  • After coming to Canada, he should only work for the same sports team which hired and made him get the athlete visa.
  • There is a need to wait for 4 months to get this athlete visa.

To get a Canada PR visa in the long run after some years, an athlete will have to stick to the country of Canada for some time. An athlete when he decides to immigrate to Canada should have received training for his sport and must be a graduate also. He should also be certified by a certain sports consort.

To receive a Canada PR visa, an athlete can also opt for the Express Entry. So, if an employer has given him employment, he can get the Canada PR visa. The points are given for the age of an athlete, for example, how young an athlete he is likely to be taken up for the Canada PR visa quite easily.

Cricket: the game that defies all rules

Cricket is one of the most interesting games in the world. It has two teams which have 11 players each. The batting team only has two players present on the 20-meter long pitch whereas the bowling team has 11 players present at a time trying to get the players of the opposing team dismissed.  When the 10 players of the batting team are dismissed due to one reason or another the teams alternate sides. So, the batting team starts to bowl and vice versa. Each team takes sides to bat. Whichever team bats first, tries to put a score on board which the other team will find it difficult to surpass. Since one team is batting at a time and the other team is bowling, the match stays interesting because the aim of the latter team is to get all the players of the batting team out/dismissed. The pitch where the batting team bats, has one wicket each placed on the opposite side. A wicket consists of three stumps.

The game of cricket consisted of 50 overs earlier but now it contains only 20 overs in its new format. So, instead of  50 over matches 20 over matches are common now.

There are multiple ways in which a player from the batting side can be dismissed.  One of these ways is that whenever the batter from the batting side hits a ball bowled at him and its caught midair by a fielder, the former is considered dismissed. Another way is when the ball is aimed at the stumps by the bowler and causes them to fall. Since 11 fielders from the bowling team are present on the ground at a time, it’s up to the captain to decide where to place them on the field. Their positioning determines the outcome of the game. It’s because catches of the hits by the batting team can be a success or failure depending on this placement.

There are also wicketkeepers in the game of cricket. They are from the bowling team and their aim is to sit behind the wicket and make the batter run out as and when the need arises. When the batter is too far from the pitch, he can be given a run out if the wicketkeeper is able to hit the stumps with the ball.

There are two batters, a striker who hits the ball and he moves to the other end of the pitch. In the mean, the batter on the end moves to the opposite end. This is how a run is scored in this game.

Australia is the most powerful cricket team. It has achieved many victories in this game which include taking home 5 of the world cups.

Football: a game which has inspired millions

Football is one of the most worshipped games in the world. It has become a culture. Football makes people go into a frenzy. This sport has more fans around the world rather than anything else.

Why has football become a religion?

The game of football has all the elements of excitement in it. There are times when this game inspires people to laugh, to cry. When the forward is about to kick the ball into the goalpost and when the goalkeeper is about to jump into the air trying to stop the goal, all are dramatic moments in the football game. The aim of any player is to kick the ball into the goal which is defended by the goalkeeper of the rival team. So, when the ball is able to reach the goal, able to bypass the goalkeeper, history is written. The goalkeepers have more power than the players in blocking the goal. It’s because they can use their entire bodies to stop the goal.

The players have their entire bodies to kick the ball except for their hands. The goals can be scored through the chest, legs, and the hands. However, sometimes the football matches don’t end with one team getting more goals. At that point in time, the teams are given extra shootouts to find the winner. There are also aberrations to this rule of replacement. Once has a player has been sent out of the game after being shown a red card by a referee he cants be replaced also. A player can be shown either a yellow card or a red card. The former refers to, a warning to the concerned player and the latter refers to leaving the field. So, for a player, being shown a red card by a referee is a dreaded affair.

Rules of the football game

Substitutions in the game: A team can replace a player with a substitute player in case the former suffers from an injury. However, a team can only make 3 replacements during a game. If more than these many numbers of replacements are needed, then the team can’t do so. For example, if three replacements have already been made, and a player gets injured, then the team will have to play without the injured player without getting any replacement for him.

Offside and onside: A player can’t be offside which is an important rule of this game. Offside is defined as the area around the goalpost of any team, which is restricted to the players of the opposite team. They cant be ahead on the field in front of the opponent’s team, the player when he is about to score a goal, and if happens, the opponent team gets a goal.

Kickoff: The teams get to choose which team will do the kickoff, or face the kickoff from the opposite team, based on who wins the initial toss. Kickoff is a kick done over a long distance.

Football: the most thrilling game of the world

Football has a following in almost every part of the world. Due to the thrill involved in this game,  it has developed a name for itself. There are two teams in this game consisting of 11 players. there are 10 players and one goalkeeper in this game. The aim of the goalkeeper is to resist the goal of the opposing team by preventing it from entering the goalpost.

In the US, the game of football is extremely popular with the Super Bowl event garnering the highest viewership at all times. In fact, every college in the US has a football team and therefore, 70,000 players in colleges play and compete in various football events.

So, many people root for their favorite team every year during the world cup of football. This world cup was an adrenaline rushing event watched by almost the whole world. The FIFA world cup which has so many spectators is held after every 4 years. Football brings together zealous fans from different countries who believe in this game and its players. These zealous fans are ardent supporters of teams.

The real passion of the game arrives from the fact, that you have to kick the ball into the goalpost of the opposing team. But the passion of the game lies in the fact, which the goals can be done by kicking the ball with the head or any other body part except using the hands to throw the ball. So, the headers in which the players are kicking the ball with their head are an amazing sight to watch.

A game of football lasts for 90 minutes and there is also a 15 minutes break given to players.

Penalty kicks are given along with extra time if no team is able to score more goals than the other. So, a clear victor can’t be established. These kicks are also given when the game isn’t able to complete the allotted time because the players have injuries. So, due to such injuries, the players take frequent breaks from the game necessitating extra time to complete the allotted time.

Strategy of the game

There are various kinds of players in the game of football.

Goalkeepers: The characteristic of such players is that they are very well built so as to prevent the ball from entering the goal.

Central defenders: The aim of these players is to prevent the players of the opposing team to kick the ball directly into the goal.

Forwards: These players have the power to change the game. They have excellent footwork and the last ones to kick the ball before it reaches the goal. So their success or failure can determine the success of a lot of players.

Midfield players: These players are also quite strategic to the game. They do the jobs of several players. So, they can pass the ball to the “forwards”. They also prevent the ball from being grabbed by the players of the opposing team through powerful legwork and act as “ball-winners”.
