David Warner is one of the many cricketers who has been quite active on social media these days. The onset of the coronavirus, which originated from the Wuhan city of China late last year, has put the entire world under a lockdown.

And, so with no cricket taking place, cricketers are using this time to bond with their fellow mates via Instagram live. And, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has been at the forefront. The swashbuckling opener recently chatted with his English rival and fellow opener at the Sunrisers Hyderabad Jonny Bairstow.
The duo talked about a plethora of stuff related to cricket and their careers including the Indian Premier League. The southpaw, during the conversation, went on to take a dig at Virat Kohli and the Royal Challengers Bangalore for not winning the coveted title in the history of the cash-rich league.
“Bangalore don’t have an IPL Trophy. I hope Virat (Kohli) is watching,” David Warner said.

The swashbuckling Australian opener achieved the coveted feat during the 2016 edition of the tournament and ironically it came against Virat Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore in a high-voltage encounter.
During that season, both the captains- Virat and Warner- had stupendous seasons with the bat. While Virat broke almost every record in the book, shellacking a barely believable 973 runs with the help of four hundred, David Warner was equally disdainful throughout the season, emerging as the second-highest run-getter with 848 runs.
But in the end, it was David Warner, who had the last laugh, as Royal Challengers Bangalore, despite getting off to a whirlwind start, courtesy a 114-run-stand between Virat Kohli and Chris Gayle, fell short by eight runs after Sunrisers Hyderabad had set them 209 for victory.
Since then, it has all been downhill for the Challengers as they have finished with the wooden spoon in two of the past three seasons.
Meanwhile, the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League has been canceled for an indefinite period of time and given the current situation, it looks unlikely that Virat and co will get a chance to redeem themselves anytime soon.
