The warm-up game between Sri Lanka and Prime Minister’s XI in Canberra saw a beautiful and a very sporting incident. Australia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison left everyone pleasantly surprised by acting as a drinks boy in the practice game at the Manuka Oval on Thursday. Morrison interacted with kids and then carried drinks for his side, much to everyone’s surprise.

Just after Daniel Fallins removed Dasun Shanaka, Scott Morrison charged onto the ground carrying the drinks. The Australian players were all smiles after seeing the drinks boy. And as soon as the incident took place, its pictures understandably went viral on social media. Scott Morrison garnered a lot of respect for his humility.

Ace commentator Harsha Bhogle also joined the bandwagon. Just like almost everyone, Bhogle was also stumped by Scott Morrison’s beautiful gesture. The veteran commentator took to Twitter to react to the incident. He posted a picture of the incident and wrote: “How cool that the Prime Minister @ScottMorrisonMP comes out with the drinks at the Prime Minister’s XI game in Canberra”

Hosts beat Sri Lanka in a thriller

Talking about the game, Prime Minister’s XI beat Sri Lanka by 1 wicket in the thrilling game in Canberra. Fresh off the 3-0 win over Pakistan, Sri Lanka had a great opportunity to prepare for the upcoming three-match T20I series against Australia. However, they failed to impress with the bat. Batting first, the visitors only managed a modest total of 131. Oshada Fernando top-scored with 38 off 25 including three fours and two sixes.

Djali Bloomfield and Daniel Christian claimed two wickets each for Prime Minister’s XI. Sri Lanka started well with the ball and dismissed Jordan Silk, Chris Lynn and Jason Sangha cheaply. However, they could not find a way past Harry Nielsen and it cost them big time in the end. Nielsen went on to slam 79 and was dismissed in the final over of the match.
After Nielsen’s dismissal, the hosts needed 9 from the final 5 balls with just one wicket in hand. But Fawad Ahmed kept his cool and made sure to take his side home with a ball remaining.  Australia will take on Sri Lanka and then Pakistan in the back-to-back T20I series with the first game taking place on October 27 in Adelaide.
