A surprise phone call

Watch as Justin Langer, Coach of the Australian Cricket Team, surprises Archie with some life-changing news!

Archie's reaction

Archie couldn't believe it when he received a call from Australian coach Justin Langer. Via a phone call from the UAE, Archie learned of his inclusion in the extended squad for Third (Boxing Day) Test against India.

Aware that a place on the squad is no guarantee of making it into the final line-up, Archie has taken Langer's advice on board – practicing with backyard bowling drills nightly. Get ready for an update on his inaugural training session as his new team prepares for the First test at Adelaide Oval in early December.

"I've got some pretty special news for you. I've been watching a few highlights of your cricket…I'm really pleased to tell you you've been picked in the squad for the Boxing Day Test!"
