7-yr-old boy in Aussie team for third test against India

The Boxing Day Test Match between Australia and India will be special. To make it even more special, Australia has included a 7-year old boy Archie Schiller in the team to face Virat Army

Archie Schiller, a seven-year-old kid who is battling congenital heart disease, has been named Australia’s co-captain for the third Test against India, which will commence on December 26. Archie’s wish was fulfilled by Cricket Australia under Make-A-Wish Australia campaign.

Archie’s inclusion was made public earlier this month. The kid got the news of his selection via a phone call from Aussie head coach Justin Langer. “He (Archie) has been through some tough times, spent a lot of time in a hospital bed.. So anyway that we can help to put a smile on his face, it’s the very least we can do for him,” said Langer.

It’s not just inclusion, young Archie has been practicing too with the Aussie team
