Model Answer:
This is a nice topic to talk about and I thank you for this opportunity. Exciting sports are fun to play or watch, offer a thrilling experience and attract many people, especially the young. Aerobatics, air racing, parachuting, skydiving, field archery, badminton, volleyball, basketball, cricket, skateboarding, river surfing and ice climbing are some of the very exciting sports in my opinion. For this cue card topic, I would talk about cricket that I personally find very enthralling and exciting.

The modern version of this sports date back to the 18th century and this is quite popular in Australia, England, South Asia, Southern Africa, and in many other countries. Two teams compete to defeat each other and each team has 11 players on their side. There are three main variations of this sports and they are One Day International, T20 and Test Series.

I have played this sports almost every day in my high school days. I even had been a part of our high school cricket team. These days I often watch cricket tournaments on sports channels. As our national cricket team plays this sports in the international level and one of the members of the 9 test playing countries, this is the most popular sports in our country. I would say this is an easy sport once you know the rules. However, being a good batsman or a dependable bowler requires dedication and regular practice. Since I have played this sports for more than 7-8 years, it does not seem difficult to me. Nevertheless, it can be difficult for someone who has never played it before.

The very nature of this sports, the competition between the players of the both teams, the uncertainty of the result, the timely decisions and physical fitness it demands to win are all very exciting and enthralling. This sport even offers a huge excitement to the spectators who enjoy it either in a stadium or on the TV. A simple mistake or a timely decision can alter the result of this sports. Finally, the run-chasing is quite unique abut this sport and make it more enjoyable. Millions of people enjoy the live cricket tournaments all over the world due to the entertainment, excitement and joy this sport brings to them. As I have played this sports for a long, I find it even more challenging, entertaining and exciting.
