David Warner apologize to fan for Instagram post
He posted an old photo on his Instagram handle. It featured Aaron Finch and Virat Kohli, and the caption read “who’s winning tonight?”
The fans were not pleased by this image as it featured Virat Kohli, who is no longer the captain of Indian team. They were quick to point it out in the comment section.
A user pointed out “rohit captain hai virat nahi… (Rohit Sharma is the captain not Virat).” To this the Australian international was quick to respond with a quick apology. He wrote, “I know sorry.”
The internet broke on this reply and everywhere people were seen praising the simplicity of Warner to have apologized for his earnest mistake.
This is not all. The player had also interacted in his comment section with several people commenting on who shall win the game. By doing this Warner maintains his presence in his fan’s mind even when he is not playing.
The match however was won by Australia in an emphatic manner. Their batters chased down the total of 208 with 5 balls to spare. Opener Cameron Green and wicketkeeper batter Matthew Wade played blinders to ensure their team’s victory in the opening encounter of the three match series.
