Cheering !!!!!!!!!!! For testing TESTS ......................
These days are tests days. Some are on vacation after tests – terms. They are school children. Tests; this universe is full of tests, various, aspects, subjects, concepts, theories etc. Some tests some.
These ‘tests’ that I like to talk about today is a part of big matches and has become part of human interests and agendas, since many , many years , decades.
I do not know ‘why’ the English thought of such game of such style to initiate at the beginning. There must be a reason though I am unaware it. I have to read the book of Cricket to understand such facets and sides of cricket – history.
There were some of the following in their minds and plans at the beginning, let me assume, to test the patience, to test the strengths of their people, to spend their time – leisure, on something ‘interesting and learnable, to learn about ‘challenges’, how to defeat a team, how to give other sides / teams and aim or a target to win, achievable or unachievable. I do not know what was on their mind if the above mentioned were none of the reasons.
The tests – the matches apart from other tests exiting in this universe to test this and that of standards or levels of people, of human minds, these matches – tests, brings loads of things in to the hearts and minds of sports lovers, not only in to the people who watch matches sitting on the pavilion of the Macca of Cricket, The Lords ground. (Thank you Herman Perera sir for refreshing my mind on this and I hope that I have narrated it right.)
In Galle ……………… (International cricket ground)
The two countries are playing one of the matches scheduled and if my memory is accurate by around 5 .00 pm Sri Lanka has scored around 80+ for one wicket.
The tests matches are different to one day matches or to the matches 50 over or 20 over matches.
Oh! I forgot to mention the two countries; the match is between Sri Lanka and Pakistan. I think the Pakistani Team had batted well and scored more than 400.
Some people show much interest towards one day matches than the test matches.
Innings are important in these matches and every inning is important for both sides that play this type of matches. The player has to maintain his patience until the match over though they have to play many over/s compared to the limited over matches. Some players become steady and stable throughout the inning or innings.
The scores ……………….
Other than if the player is capable enough to play faster in the limited over matches there are many chances for a player to earn more than a century in these matches. The scores of the team and the scores of the personal score lanes of individual player or each and every player shows the abilities of the team and individual performances of each the player, as a whole and specialties in scoring days long matches. The test matches.
After all ……………..
The result of any match shows the levels of team efforts
The Pavilions are for match lovers. They can watch their matches while eating a piece of cake or slice of sandwich of their choices. But they should not forget the matches on going in the ground though none of us should forget the real matches of real lives of our day to day dealings.
Cricket is one of the games that players within a certain frame work of rules and regulations like in any other matches or games.
Sir Garfield or Mr. S. Gavaskar , S. Jayasuriya, Mahela or Mahanama, Wettamuni all these gentlemen, I am not aware of all the records they hold all I know is the names of these gentlemen crafted their names in the hearts and minds of people, the sport fans of now and then. That it self is a record. Who ever does justice to the game they play is a winner.
What ever the match matches with people’s interests and desires helps the game to sustain not only in the hearts and minds of people but also as a game of the universe.
Our Mahela Jayawardena has decided to retire from the test matches after this series though it’s a sad decision I WISH HIM ALL THE BEST AND THANK YOU, CONGRATULATIONS! MAHELA JAYAWARDENA FOR YOUR UNSPOILED PLAY OF TEST MATCH CARRIER RECORDS, RECORDED AND SEALED IN THE HEARTS AND MINDS OF THE CRICKET LOVERS OF THIS UNIVERSE
The matches are limited because cricket matches are not the only matches that are playing in the grounds of this universe we live.
There are many things that we can discuss about matches – tests, about cricket as a sports activity, grounds of plays, the commentaries, how to forget the FANS, the SCORE BOARD ………………
The book of Cricket, the chapters …………..
Let me narrate a another chapter on some other day because I do not think that I discuss everything or many things about the test matches but bit and pieces from here and there
I am a fan …………….
I am not an expert of cricket. I am a fan of cricket. So these are some ideas of a fan, do not forget it.
Thank you for reading ……………………..
