There are many overseas cricketers who not only love to play in India but also they feel the comfort to roam around the city and interact with the local people. The credit for this involvement goes to Indian Premier League and Australian David Warner is one such batter who has admitted India as his second home.
The first ODI between India and Australia is being held in Mumbai, where Australian opening batsman David Warner recently played street cricket with his fans. David Warner has returned to the squad for the three-match ODI series against India.
Warner did take part in the first two Tests of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series, but he was unable to play in the other matches due to an injury. The southpaw has joined the Australian ODI squad in Mumbai after gaining his match fitness.
David Warner enjoys a large fan following in India and the batter loves to explore the cities and streets of this country. He took out time to participate in a street cricket game with his local supporters in Mumbai. He shared a short video clip of the game on his official Instagram account captioned, “Found a quiet street to have a hit 👌😂”
Pat Cummins will not play in the upcoming ODI series due to his family issues. While Cummins is still there in Australia, Steve Smith will be taking the charge of ODI captaincy as well.
The first ODI between India and Australia will be played at Wankhede on 17th March.
