The Perfect Shot



It was a pleasant sunday afternoon. Sleeping lazily after a nice heavy meal, I was awaken by shouts of children playing cricket in the street. Waking up, I walked to the window and looked out. As he saw me at the window, the batsman exchanged smiles with me and continued on his game.

Sunday afternoons are the best time to watch 'gully cricket' in streets, where boys gather with a bat and a tennis ball to play the game of cricket.

Relaxing myself in a chair near the window, and resting my weary legs on the window frame I watched the batsman take position to face the next ball. As the ball paced towards him, the batsman cleared it square to a clean perfect shot.

Thanks FlyingStars, Sujata, Naada, Kichu-Chinnu, Shreelal, & Luke for the inspiring comments.

Kichu-Chinnu, thanks for the advice. I will try it the next time :)

Yes Luke, cricket is interesting. But I too hardly play the game. Being a huge football fan, I am inclined to football more :)

Great texture and color. I love how the color of the window frames works so well with the boys shirt. Nice work.
