Australian cricketer, David Warner has found a new way of entertaining his fans other than his cricketing skills. The southpaw began making funny videos with his family ever since the covid lockdown started. It is worth mentioning that Warner is a huge fan of the Tollywood industry. He is often seen delivering famous dialogues from the movie industry. Warner, once again, showed his love for the Telugu cinema as he uploaded a face-swap video of a film replacing actor Mahesh Babu’s face with his own on Friday.
The 35-year-old captioned the post asking the fans which actor was he playing? One of the fans came up with a hilarious answer and wrote “Warner Babu”. The post has since gone viral and it already has more than 5000 comments on it with several fans trying to guess the name of the star.

Warner will be next seen in action in the three-match T20I series against India starting 20th September. The Australian team will further continue their preparation for the 20-20 World Cup with back-to-back series against West Indies and England.
The Aussies are the defending champions of the World Cup having won it last year. Warner was awarded ‘Player of the Tournament’ for scoring 289 runs in seven innings at an average of 48 and a strike rate of 146. He scored three half-centuries in the tournament and finished as the second-highest run-scorer.
Warner will once again play a key role for his team at the mega event this year in Australia starting on 16th October. In the three matches he’s played in the format this year, the opener has scored 130 runs at an average of 65 and a magnificent strike rate of 149. He will look to continue his great form in the mega event as Australia eye on becoming the first ever host nation to clinch the trophy.
The explosive batter took the cricketing world by storm on his international and T20I debut against South Africa way back in 2009. He scored 89 off 43 balls in his first appearance in international cricket.
