My favourite sportsperson is Virat Kohli. I watch all his matches. I often play with my friends Rahul, Rohan, Kunal, Varun, Shantanu and many others during the lunch break.

2) How Can You Use Common Nouns to Write About Your Favourite Sports?

The names of the sports that you will mention are common nouns. The names of things that you will require to play the game are also common nouns.


The things that are needed to play cricket are a cricket bat, a ball, stumps, a pair of gloves, a helmet, batting leg guards, etc. I like to play cricket, badminton, chess, and carrom. During weekends, I love to play chess and carrom with my brother and my father.
