Cricket South Africa director and former captain Graeme Smith had a special guest in one of his recent virtual press conferences. In a pleasant interruption, Smith’s son walked in during his talk over the ongoing Proteas’ tour of Pakistan and asked for his shoelaces to be tied.

Speaking on the ongoing bilateral women’s series between Pakistan women and South African women, the former opener was suddenly interrupted by his boy, who was seen holding a blue coloured toy bat.

Smith first apologised to the viewers for the unexpected interruption but when his son insisted, the 39-year old said, “Just tying his shoelace. Dad duty, always.” The video has won hearts online.

The South Africa Women have won the second ODI and the three-match series against Pakistan by 13 runs. They are set to play three-match T20I series post the third ODI on Tuesday.
