The Aussie cricket team is on a tour to Zimbabwe for the tri-series including the host country and Pakistan. And, apart from winning games and breaking world records, the Australian team is also winning hearts on social media after their beautiful gesture towards the underprivileged kids in Zimbabwe.
Aaron Finch and his Australian team went to Hatcliffe, located 20 kilometers north of Harare and spent time with kids. The school was operated by the charity of "Grassroots Cricket". Aussies visited there as part of Cricket Australia's charity initiative Cricket Cares.
"It’s incredibly humbling, the simplicity of the way these guys live in some really tough circumstances," Australia head coach Justin Langer said. "But to see the smiles on their faces, to see their love of cricket has been a brilliant opportunity and we’ve loved every minute of it."
As quoted by Cricket Australia's official website, all-rounder Marcus Stoinis expressed his feelings after spending the quality time with him. He also played football with the kids.
"Just to come out here and have the opportunity to do this sort of stuff, and until you do it you don’t realize how fortunate you are," Stoinis said.
"It puts things in perspective, and how happy these kids are, beautiful young kids just enjoying themselves. There’s not many supplies or anything but they’re still happy."
