Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison acted as a drinks boy in the practice game between the PM XI and Sri Lanka at the Manuka Oval in Canberra on Thursday.

Morrison interacted with kids and then, carried drinks for his side leaving everyone stumped. He garnered a lot of respect for his humility.

 

To make it better, the PM XI won the match by one wicket against the visitor.

Batting first, the islanders put on 130 for the loss of eight wickets in 20 overs. Harry Nielsen’s 50-ball 79 helped PM XI to victory with a ball to spare.
