The craze for the Ashes series transcends over any other cricketing rivalry in the world. The cricket’s oldest and fiercest rivalry has never disappointed its fans over the years. To witness the live Ashes action is restricted to the privileged few in the cricket world and one young boy from Australia earned that honour in truly an inspirational way.

You’ve got to admire thinking outside the box-young Max Waight collected his neighbours rubbish bins for a fee of $1 each time for 4 years to raise enough money to get to the UK to watch an Ashes test match.

A 12-year-old fan of the Australian cricket team saved up money for four years by lifting garbage cans so that he could watch the ongoing Ashes series in England. In 2015, Max had watched Australia win the World Cup on home soil and it was then that he and his mother hatched a plan about going to England in 2019 and watch the Australian team take on England in the Ashes.
Max’s father, Damien, promised him that if he could raise $1,500, he would match the amount and they could go to the UK. The entire process went on for four years and Max kept on putting out bins on weekends. And at last, he was able to raise the money asked by his father, who booked the tickets and took the entire family to England.
