Hi GV, great job! It is clear that you are already very comfortable and confident at speaking English. I love cricket too, though I much prefer playing it than watching it. Best of luck with your ambition to become a Solution Architect. A lot of studying and hard work is needed for that job, I imagine?

When you said "I like to watch the cricket", in English you do not need the determiner "the" when referring to sports. Instead you would just say "I like to watch cricket" or "I like to watch football"

When you said the phrase " for out of activity purpose" this phrase did not make too much sense. I think the phrase you are looking for is "Extra-curricular activities" or just simply "activities I do outside of work"

[en-thoo-zee-az-uh m] - enthusiasm - I feel you could do with improving your pronunciation of this word. So my advice would be to listen to me saying it a few times then practice again.

It was really hard to hear you because the recording was very faint and there was a loud banging in the background!  Can you re-record?
