"People are practising cricket this sunday at 9 am at Student Recreation Complex ground. Anybody who is interested in practising the game before the tournament next week are invited to join the practise match. This will be a good training session to learn the game for people who haven't played before!".



Would you please verify if the following corrections are OK? In addition, are there any other grammatical mistakes? Can I use 'practice' , as a verb or noun, instead of 'practise'?

In general, the rule says that when you are considering subject-verb agreement you should ignore prepositional phrases. For example: "The age of the novels is surprising." "of the novels" is a prepositional phrase. "The age" is singular subject so the verb will be singular "is". There is an exception to that rule where we should not ignore the preposition phrases. For example, "This is one of the novels that have made a mark in my life." The word "that" is the relative pronoun and the subject of the relative clause. The phrase "that have make a mark in my live" is called relative clause. "That" takes its number from a plural noun. Since the noun in the last sentence is "novels" and it is plural so the verb will be plural "have".
