In the clip, the cricketer is seen playing a defensive shot

Ahead of the ODI series against India, Australia star batter David Warner was seen having a good time in Mumbai. The cricketer, who is quite active on Instagram, often impresses his Indian fans with his social media posts. Mr. Warner has always been a fan of India and his Instagram is full of posts showcasing his love for the country. This time, he shared a video wherein he is seen playing gully cricket with locals and fans in Mumbai, where the first ODI is scheduled to take place.

The clip shows David Warner, dressed in a t-shirt, shorts, and sneakers, getting ready to bat as the bowler is about to release the ball. He then plays a defensive shot to a delivery bowled at him. 

 “Found a quiet street to have a hit,” he captioned the video.

Watch the video here:

The video has gone viral, impressing Indians who loved his humility and his passion for cricket. 

One user wrote, ”Did u apply for Indian citizenship? Bcz your love about India is incredible..love u sir.” Another wrote, ”Such a humble man.” A third added, ”David Warner be like – gully cricket is more difficult than international cricket.”

Notably, the left-handed batter was ruled out of the final two Tests against India in the recently-concluded Border Gavaskar Trophy due to a hairline fracture on his left elbow. He flew back to Australia for treatment and is now back in India after recovering from his injury. 

He had earlier shared a selfie of himself sitting in a car while waiting in the Mumbai traffic. ”Out and about,” the Australian cricketer captioned the image which also shows a kaali-peeli taxi driver giving thumbs up in the vehicle next to him.
