WATCH: The 7 Year Old Archie Schiller recieves his Baggy Green Cap

The Australian Cricket Team made a Heartwarming gesture to include the 7-year-old Archie Schiller in the Australian squad and today he was handed over the famous Baggy Green Cap before the start of the days play. He was also named the honorary captain of the Australian Team and accompanied Tim Paine to the Toss.

Schiller, a cricket-crazy youngster celebrated his seventh birthday on Saturday – the same day that Paine announced that he will be his co-captain for the Boxing Day Test. Schiller has already undergone multiple surgeries due to a heart condition.

The Cricket Australia Official Social Media account released a video in which he is presented the baggy green cap. When Schiller was asked about the way Australia should approach this match,he calmly replied “Hit sixes and get wickets,”

Archie was diagnosed with a faulty heart valve when he was just 3 months old which led to an irregular beating of the heart. This could be life-threatening if his condition is not monitored or kept in check all the time. He has already undergone thirteen surgeries.

Archie is a leg-spinner and big fan of Shane Warne. He was given the biggest surprise of his life when he was informed that he was added to the Australian squad just before the First Test in Adelaide. He also trained with all other Australian Players.
