The practice game between the Prime Minister’s XI and Sri Lanka at the Manuka Oval witnessed one of the rarest occasions in a cricket field. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison performed the duties of a water boy in the warm-up match in Canberra.
Morrison was spotted carrying drinks for the Prime Minister’s XI and photographs of him busy doing the job soon went viral over the internet. His gesture garnered a lot of praise on social media, with people respecting his humbleness.
The outcome of the match was also pleasant for Morrison since Prime Minister’s XI defeated the visiting Sir Lanka team by one wicket in an enthralling wicket. The islanders could manage just 130 runs in their 20 overs and the home side chased down the target on the penultimate delivery of the match.
