The ongoing Women's Ashes (one-off Test) between England and Australia produced two thrilling days of cricket but rain played spoilsport on Day 3 at Manuka Oval. As one would expect, kids inside the stadium were not really happy with the fact that there were unable to witness a game of cricket and their weekend was not certainly going the way they would have hoped for.

But well, the youngsters nowadays don't like for things to improve on its own. Instead, they take matters in their own hands to find a solution. And on Saturday, the young Australian children found a very unique way to entertain themselves and get rid of boredom.

A few boys and girls, with a tennis ball, started to play cricket in the stands. However, with no bat, they were actually using water bottles to play cricket.

This is when former Aussie cricketer turned commentator Mel Jones entered the scene. After presumably getting impressed with the passion and dedication being shown by the kids, the 49-year-old rewarded them with a brand new Kookaburra bat, much to the delight of everyone.

Well, there was no need of water bottles post that as the youngsters then got to hit shots with a proper bat, resulting in a much more entertaining and grueling game of cricket onwards.

Watch the video here:

It was indeed a heartwarming gesture by Mel Jones, whose small act of kindness certainly made the day of kids who could play a great game at Manuka Oval, no matter if the scheduled game between England and Australia was suspended for the day. By stumps, Australia Women led by 52 runs with 8 wickets in hand.
