Funday Times - A Poem for the week

Test Cricket

By Chamika Fonseka, Colombo Int. School

Batsmen are defending,
Bowlers bowling maidens,
Very few boundaries,
Occasional sixers,
This is test cricket.

Five days, length game,
Patience, test game,
Two innings, leads and trails,
White suit, red ball,
This is test cricket.

Elegant cover drives. Kumar Sanga,
Whacks to the boundary, TM Dilshan,
Perfect cut shots,
Captain Mahela,
A bit of aggression,
Dinesh Chandimal,
This is test cricket.

Wondrous bowling, Rangana Herath,
Stumps flattened, left arm Chanaka,
Rising star player,
Thisara Perera,
Threatening player,
Suraj Randiv,
This is test cricket
and I love it.
