The T:20 has been able to make spectators return to the game of cricket

This Game

Many of the Caribbean countries cricket stadiums at nights emit a bright beam
The Caribbean Premier League one a dream has now an attractive scene
From the Northern tip to the southern side that mood is so electrifying
And the action out there in the middle on show is definitely not disappointing

But it is know that cricket in the Caribbean whether it be by day or night
Have shown and proven to the world that it is a very spectacular sight
As it is like a picnic the drinking and the music punctuate the atmosphere
And there are many variations of gyrations that to the world we display

Then in the middle the place where there is the action and reaction
And the performances will be such that it meets the spectator’s satisfaction
Be it fast and aggressive fast bowling with those short bouncers flying
How it is loved when the batsman counter with some cutting and hooking

But in this T20 game how the player seem to up the tempo considerably
And the many improvisations cause many to the sit rooted breathing rapidly
What a shout goes up as the ball like missile over those stand do tower
As the batman hit out swinging with such belligerence an awesome power

It seems that the body can be involve in the action quite easily
How the pulse race as a fielder swoop down on the ball whilst running around the boundary
Collecting the ball and with a flick of the wrist all being done in one action
Throws the ball over the bails to the keeps this done with such precision

What also too is that variety the a spectator can get in the place
There are batsman who can also play with such timing and grace
Stroking the ball with in the gaps in the field so elegantly lace
As there is the bisecting of the fielders who chase but the ball to the boundary race

This fast paced game has been crickets’ salvation and has be responsible most definitely
For the returned interest of the spectators and add the bit of entertainment another entity
And it has caused many to lift that level of play to another height
But of course the fees paid has been that added attraction in its own right.

This deftly stroke play the power hitting mesmerizing spin and aggressive fast bowling
Matched by some breathtaking fielding and some mindboggling catching
Then there is more because you have not see it all the can make the heart give some thumps
As a fielder with only a side view run out a batsman with a throw that uproot the stumps.
