Twenty Twenty Cricket

Crowded into the bowl, excitement mounts
Shouting as the brightly coloured teams come on
Every ball bowled greeted by an intaken breath
Every shot acclaimed by cheers

The bowler waits restlessly
As a batsman gardens at the wicket
Fielders circle to the boundary edge
Keen to take a catch

The Wicket Keeper nonchalantly sledges
Then, a crack and the ball lofts high
Leather on willow performing the longed for magic
The Great Game is on

Twenty Twenty

Crowded into the bowl, excitement mounting
Shouting as the brightly coloured teams come on
Every ball is greeted by an intaken breath
Every shot is acclaimed by cheers
The bowler waits restlessly
As the batsman gardens at the wicket
Fielders circle to the boundary edge
Keen to take the catch
Wicket keeper nonchalantly sledges
A crack and the ball lofts high
Leather on willow performing the longed for magic
The Great Game is on
