I Love Cricket by Mitchell Harte (Highly Commended)

I love cricket
I really want to get a wicket
I’m going to bowl a fast ball
At the batter who’s really tall
I’m going to knock over middle stump
It’s going to make a gigantic thump
The umpire puts his finger in the air
My whole team shouts “Yeah!”
“Woohoo” I got him out for a Golden Duck
It was all my skill and a little bit of luck
The umpire says “That’s wicket number ten”
So I’m going to go and bat with my partner Ben
I jog out onto the cricket pitch
I hear Mum and Dad in the crowd yell “Go Mitch!”
The bowler bowls a fast ball at me
I hit a reverse sweep down on one knee
I run as fast as the Flash
I hope Ben and I don’t crash
Next ball I’ll try and hit for a four
Because my legs are getting really sore
I hit a six on the last ball of the game
Everyone wins a trophy, which are all the same
