A video of Australia’s dynamic opener, David Warner, returning home to his wife and three daughters is doing rounds on social media. It’s pertinent to mention that Warner had reunited with his family after 108 days.
The left-hander left home in August for Australia’s first international assignment in England after the halt in cricket owing to the pandemic. The hosts won the T20I series while the visitors emerged victorious in the ODI series.
From England, Warner travelled to the UAE to lead Sunrisers Hyderabad in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2020. SRH finished third on the points table and defeated the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Eliminator. Warner’s team was knocked out of the tournament by the Delhi Capitals in Qualifier 2.
The southpaw, once again, was amongst runs in the IPL. He amassed 548 runs at an average of 39.14 and a strike rate of 134 with 4 half-centuries. After finishing the IPL, Warner came to Australia where he had to undergo a mandatory 14-day quarantine period.
David Warner reunites with family after more than three months:
Cricket Australia’s social media handle shared a video of David Warner returning home after a long time away. His wife, Candice Warner, shot the video and he is seen meeting his daughters; Ivy Mae, Indi Rae, and Isla Rose.
As Warner enters the house, Ivy Mae,6, and Indi Rae,4, scamper towards their father and hug him at the door itself. Warner then hugs his youngest daughter, Isla Rose who is less than 2, and all 4 cuddles around each other for a group picture.
