Candice Warner, wife of Australia star David Warner, has revealed that her middle child is a big Virat Kohli fan. The Warners are proud parents of three girls – Ivy Mae, Indi Rae and Isla Rose who was born last year when the batsman was in England for the World Cup.
Candice Warner was speaking to Triple M Sydney radio station when she was asked whether the Warner family plays backyard cricket. In reply, Mrs Warner said that they do play cricket in their backyard before revealing that their middle child is a huge Virat Kohli fan.
“We do play a little bit of backyard cricket. The funny thing is my girls, sometimes they wanna be dad, sometimes they wanna be Finchy (Aaron Finch) but my middle child, she wants to be Virat Kohli. And I am not even joking,” said Candice Warner.

Meanwhile, Virat Kohli and David Warner will be up against each other soon during the upcoming series between India and Australia. India are in Australia for three ODIs, three T20Is and four Tests. Earlier this month, Warner and Kohli had locked horns in IPL 2020.
It was Warner’s team SunRisers Hyderabad that ended Kohli-led Royal Challengers Bangalore’s journey in the competition by winning the Eliminator. On the other hand, SRH had bowed out of the competition after losing Qualifier two to Delhi Capitals. Eventually, Mumbai Indians won the title.
Meanwhile, Kohli won’t be able to stay in Australia for the entire series. He will return home after the first Test to be with his wife as the couple await the birth of their first child. The BCCI has already granted paternity leave to the India captain.
