The 32-year-old opening batsman of Australia is known to all fans and friends to be a thorough family man. A father of two and a loving husband, David Warner, and his family never shy away from expressing their care for each other. On Sunday, March 31, the Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) opener scored an unbeaten 100 off 55 in the team’s big total of 231 at the RGI Stadium in Hyderabad.

Together David Warner and Jonny Bairstow (114 off 56) took charge of Hyderabad’s batting and guided them to a 118-run victory over the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), led by Virat Kohli. Even in the first two matches for the SRH, Warner churned out a couple of useful knocks to mark his return to the IPL.

All in all, it simply shows Warner’s hunger to perform and score big runs which he has done in a majestic style. Warner couldn’t participate in the 11th edition of the IPL after he was banned by the BCCI due to the Sandpapergate incident. The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) decided to add the reciprocative measure taken over the veteran left-handed batsman by Cricket Australia (CA).

Warner married Australian ironwoman Candice Falzon in April 2015. The couple gave birth to their first child on 11 September 2014 and named her Ivy Mae. They had their second daughter, Indi Rae, on 14 January 2016. Subsequently, Warner was named Australian Sports Dad of the Year in 2016. However, throughout the series of unfortunate events following the aftermath of the ball-tampering saga at the Newlands, his wife Candice lost their third child due to miscarriage.

The pain of being suspended from top-level cricket added by the loss of a child must have been moving thick within David Warner and all of that has reflected in his performance for the Sunrisers Hyderabad. The 32-year-old has amassed 254 runs at an incredible average of 127.00 and strike-rate of 175.17 in three matches so far in the IPL 2019. His wife took to Twitter to write how proud she is of her ‘man’ and she also thanked the fans of the SRH team.
