Who would have thought that David Warner would fly a kite at the Wankhede Stadium in front of thousands of fans on the eve of Makar Sankranti. Well, the Australia opener came agonizingly close to doing it on Tuesday although not because he wanted to as the first ODI between India and Australia was briefly interrupted when a kite landed on the field at the Wankhede Stadium.
The incident took place in the 49th over of India’s innings. As the innings was about to come to an end, a kite landed on the field, causing a brief delay before the end of India’s innings. And as soon as the kite landed on the field, David Warner picked it up and handed it to the umpire. The Australia batting star was also seen pointing at the sky as it looked like the thread of the kite got entangled in one of the Spidercam wires.
Ans after the match ended, David Warner made sure to post a picture of the incident on his Instagram account only to be trolled by his Sunrisers Hyderabad teammate Rashid Khan. Posting the picture, Warner asked his followers to caption it.
And it is safe to say that Rashid Khan stole the show with his caption as the Afghanistan star hilariously wrote: “There is another one coming in to us make sure you catch that 🤔🤔🤔 ? 😂😂😂😂”
Warner stars in impressive win:
David Warner starred with the bat as Australia thrashed India by ten wickets in Mumbai to take the lead in the three-match series. The left-handed batsman and his opening partner Aaron Finch scored centuries as Australia chased down 256 inside 38 overs without losing any wicket. Warner was the Man of the Match for his unbeaten 128-run knock while Finch remained unbeaten on 110.
Earlier in the match, India were all out for just 255 despite a 121-run stand between Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul for the second wicket. The Men in Blue suffered a middle-order collapse and were all out for 255 in 49.1 overs.
