Australian opener, David Warner has been excessively active on social media in the last couple of years, especially since the lockdown. Warner, who has over 5 million Instagram followers, has posted numerous videos since the lockdown began of himself along with his wife, Candice, and their daughters and have been having fun on social media, in particular on the ‘Tiktok’ application.
In the recent events, ICC announced the players of the decade in the three formats. Virat Kohli, Steve Smith, and Rashid Khan were named as the ICC Players of the Decade in ODI, Test, and T20I. Warner made it into the ODI and Test team of the decade.
Following the new trend, the Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper declared himself the Male Ticktoker of the Decade. He also tagged Indian leg-spinner, Yuzvendra Chahal in his post, as the RCB spinner also has been heavily involved in Tiktok videos.
“Thanks everyone for your support @yuzi_chahal23 I thought we would be joint winners #notofficial #funny #buttabomma” Warner captioned.

David Warner returns for the Sydney Test; Joe Burns dropped
Warner is set to make his comeback for Australia. The opener is added to the Australia squad for the third Test match in Sydney of the ongoing series against India. Along with Warner, young opener, Will Pucovski, and seamer Sean Abbott also return to the squad while Joe Burns is dropped.
Warner suffered a groin injury during the second ODI against India. Consequently, he missed the third ODI, the T20I series, and the two Test matches in Adelaide and Melbourne. With the hosts losing the second Test and their batting looking fragile against the Indian bowlers the southpaw will straightaway slot in the opening spot in the third Test which commences on 7th January.
With Steve Smith not scoring runs in the Test series so far, the 34-year-old’s inclusion will bolster the hosts’ batting line-up which has struggled so far; Australia put up scores of 191, 195, and 200.
It is to be seen whether Australia retains Matthew Wade, who played the role of the makeshift opener in the first two Tests or hands a debut to Will Pucovski, who is believed to have recovered from a concussion he suffered in the practice match against India A.
