Australian opener David Warner took to Instagram on Saturday to share a photo of his daughter Indi wearing a signed shirt donated by Indian skipper Virat Kohli. Warner’s second daughter Indi-Rae, who is a huge fan of the Indian Skipper, can be seen posing for the camera wearing Kohli’s “play jersey”. Warner, who played the last two games of the just-concluded series of four tests, said that although his team lost the series, his daughter Indi was “very happy” after receiving the special gift from the Indian skipper. In his post, Warner also said that, in addition to him and his limited-overs opening partner Arron Finch, Indi is a huge Virat Kohli fan.
“I know we lost the series, but we have a very happy girl here !! Thank you @ virat.kohli for your play shirt, Indi absolutely loves it. Besides daddy and @ aaronfinch5 she also loves VK #fan #love #cricket, ”Warner wrote, posting the photo to Instagram.
Last year, on a radio show for India’s series against Australia, Warner’s wife Candice had jokingly described her middle child Indi as a “rebel” because she wants to be Virat Kohli.
“We play a little bit of cricket in the backyard. The funny thing is that sometimes my girls want to be dads, sometimes Finchy (Aaron Finch), but my middle child, she wants to be Virat Kohli. And I don’t even agree. Just kidding, her favorite player is Virat Kohli. She’s the rebel, “Candice had told the radio station Triple M Sydney.
While Warner missed the first two tests due to an injury, Kohli returned home after the first test for the birth of his first child. In Kohli’s absence, Ajinkya Rahane-led India bounced back after losing the first Test in some style and retained the Border-Gavaskar Trophy, beating Australia 2-1.
