Australia’s premier all-format opener, David Warner, has been proactive on various social media platforms to beat the boredom surrounding the global lockdown period, observed due to COVID-19.
Warner, with wife Candice, left one and all in splits with their ‘Switch’ Challenge. Also, Warner was seen dancing with his daughters on Bollywood hit numbers.
During a recent interaction with Riddhima Pathak, Warner’s daughters, Ivy and Indi asked for a selfie with Virat Kohli.
Warner’s daughters already registered their admiration for Kohli by naming him their favourite Indian cricketer on Sony Ten Pit Stop Live Chat.
We cannot even 🥺🥺😍😍

Under normal circumstances, Warner was slated to take part in the thirteenth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The tournament is now suspended indefinitely amid COVID-19 outbreak.
Warner staged his comeback from a 1-year ban using the 2019 edition of the Indian Premier League, where he ended up with the Orange Cap.
Warner and Englishman Jonny Bairstow formed a destructive opening partnership for Sunrisers Hyderabad, doing the bulk of the scoring.
However, their international commitments forced them to leave the tournament during the playoffs. Their absence left a huge void in their batting and as a result, SRH was knocked out of the tournament.
Warner helped SRH win the 2016 edition of IPL, where he amassed 858 runs in a single season, most by any foreign batsman. He recently termed winning the IPL title for the first time in 2016 as his favourite IPL moment.
Also, Warner recently conversed with Bhuvneshwar Kumar, talking about the hypothetical situation of India facing Australia in the finals of T20 World Cup. To which the latter trolled the former hilariously with a witty reply.
