A Modal answer with band 7+

Well, most of the time I do watch cricket matches on Television with comfort at home. However, there are a couple of matches for which I went to stadiums to watch. Those live cricket matches were played at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai and the main reason to watch those matches is these were World cup matches and in my city.

The last live match I watched in 2019, and I remember that the match was between India and New Zealand. It was Sunday and the stadium was packed with cricket loves. It was a Day-Night match that started around 8:00 pm. I had bought enough food to eat.

As the match was between India and New Zealand, the majority of supports were Indian. In India's inning, they manage to score around 280 runs in 50 overs and give a target of 281 to win for New Zealanders. The match becomes exciting when there was only 6 run needed for New Zealand to win from 4 balls. This situation put pressure on both teams. In the end, India wins the match.

Well, of course as the match won by India, it was worth watching a live match. The icing of the cake was that my favorite player Sachin awarded as the man of the match. So, this live match I will never forget in my life.
