Australian opener David Warner tried to recreate the ‘Cristiano Ronaldo Coke bottle moment’ in the post-match press conference after the match between Australia and Sri Lanka. Ronaldo had removed the Coke bottles from his table in the press conference earlier this year, and this resulted in a loss of $4 Billion for Coca Cola.
Warner tried to do the same, but was asked to put the Coke bottles back on the table. In fact, Warner even asked whether he needs to put the Coke bottles back as well. The 35-year-old also cheekily stated ‘If it is good enough for Cristiano, it is good enough for me’.
David Warner’s superb half-century helps Australia trounce Sri Lanka
In the encounter between Australia and Sri Lanka in t20 worldcup on October 28, 2021, Sri Lanka scored a decent total of 154/6 on the scoreboard. In reply, David Warner was in red hot form with the willow and scored a whirlwind 65 off 42 deliveries at the top of the order to help Australia breeze past the target with 7 wickets and 3 overs to spare.
The left-handed batting dynamite struck 10 fours in his enterprising innings. Apart from Warner, Australian captain Aaron Finch and veteran hitter Steven Smith have also contributed useful runs. While Finch scored an impressive 23 balls 37, Smith stayed till the end and helped himself to a patient 28*.
David Warner is one of the best hitters to ever play for the Australian team in the T20I format of the game. Warner is currently the second top scorer for the Australian team's in T20I cricket and has plundered 2344 runs in 83 innings at an average of 31.67 and a strike rate of close to 140. Warner has also scored 1 hundred and 19 fifties in T20I cricket as well.
Warner will next take the field for the Australian side on 30th October 2021, when the kangaroos clash against their arch-rivals England at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium
