday afternoon I went to the Shizuoka cricket ground next to the Abe River, near Kano Bridge. It was a national holiday, sports day, and when I got to the ground I saw a cricket match being played.

What a beautiful ground

It seemed like everyone understood the game, but later I found that for most players it was their first time to play cricket. Cricket is not easy at first, but these players looked really good, and very enthusiastic.

The players were all university students (some of them are in my class) and it was part of a day of cricket practice and enjoyment, followed by a barbecue. What a fantastic day. I was so sorry that I couldn’t stay for so long, the cricket was so exciting and the barbecue looked so tasty.

Good luck and thanks to Kosuke and Dipak (Deepak?) for organising such a great day.
