Australia opening batsman David Warner has been quite active on social media ever since cricket got hindered due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
The southpaw recently came up with a much-awaited video on Indian music and shook a leg on Mahesh Babu’s song, Mind Block. The South megastar turned 45 on Sunday. Warner wished the Telugu actor in his post and also tagged him.
Warner was joined by his wife, Candice, in the video. His daughters were also seen dancing in the background as the couple showcased their incredible dance moves.
Taking to Instagram, Warner wrote: “Happy birthday @urstrulymahesh legend #mindblock #dance”.
The video already has over 760,000 likes.
33-year-old Warner will be seen donning the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) jersey in IPL 2020. The Aussie star, who led the Hyderabad-based franchise to their maiden IPL title in 2016, will be hoping to clinch another trophy this year.
David Warner likely to miss the initial phase of IPL 2020
Warner lost the SRH captaincy when he missed IPL 2018 following his involvement in the infamous ball-tampering saga. However, the team owners have once again shown trust in Warner by naming him the skipper for upcoming IPL. The cash-rich tournament, amid COVID-19 pandemic, is set to begin from September 19 in the UAE.
Warner, who was last seen in action in March, is likely to miss SRH’s training camp and the first few matches due to Australia’s international fixtures. The Australian team is scheduled to tour England for a limited-overs series, which will end on September 16. All players then will have to be in quarantine for seven days before they join their respective franchises.
In Warner’s absence in the initial phase of the tournament, Kane Williamson or Bhuvneshwar Kumar are expected to fulfil the skipper’s role.
One of the most successful batsmen in the history of IPL, Warner, has amassed 4706 runs in 126 matches at a phenomenal average of 43.17. He also has three Orange Caps and four IPL centuries to his name.
