Australia are currently playing against Sri Lanka and Sri Lanka had a pretty good start with an opening partnership of 125 at the Ekana Stadium in Lucknow. However, after that, Australia bounced back well and claimed three quick wickets in the middle as well. But when they were struggling at 178/4 after 32 overs then suddenly rain interrupted play. The unexpected delay caused frustration to them as they were in a good momentum. However, star batter David Warner made headlines with his kind gesture.
The ground staff were doing their best to drag the covers onto the playing surface once the umpires waved the players off and to make sure not much damage was done, Warner happily helped the hard-working groundstaff. He grabbed onto the covers and brought them out to the middle alongside others.
And, Twitterati couldn’t keep calm and started praising his gesture as well.
