Often labelled as one of the most-feared opening batsmen, David Warner's ability to beat the leather off the cricket ball at will has allowed him to become a vital cog in the Australian batting line-up. Whether it's about pulling a fiery fast bowler over the cow corner for a six or hitting a spinner inside out for a boundary, Warner is as efficient as they come in international cricket.
Despite a huge fanbase and an illustrious career, the left-handed batsman found himself at the lowest of the ebbs after he was found guilty and was subsequently suspended in the infamous 2018 ball-tampering scandal.
Touted as the mastermind behind Australia's ball-tampering antics, while Warner did lose his reputation and, in turn, the love of fans, the Aussie cricketer has successfully managed to turn the tide against him in recent months.February 10, 2020
On the back of an influential 2019 which was filled with key performances, Warner didn't just win the fans back but also bagged his third Allan Border medal earlier this February.
Reclaiming the lost glory, there has been no turning back for Warner whose popularity has reached a whole new level, despite the suspension of sporting events due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.View this post on InstagramItâs tiktok time #buttabomma get out of your comfort zone people lol @candywarner1A post shared by (@davidwarner31)
With everyone forced to stay indoors, while a lot of sports icons continue to keep in touch with fans through social media, the Australian opener is not only making the most of his idle time at home, but has also enlarged his fanbase, especially in India.
Whether it's about dancing on Katrina Kaif's popular track 'Sheila Ki Jawani' or paying tribute to Telugu actor Allu Arjun with crazy dance moves, Warner, his wife Candice and their daughters have become the so-called 'Family No. 1' for Indian fans.View this post on InstagramWho wins the race?? @candywarner1 one for the kids!!
