Australian star batsman David Warner has come forward for the first time and gave his take on the prohibition of Tiktok from India. In response to the India-China tiff at the border, the Indian government made a massive decision of banning 59 Chinese apps from India, one of which includes Tiktok.
David Warner has been one of the most-trending cricketers in India amid cricket suspension, having remained thoroughly active by making dance and comical videos via Tiktok. The little dynamite’s wife, along with his three kids that make up his family, have also joined him in doing the same. The 33-year old has even coaxed cricketers like Virat Kohli and Steve Smith, who indicated they might also consider joining the application.
On the other hand, former fellow teammate hilariously commented that Warner has officially lost it. Amid even his controversial disciplinary record, Warner has earned 5 million followers through his antics in Tiktok. Apart from that, the New South Wales is also one of the most-loved overseas cricketers in India due to his explosive and authoritative batting in IPL.
Warner has bagged the Orange Cap thrice in the history of the tournament, having also bagged its last edition after making a comeback to top-level cricket in nearly a year. He would have captained the Sunrisers Hyderabad in 2020 if not for postponement in the wake of COVID-19 pandemic. The southpaw guided the franchise to the summit in 2016.
David Warner’s response to a fan over Instagram:
A fan commented on Warner’s new Tiktok video, reminding that Tiktok stands suspended in India moving forward. The former Australian vice-captain stated that he understands the prohibition and that the Indian citizens have to respect the same.
Meanwhile, the Chinese Government has highly condemned the move since they would have to incur massive losses due to the same. The Indian government issued a statement in this regard as: “This move will safeguard the interests of crores of Indian mobile and internet users. This decision is a targeted move to ensure safety and sovereignty of Indian cyberspace.”
“They are indeed but I can’t do anything about it being banned from India. That’s the government’s decision and people in India have to respect that,” David Warned said.
