IPL-bound Australian cricketers finally got to reunite with their family members after completing their quarantine upon reaching Australia from India. David Warner was seen getting emotional after meeting his children, who gave him a warm welcome back home.
While other foreign cricketers returned home from India, Australian players and staff members, who were part of the IPL 2021, had to fly to the Maldives due to the travel ban from India in their country. Warner spent a few days there before finally going to Australia.
Finally, after completing quarantine in Australia, the cricketers returned home. David Warner can be seen delighted after reuniting with his daughter and wife. All three daughters welcomed him home as wife Candice Warner recorded the video and shared it on Instagram.
“Welcome home Daddy! @DavidWarner31,” she captioned the video.

David Warner endured a poor season in IPL 2021
Meanwhile, speaking about cricket, David Warner endured a poor run in IPL 2021. Warner, who led the side when they won the title in 2016 has been their highest run-scorer in the last few seasons. The southpaw’s run-scoring tally reads – 410, 528, 562, 848, 641, 692, and 541 from 2013 to 2020 respectively excluding 2018 where he missed the entire season due to a ban. However, he has been far from his usual form.
The combined result of his failure with the bat and as a leader has perhaps urged the management to strip him off leadership duties and appoint Kane Williamson as the captain midway. Sunrisers Hyderabad find themselves in the eighth spot with only one win from seven outings before the tournament was called off due to COVID19 crisis.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has confirmed that they will resume IPL 2021 in the UAE in the month of September-October. Hyderabad will be mulling over Warner’s return as the Aussie cricketer is unlikely to travel to the UAE amid international commitments.
