Australia’s aggressive opening batsman David Warner finally reunited with his family comprising his wife Candice Warner and three daughters Ivy Mae, Indi Rae and Isla Rose after a long period of 108-days. Warner was away from his family for more than three months as he travelled to England in the month of August for an ODI and T20I series before heading to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for taking part in the just-concluded 13th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The batsman arrived in Australia earlier this month after his IPL franchise Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) lost to Delhi Capitals (DC) in the 2nd Qualifier of IPL 2020. However, owing to the strict quarantine rules due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Warner was locked in a hotel room for 14 days. He finally completed his quarantine today and had an emotional reunion with his family.
An adorable video of Warner meeting his three daughters Ivy, Indi and Isla is going viral on social media. The official Twitter handle of cricket.com.au shared the reunion clip with the caption, “Aussie opener @DavidWarner31is reunited with his family after finishing his hotel quarantine”
