“I am like Virat Kohli,” said David Warner’s daughter Ivy Mae while playing cricket with her father at their home.

In a video made by Candice, the Australian opener’s wife, young Ivy Mae is seen taking throwdowns from her father and as she prepared herself to face one of the deliveries, she repeatedly said: “I’m Virat Kohli.”

Warner may be regarded as one of the best batsman in limited-overs cricket in the world, but for his daughter, the Indian batting mainstay tops everyone else.

While Kohli heads the overall batting charts in the Indian Premier League, having amassed 5,412 runs, Warner has been in exceptional form in the past few seasons.

Warner missed the 2018 IPL season after being banned for his role in the infamous ball-tampering scandal in South Africa. He announced his comeback in 2019 in imperious fashion, topping the chart with 692 runs in 12 matches at an average of 69.20 and a strike rate of 143.86.
