(Video) Alice Monaghan’s graduation party at Lord’s is hilariously life-affirming

Alice Monaghan, the London Spirit all-rounder, was unable to make her university graduation party because she was due at Lord’s for the women’s Hundred clash against the Northern Superchargers. After her side secured a comfortable victory, Monaghan’s teammates hosted their own festivities on the famous old balconies.

The 21-year-old noticed the camera was on her, proceeding to throw her mortarboard into the air and attempting – somewhat in vain – to down her drink. The scene restores one’s faith in humanity and reiterates that, if nothing else, the Hundred is a good opportunity to have some fun.
