Who is Warner’s favourite Indian bataman?

Warner reveals his favorite Indian batsman, bowler and his favorite place in India

By Aditya Pratap Arya -

David Warner is in India for the Border-Gavaskar series, where his team is leading 1-0 in the four-match Test series, after a massive 333-run victory in Pune. His team finished the match under just three day and now they can take a refreshing break before the second test, which will start on March 4. Warner used his time for a Question-Answer session with fans on twitter. The number of tweets was enough to describe his fan-following around the world.

He picked his favorite players during the session and also named his favorite place in India. One follower asked the funniest cricketer he has ever played with, where he opted the name of Bipul Sharma. Warner and Bipul Sharma have played together in the Indian Premier League for Sunrisers Hyderabad.

When a fan asked to describe the former Indian captain MS Dhoni, he said “What a Cricketer”. On the question of favorite Pakistani player, he chose the name of Wahab Riaz straight away. Warner was the first victim of the famous Riaz’s spell during the World Cup 2015 quarterfinal. He named Hyderabad as his favorite place in India, where he spends a lot of time during IPL.

The 30-year-old opted the name of his captain Steve Smith as his favorite batsman and described him in a word ‘Strong’. On the question about Virat Kohli, he again went with a single word for him as well i.e. ‘Genius’. When asked about his favorite Indian bowler and batsman except for Kohli, he chose Bhuvneshwar Kumar and KL Rahul as the respective answers.

When a fan asked whether they will sledge Kohli or not, he clearly said 'No way'.

Another question arose related to India, but it was an off-beat asks as one follower asked if he would do a Bollywood movie. His reply was “Not likely unless I am asked.” He added “Tora Tora Hindi.”

David Warner is one of the mainstays in the Australian batting line-up in all forms of cricket. His career saw a massive turnaround after the ‘Punch incident’ in England during the Ashes 2013 in The UK. Currently, he holds two consecutive Allen Border Medal, which proves his success in the International cricket. Also, he will be a key player for the remaining matches in India, his form can rotate the pendulum of this series.
