Seven-year-old Archie Schiller leads handshakes after India defeat Australia in the Boxing Day Test

Posted On / /

Seven-year-old Archie Schiller led the Australian team for the handshakes after India defeated the hosts by 137 runs in the Boxing Day Test at MCG on Sunday.

Jasprit Bumrah starred with the ball picking a nine-wicket haul in the match as India registered their 150th Test win and became only the fifth team to do so.

Virat Kohli-led Team India has now taken an unassailable 2-1 lead in the ongoing four-match series. But just watching the young leg-spinner must have been an extremely adorable sight for the fans and especially for the Schiller family.

Archie had gone through his third heart surgery in 2017 but this year he has moved on from the troubles of his congenital heart disease and was appointed Australia’s co-captain for the third Test match against India.

Here is the video:

Meanwhile, India will be looking to build on the momentum and will leave no stone unturned to make it 3-1 at the SCG. The fourth and final Test starts on Thursday.
