Australia’s opening batsman David Warner was the standout performer with the bat during the game against Sri Lanka in Dubai. The southpaw led the batting attack by example as he scored a brilliant half-century during the run-chase.
Warner got off to a good start by scoring some boundaries. His innings would have come to a close on 18. However, Sri Lanka’s wicket-keeper Kusal Perera dropped the easiest catch of his cricketing career. Social media were left in splits and memes started to circulate as well.
Meanwhile, David Warner used his second life productively as he went on to break his lean patch. He went on to score 65 off 42 balls with the help of 10 boundaries. Australia comfortably chased down 155 with 18 balls to spare.
Australian fans heaped praise on Warner for getting back to form. After the game, Warner addressed the reporters at the post-match press conference. An interesting incident took place at the post-match that went viral on social media.
David Warner does a Cristiano Ronaldo at the post-match presser
Australia’s star opener pulled off a similar stunt performed by Cristiano Ronaldo during the press conference. Warner who sat on a chair noticed that there were two Coca Cola bottled placed in front of him. The southpaw went on to remove those two bottles and kept them beneath the table during a press conference for quite a while.
Warner said with a smile, “Can I remove these? Though I have to put it there.” “If it’s good enough for Cristiano, it’s good enough for me. That’s right,” he said while putting those 2 bottles back.

For the uninitiated, Ronaldo’s act of pulling out the soft drink during a European Championships press conference reportedly cost Coca Cola a staggering US$ 4 billion.
