I feel really confused with the sequence of tenses sometimes. I am trying to explain where my problem is. Suppose, I have three different sentences which I want to express in two sentences.
1) I played cricket on Sunday.
2) I watched a movie before playing cricket.
3)I met my cousin on Sunday morning.
After joing first two sentences, we get :
"I had watched a movie before playing cricket on Sunday. "
Now for the third sentence which I want to join in the second line, which tense should I use?
Will it be past perfect again as it happend before another action?
"I had watched a movie before playing cricket on Sunday. I had met my cousin on Sunday morning. "
Even after 5 or 6 sentences if I want to say something which happend even beofre Sunday, which tense should I use?
Could someone please explain how I can solve my problem?
