Australia impressed the cricketing world on Sunday by adding 7-year-old leg spinner Archie Schiller to their squad as the 15th member of the team.

Schiller, who suffers from a congenital heart problem and has had nine other operations was selected ahead of the Boxing Day Test against India, starting December 26 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG). He has been selected as the 15th member of the squad, a move which was made possible by the Make-a-Wish Australia Foundation.

The news of Schiller’s selection was confirmed by Aussie skipper Tim Paine at BUPA Family Day at Yarra Park. The kid was informed about is inclusion via the phone call from Australian coach Justin Langer.

In addition to that, Schiller will be the vice-captain alongside Tim Paine in the third Test. Earlier this month, he had a chance to practice with the Australian team just ahead of the 1st Test of India vs Australia in Adelaide.

When Schiller was just three months old, it was discovered that he had faulty heart valves. He has already undergone numerous heart surgeries and due to his condition, he is not allowed to play freely and regularly with friends. But Archie loves to play cricket whenever possible and a call for the Australian cricket team is dream come true for the youngster.

The leggie has told Justin Langer, that he would get Virat Kohli out and would also like to captain the Australian cricket side.

The four-match Test series between India and Australia is locked at 1-1.
