Cricket News ‘I Am Like Virat Kohli’ – David Warner’s Daughter Wows The Internet With Her Cricket

first_imgNew Delhi: Virat Kohli is one of the greatest batsman in the modern ear. His record across all formats makes him the ideal role model for upcoming cricketers. On the other hand, David Warner is currently the best Twenty20 player in the planet and his recent form in the series against Sri Lanka and Pakistan have only cemented his reputation as the best in the business. In a sequence of three videos uploaded on David Warner and his wife Candice, the video shows their daughter Ivy Mae playing cricket in their home garden.Before lining up to face the delivery, Ivy Mae says that she is like Virat Kohli and proceeds to hit a cross-batted swat that would have made even Kohli proud. Warner had uploaded the first video on his Instagram account and he asked his wife to caption his daughter playing a shot and being caught by Candice. On his wife’s Twitter, Candice uploaded two videos. The first was a reference to Kohli where she captioned, “This little girl has spent too much time in India. Wants to be @imVkohli.” In the second video, she wrote, “Just like her daddy @davidwarner31.” For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Warner, who along with Smith was banned from international cricket for one year due to the ball-tampering scandal, has enjoyed a magnificent run in ODIs and Twenty20s but not so much in Tests. In the Ashes contest, he managed just 95 runs in the five Tests but in Twenty20 Internationals, he has been in fine form. During the series against Sri Lanka, Warner notched up scores of 100*,60* and 57* as Australia whitewashed Sri Lanka 3-0. The century was his first in Twenty20 Internationals, a bit odd considering he had made a mark in international cricket in 2009 against South Africa. His 217 runs in the series was redemption. However, if one looks at the broader picture, Warner’s form in Twenty20s has been remarkable. If one looks at the last 18 Twenty20 matches, which includes the Sri Lanka series and the 2019 IPL, his streak has been remarkable. Warner has had scores of 61*, 63, 19, 95, 69, 100*, 10, 15, 70*, 51, 50, 67, 57, 37, 81, 100*, 60*, 57*. In 18 matches, he has 10 fifties and two centuries with 1062 runs at an average of 88.5. In 10 matches, his lowest score is 37 and it contains eight fifties and a century.Also Read | David Warner’s Magnificent Twenty20s Form Is A Statistician’s DelightWarner was the Orange Cap holder in the 2019 Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad, smashing 692 runs at an average of close to 70 in 12 games.last_img read more
