IELTS Speaking Topic Part 2: Favorite Player

Favorite Player
Who is your favorite player?
What sport does he or she play?
Why do you regard him or her as your favorite player?

My favorite player is Shahid Afridi. He is a very popular player in my country and many people around the world love and admire him. He is cricketer and I think he has been playing cricket for the last 14 years. He started playing cricket at a very young age and in the initial years of his career became very popular and was able to make place in the Pakistan cricket team.
His playing style is completely different than those of other players. Whenever he is on the crease one can expect fun and sixes. That is the reason he is often referred to as boom boom Afridi. Recently he has not been performing well with the bat, but his bowling is still outstanding and he is the leading wicket taker in every match he plays.
I had heard about the player a lot but I did not like him that much. I watched a match and everything changed. It was a cricket match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka and he scored a century in only 40 balls. I was really impressed by his batting style. He is not only a good batsman, but also a very good bowler. Everyone around him regards him as one of the best all-rounders in the world. He has helped the Pakistani team win a lot of matches and he is considered to be an asset for the cricket game. Now I like him so much that whenever he come to bat, my heart starts to beat very hardly and cannot remain on the chair and I start walking to lessen my tension.
