WATCH- When Andrew Symonds Allowed Two Kids To Field In A Match: A few years ago the Australian Team was the best in the world and at that time no other team had the potential like Kangaroos. It was a very difficult task to defeat that time Australian Team. However, now every one of that time has retired from international cricket. Meanwhile, Ricky Pointing was the captain of that time team and his leading way was much different from other captains in the world.
One of the Australian players Andrew Symonds was one who had great capabilities of hitting the ball hard. He took retirement from International cricket way back in 2012. Symonds in his span of cricket career had played 198 ODIs, 26 Tests and 14 T20s for Australia team.
A few years ago, ahead of every Australian summer, we used to witness an all-star team taking on an Australian XI. The All-star XI would usually comprise of some retired cricketers whereas the Australian XI would consist of current players.
In November 2008, when two teams meet for the exhibition match at Gabba, there was a wonderful moment when Aussie allrounder Andrew Symonds allowed two young kids to take his spot on the field. Both the kids were looking very nervous to get into the ground.
The crowd make the moment even more memorable by cheering loudly for both the kids. Here we are sharing the video of the incident. Even though it was just an exhibition game, it was a very important match for Symonds as he was looking to get into some form ahead of the busy summer.
