Even though getting to the pitch in the current lock down from the novel Coronavirus pandemic is an impossible task for cricketers, the blessing of social media is a boon these days for them to keep in touch their their supporters. Such is the case of David Warner, the Aussie hard hitting batsman, who’s lack of international fixtures has him busy on Instagram, where he is making entertaining posts for his followers, and his latest video is him imitating Team India stalwart Ravindra Jadeja’s famous celebratory gesture and moves his bat just like a sword!
Well, it is just a bloopers clip from an advertisement Warner did last year for his IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad. The opening batsman uploaded the video on Instagram, with the following caption: “Throwback to this time last year to a commercial we were doing for @sunrisershyd Do you think I’ve got @royalnavghan covered for the sword?”
Check out Warner’s amazing sword play with the bat, plus some eye-catching footwork as he does a flawless mimic of Ravindra Jadeja’s signature move below-
The video that ended with a hysterically laughing Warner, gathered tons of reactions from his fans, including his SRH teammate Wriddhiman Saha, who was seen in the comment box with two laughing emojis.
Jadeja does his signature ‘sword-work’ move to celebrate whenever he reaches 50 runs in a match. Check out this footage from a Test match against Australia where the superstar Men in Blue all rounder does his famous celebration:
Other than keeping his fans entertained with such posts, and also having some heartwarming father-daughter times with his little girl, Warner has also been spreading awareness about the Coronavirus outbreak through social media.
The 33 year old recently shaved his head to show his support towards the healthcare workers toiling in front line in the battle against the deadly virus outbreak.
The 2016 IPL winning captain has 84 Test and 123 ODI caps for the Australian cricket team, and scored a stunning 67-off-88 in the first match of the New Zealand ODI series in March, which eventually met with a cancellation due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Till date, there has been 6,104 confirmed cases of Coronavirus in Australia, and the death toll is at 51.
