Australian opener David Warner tried to recreate the ‘Cristiano Ronaldo Coke bottle moment’ in the post-match press conference after the match between Australia and Sri Lanka. Ronaldo had removed the Coke bottles from his table in the press conference earlier this year, and this resulted in a loss of $4 Billion for Coca Cola.

Warner tried to do the same thing but was asked to put the Coke bottles back on the table. In fact, Warner even asked whether he needs to put the Coke bottles back as well. The 35-year-old also cheekily stated ‘If it is good enough for Cristiano, it is good enough for me’.

David Warner’s superb half-century helps Australia trounce Sri Lanka

In the encounter between Australia and Sri Lanka on 28th October 2021, the Sri Lankan side posted a decent total of 154/6 on the board. In reply, David Warner was in red hot form with the willow and scored a whirlwind 65 off 42 deliveries at the top of the order to help Australia breeze past the target with 7 wickets and 3 overs to spare.

The left-handed batting dynamite struck 10 fours in his enterprising innings. Apart from Warner, Aussie skipper Aaron Finch and veteran batsman Steven Smith also contributed useful runs as well. While Finch scored a superb 23-ball 37, Smith stayed till the end and helped himself to a patient 28*.

David Warner is one of the greatest batsmen to have ever played for the Australian side in the T20I format of the game. Warner is currently the second-highest run-scorer for the Australian side in T20I cricket and has plundered 2344 runs in 83 innings at an average of 31.67 and a strike rate of close to 140. Warner has also scored 1 hundred and 19 fifties in T20I cricket as well.

Warner will next take the field for the Australian side on 30th October 2021, when the kangaroos clash against their arch-rivals England at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium.
