Recently the Australian team was seen cheering Mitchell Starc’s brother Brandon from Dhaka. Brandon Starc is a high jumper who was involved in the action for the men’s high jump final in Tokyo on Sunday. Warner too had come forward to appreciate the efforts of Brandon as he tweeted about it.
The SRH team had posted an image of the countdown for the England and India Test series.

Warner retweeted Boria Majumdar’s tweet wherein the latter had written: “Hey @davidwarner31 you supported @Pvsindhu1 so this for you. Watch https://youtu.be/MOtolhgWeQk and keep cheering for India!! Thanks for your message for Sindhu.”
Warner is always active on his social media accounts and keeps the fans entertained through his engaging posts. On the occasion of Friendship Day, the Southpaw had shared a picture with SRH teammates Williamson and Jonny Bairstow.
