SunRisers Hyderabad captain and Australian cricketer David Warner landed in Chennai on Friday for the next edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2021). After catching up on his sleep, the 34-year-old took to Instagram to ask fans and followers for advice on how to spend time in quarantine. David Warner shared a video in which he revealed he would undergo a week-long quarantine in Chennai as a precaution against Covid-19.
His video asking for advice received a hilarious comment from Rohit Sharma, who plays for the Indians of Mumbai, triggering an exchange between the two that amused thousands of people.
“Hi everyone. Well, I just woke up from a massive, massive sleep. I arrived here in Chennai yesterday afternoon. I have 6 or 7 days to get through my quarantine,” David Warner said in his Instagram video. “I need some ideas. Please comment below. Give me some ideas. Let it be fun stuff … silly stuff. Anyway. Please comment below. Netflix shows. I need something. Thank you, thank you! “
While many offered helpful suggestions to the Australian cricketer, who became a TikTok sensation last year, Rohit Sharma decided to give Warner a light dig.
“He must be missing tik tok,” Rohit Sharma wrote responding to the video.
The SunRisers Hyderabad player confirmed that TikTok was indeed missing in India, where the short form video app was banned along with several other Chinese apps last year. “Maybe I should do a duet dance with you on Reels,” he added, with three laughing emojis.
David Warner turned to TikTok during the coronavirus-induced lockdown last year. His Bollywood-inspired videos have won him millions of fans.
The IPL kicks off on April 9 with the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) and Mumbai Indians locking the horns when the tournament opens. The Rajasthan Royals will play their first game on April 12 against the Punjab Kings in Mumbai.
