In most of the Indian classroom contexts, mostly conventional and teacher centered methods are employed. Such approaches could be quite boring and do not generate interest for active participation of the learners which is quite essential to grasp the underlying concepts of grammar. Hence it is necessary to device an interactive and learner- oriented approach. This paper mainly focuses on teaching English grammar using video material to engineering students through cricket in a learner friendly way. In the 100 minutes class room activity, Tenses (Present Tenses: simple present, present continuous, and present perfect) are learned in an interactive method using a five over cricket match video. Further, it would also bring into context other skills of language such as Vocabulary, Speaking, Listening and Writing.
