There’s no one stopping David Warner’s antics on social media! Not at least when he’s away from cricket assignments. The southpaw was last seen in the now-postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021, which got suspended midway on May 4. This means Warner has been out of action over the last two months. However, has the left-handed batsman been away from the limelight during this period? Not really.
Warner has been constantly entertaining his fans by posting intriguing photos and videos on Instagram. People following him would be aware of the cricketer’s special love for the Indian movie industry as most of his posts feature him stepping into Bollywood actors’ shoes. He often shares morphed pics and clips, swapping faces with Indian film stars. In his latest post, Warner has compared himself to veteran actor Akshay Kumar.
In a merged pic, the swashbuckler recreated Akshay’s epic pose from the comedy film Hera Pheri. He even asked fans if he did the iconic pose better than the Sooryavanshi star. “Who did it better @akshaykumar #models #pose #funny @sunrisersarmy thanks,” wrote the 34-year-old in the caption.

Rashid Khan left in splits
The comment section got flooded in no time as Warner once again managed to amuse his followers. Afghanistan leg-spinner Rashid Khan is one cricketer who’s actively following the Australian opener on social media. He didn’t miss reacting to this picture as well, firing ‘face with tears of joy’ emojis in the comment section. In response, Warner amusedly asked: “@rashid.khan19 why (are) you laughing (at) me rashidddd khaaaan.”
Meanwhile, Warner, alongside six other teammates, had pulled out of Australia’s tour of West Indies and Bangladesh. Hence, the date of his comeback on the field is not certain. If things fall in place, he’ll feature in the remaining IPL 2021 which commences in September in UAE. The southpaw will indeed have a point to prove as he endured a tough time during the first leg of the tournament.
The dasher wasn’t at his prime with the bat and he subsequently got sacked as SRH captain midway in the tournament. Warner even got dropped from the playing XI. Hence, he would be determined to stamp his authority once again.
