Wow! 9-year-old Jash from Ahmedabad breaks into a fun and fantastic poem about the joys of playing cricket and the life lessons in learning a sport.

I started cricket 

when I was four.

Knee pad and gloves,

First time I wore !


I was ready to play and here came the ball,

Knock ! It hit my nose.

My face grew sore,

I cried and cried.

My father said to me,

“It’s alright!”

He encouraged me a lot,

and gave me advice. 


“Keep the ball

in your sight.

Get up, you are on strike.” 

It made me feel better,

I had a bruised nose, but it did not matter.


When I was 5, I hit my first 4,

People in the colony said

“Once more, once more.” 

I asked them, “Ye dil mange more?” 

(Does your heart want more?) 

They said 4, 4! 

I said Yay! 

And sprang out with joy like a wild boar.


Now my bat swings,

Like an angel’s wings,

Everybody cheers for me, there is a lot of singing,

And my phone does not stop ringing.
