(iii) Peaceful Karachi
(iv) My ideal personality

Last ten minutes of an interesting Cricket Match of World Cup 2015

The most exciting cricket match of World Cup 2015 was the Semi final match between New Zealand and South Africa.

The last 10 minutes of this match were very thrilling. Fortunes fluctuated from one side to the other. South Africa after winning the toss had batted first and scored 281 runs for 5 wickets in 43 overs. The rain came down and stopped the play.

Then it was decided by Duck-Worth and Leuois Method that if New Zealand scores 298 runs in 43 overs they will win

In the last 10 minutes the match was very exciting.

South Africa bowled well and put their full efforts to restrict New Zealand. To achieve the target. Vittory and Grant Elliot were the last pair. They had to score 12 runs off the last over, suddenly Elliot skied a ball, but the catch was not caught due to a hard collide between Farhan Behardien and J.P Duminy. Behardien was aiming correctly and was about to catch the ball when J.P Duminy came running to catch the ball and both j dashed with each other and the ball fell to the ground. Vittory scored a boundary in the last over, 6 runs were needed for win and South Africa put all their efforts to restrict New Zealand from this. Now 2 balls were left and 5 runs were needed. Then Elliot scored a six on the 2nd last ball and achieved the target. It was a very spectacular finish and at last New Zealand won the match, one ball earlier.

(i) United we stand, divided we fall

It is true that it is easy to defeat and destroy a single person than a group of people, who are united. This fact has been proved through many examples in history and in families of a locality.

The story of the old man who taught this to his son by a number of sticks is famous. Today, it is the need of the day that in our country all the people whether they belong to different school of thought must be united for the cause of our nation and country

The enemies inside and outside the country are keen to find traitors and divided people.

Such unfaithful people are easily trapped through money and other timely benefits

In the end such a person himself suffers badly and is destroyed in the end. We should be united for a common cause for the sovereignty and property of out country

There are other benefits of being united. Out companion are there by our side when we are sick and when we are in difficulties. They help us and this make a healthy and good example.

A strong nation is that in which all the citizens are united and loyal to the country

(ii) Peaceful Karachi

Everyone dreams to have a calm and peaceful life in Karachi.

Here people of -different communities and parties are living and their interests are also different which often contradict with those of others. This gives rise to quarrels which increase in enmity and rivalry.

A peaceful Karachi is possible when people are united for a common cause of nation that is prosperity and development.

The traffic hazards in Karachi are also a hindrance in making the city peaceful. In every field of work and business, people are selfish and do not care for this. People think of their own gain at the cost of harm to others

The water shortage and power failures also excite people to protest against the authorities

The need is that every person must be sincere to his work and to the country and also should not damage public property

A peaceful Karachi is possible when all the institutions and people of different. Sectors of life and business remain peaceful and tolerant with others

We hope that a good time will come when this will be true

(iii) My ideal personality

The Person I respect most is my grandfather. Though he is old now, he has spent a good time and helped others in many ways, he has taught English Literature and languages. He was a lecturer in English, with sound knowledge. From the life of great poets and scholars he had chosen good deeds and put them into practice in his own life. He also teaches others the same and particularly good manners.

He is a kind heated and a very decent man. I respect him very much.
