Coronavirus pandemic has put a break on the cricketing events around the world. Amid lockdown, most players are spending quality time with their family members. But Australia’s swashbuckling opener David Warner is utilising his self-quarantine time by making TikTok videos for his fans.
Warner, continuing with the trend of sharing daily dosage of funny videos, added one more to his kitty on Saturday. David teamed up with his family members – wife Candice and two daughters – and tried to perform a ‘Bhangra’ on a fusion song. While Warner has, in the past, shared several videos of him and his family members dancing, trying a traditional Indian dance form was something new to all of them and it showed in their performance which was all over the place.
“TikTok baby woohoo #bhangra #family @CandyFalzon,” the Aussie star captioned his video on Twitter.

Warner was set to lead the SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) in Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020, but that has been suspended indefinitely because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
Also, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), in order to combat any eventuality, has started cost-cutting measures.
“There has been no pay cut or lay-off as of now. But we have cut cost on other fronts like travel, hospitality, etc,” Arun Dhumal, the treasurer of BCCI, told The New Indian Express.
Even the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly a few days back admitted that the board will lose around Rs 4000 crores if IPL 2020 can’t see the light of the day. “We will have to examine our financial situation, see how much money we have and take a call. Not hosting the IPL will cause losses to the tune of Rs. 4,000 crore which is huge,” Ganguly told Mid-Day.
