Rohit was quick to spot Warner’s update and he reacted to it.
During the lockdown period, Warner made a lot of hilarious Tik-Tok videos. In some of the videos, he had his wife and kids giving him company.
Both Warner and Rohit would be key players for their franchises in the upcoming IPL. Both the captains and openers would have to play a stellar role if they want their respective sides to do well in the cash-rich league.
Rohit Sharma-led Mumbai Indians, who are the reigning champions, will take on a revamped Royal Challengers Bangalore. RCB would be led by Virat Kohli and it is expected to be a mouthwatering clash in Chennai on April 9.
