Cricket is a world-famous game. A game develops discipline and team – spirit. Pakistani players are famous all over the world. Last winter, I saw a cricket match in Faisalabad. It was played between the Pakistan Cricket Team and the West Indies Cricket Team.
The match was played at Iqbal Stadium. There was a huge gathering at the Iqbal Stadium. Leading Pakistani cricketers were playing in this match. I witnessed the fine game of Inzamam-ul-Huq. He scored a spectacular 75 in 100 deliveries. He hit eight fours and two towering sixes. But soon he was run out.
