David Warner takes a dig at RCB and Virat Kohli for not winning an IPL title

Posted On

Amid lockdown, the Indian Premier League (IPL) franchises are trying different ways to engage with their supporters by regularly organizing the chat sessions of their favourite cricketers. In the process, 2016 IPL champion Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) invited the skipper David Warner to their Instagram live session.


The Hyderabad-based franchise also requested opener, Jonny Bairstow, to participate in the chat session. During the interaction, both Warner and Bairstow talked on various topics including one where the swashbuckling player took a dig at Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB)’s captain Virat Kohli.

When Warner was quizzed to define the difference between SRH and other IPL teams, the ‘Pocket Dynamite’ stated that his team has an IPL trophy while Bangalore doesn’t. The Aussie opener also added that he hopes that Kohli is watching this.


“Bangalore don’t have an IPL Trophy. I hope Virat (Kohli) is watching,” said Warner.

When asked about to reveal a secret that no one knows, Warner came up with an interesting reply regarding what he’s going to do after cricket. The southpaw expressed his desire to work in Bollywood.

“I think after cricket I am looking out for a Bollywood career. Not sure it is going to work out, but I don’t mind giving it a try. But certainly, not as a dancer, that’s for sure,” the 33-year-old added.


Just a few days ago, Warner shared two videos on his official Instagram handle where he was seen showing his dance moves along with his daughters Ivy Mae and Indi Rae. Warner was seen showing steps on a famous Bollywood dance number.

The Queensland cricketer has so far played 126 games in IPL and has amassed 4,706 runs with an impressive strike-rate of 142.39. Warner’s tally of runs is the fourth-highest figure in the cash-rich league and first amongst overseas players. The left-handed batsman has also smashed 44 half-centuries and 4 hundreds in the lucrative league.
