cricket ๐Ÿ

a battle between two nations
not with guns and ammunition
with a ball and a bat

where best of best
called playing elevens
shoulder the dreams of mass

one day five day twenty20
you pick your variation
of this thrilling game of chance

five days is what i choose
where players test each other
to not lose

where seamless innings are played
where wickets fall like house of cards
where some fight back against all odds

just like in our lives
we are all fighting
to beat our former selves
falling down
getting up
mistakes are all over
one too many innings
too many wickets have fallen
getting out on a duck
chasing down a pile of dreams
and expectations
we are all gathering experience
to play this one last innings
our dream inning
