I rather like to take part in sports than to watch it. But Yeah, I enjoy watching cricket match when we cheerlead for our team and hoot and shout wishing them all the best and saying Yes you can do it. Our school often helds matches and its really pleasing seeing little kids shouting for us and gesturing us best of luck with their thumbs up. Besides this, the person who compares the match also appreciates us and when that person Specifically takes our name telling that how good they have been playing, its a pleasure to hear that :) I know im going off the topic so i will end up here

Hi md. nayem islam. The most important things when developing your English speaking skill is practice. Practice makes perfect! If you don't have anybody to speak English with, try talking to a mirror!

Take 10 minutes every evening before you sleep, tell your mirror about your day (what did you do? where did you go? who did you meet?) or talk about your plans for the next day.  Just 10 minutes every evening, will help your fluency.  For some new ideas for things to talk about check out the exam speaking section

Good luck.
