Model Answer:
I mostly played outdoor games in my childhood and teenage time and later on, after I got admitted to a university, I played mostly indoor games and computer games. Sometimes I played with my friends outside and those were mostly friendly game. I would like to describe a cricket match I participated in my high school level against another school cricket team. 

I was then around 15-16 years old and was in my grade 9. I played for my school cricket team and I participated in some of the games against other teams. Our cricket team participated in an inter-division cricket tournament and I was one of the team members. We defeated some of the teams and qualified to play the final match against the Crescent High school team. 
On the day I noticed that more than 500 people including our teachers and students of our school were present. The cricket ground was in a festive mode. Our team won the toss and elected to bat. We did well in our batting part and totalled 125 in 20 overs. We had many supporters and I played well. 
After 10 overs of the opponent's playing, the match became very tight. Both teams had a chance to win and spectators were enjoying this match very much. I took 3 wickets and fulfilled my overs. In the last over, the other team needed 10 more runs to win and we needed 2 wickets to win the match. To our surprise, the opponent batsman hit a boundary the match was in their favour then. We gathered together and made some plans. The last 3 balls were very exciting and the opponent needed to score two in the last ball. With luck and the quality bowling of our bowlers, we won the match. We were heavily congratulated and won several prizes. I thoroughly enjoyed the game and our winning increased this joy and happiness.
