Sadly, in our country cricket manages to grab all the attention. This, irrespective of the fact that our tennis players, shuttlers, and hockey players have earned us great acclaim time and again. And it’s important that people take up a variety of different sports to find what they really enjoy playing. Not everyone wants to play a long game of cricket and some people might prefer to play a sport like tennis instead.
