Topic:What is your favorite sport?
Hi, I'm Hanna from Australia and today I'd like to talk to you about my favorite sport.
My favorite sport is cricket. Cricket is a game that originated in England and these days it's played in countries like Pakistan, Sri Lanka, South Africa, Australia, so lots of places that used to be part of the old British Commonwealth.
Cricket's a little bit like baseball in that you have one person who hits the ball with the bat and then another another person who throws the ball. But instead of calling it a pitcher, we call it a bowler.
The other main difference is that instead of having a diamond, in cricket we have a rectangle and then the batter runs back and forth across that rectangle to score points. And that's my favorite sport.
