After winning the AUS vs PAK 2nd Test at MCG, Mitchell Starc fulfilled a promise to a young fan and delightedly handed over his cricket shoes, making the kid’s day.

Australia secured a 2-0 lead in the three-match Test series by triumphing over Pakistan at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Friday, 29th December. Pat Cummins, the skipper, showcased his prowess with a remarkable 10-wicket haul, his second in Test cricket, steering the team to a 79-run victory led by Shan Masood’s Men in Green. The bowling trio of Cummins, Nathan Lyon, and Mitchell Starc, along with Josh Hazlewood, played pivotal roles in clinching the series.

A heartwarming moment emerged after the match when Mitchell Starc fulfilled a promise made to a young fan during lunchtime. Starc pledged his cricket shoes to the fan if Australia managed to secure nine wickets by day’s end. True to his word, following their successful hunt for wickets, Starc handed over his prized footwear, creating a delightful memory captured in a video shared by Cricket Australia on social media.

The upcoming Sydney Cricket Ground Test, scheduled from January 3rd to 7th, marks the final match of the three-part series. Notably, it also signifies the retirement of Australian opener David Warner from Test cricket, concluding his illustrious career in the longest format of the game.
