WATCH: 7-year-old Archie Schiller hones his cricketing skills with Nathan Lyon

Australia lost the Boxing Day Test against India at Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) by 137 runs on Sunday and gave an unassailable 2-1 lead to their opponents.

After Virat Kohli & Co. clubbed 443 in their first innings, the Aussies found themselves in a rabbit hole from which they couldn’t pull themselves out. However, maybe not with their performance, but they managed to win hearts after they roped in Archie Schiller.

The 7-year-old Schiller was added to the 13-man Australian squad for the third Test and was appointed as the Co-Captain of the team.

He was granted his dream of leading the national side by Cricket Australia (CA) and Make-A-Wish Foundation.

Recently, Schiller was seen practicing with Nathan Lyon when rain delayed the start of play on the fifth day in Melbourne. Lyon was seen giving the youngster a catching practice.

To everyone’s surprise, Schiller took the catch without much difficulty with a proper technique that would even make the best of fielders proud.

Here’s the video:
