Warner got the ball rolling and then Rohit connected after facing difficulties to connect in a delayed start.

It seemed both the cricketers are making the most of their time with their family, for Warner his Tik-tok videos will tell you a lot about the same.
Rohit Sharma: I’ll retire before 38-39, don’t know about you
Rohit Sharma said players grow up saying cricket is life but family is also important. He added, by the time a cricketer retires, he is 38-39 and suggested that the India opener will retire before that. Although, he jokingly said Warner, ‘don’t know when will you finish’.
”Being with family is so important sometimes, it’s hard to explain when we’re out there playing that family is so important for us, because when we grow up in India it’s actually like that, when we grow up we say cricket is life, there is so much beyond that you cricket finishes when you’re what 38-39. I don’t know when will you finish but I will finish before that,” Rohit Sharma told David Warner.”
In the chat, Rohit Sharma also recalled his surprising hat-trick for Deccan Chargers while playing against his current franchise Mumbai Indians. It was on May 6, 2009, when Rohit Sharma picked up his first-ever hat-trick in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
