Watch: Fan yells ‘David Warner you f*****g cheat’. Australian opener’s reaction is hilarious

first_imgDavid Warner has gotten so used to the boos and abuses from the English crowd in this Ashes series that he has started to find the funny side of all the sledging that he is being subjected to. It happened Birmingham in the first match and it happened again on Friday at Old Trafford.During one of the breaks on Day 3 of the fourth Test, Warner was going down the steps of the Australian dressing room to the ground when a fan yelled “Warner you f*****g cheat”. But the former vice-captain just turned around and gave him a thumbs up and shouted “woooo” with a smile instead.The video of the whole incident was captured and shared online. Needless to say, it went viral within minutes of it being shared on social media.Fan: Warner you f*cking cheat!David Warner: …via @AdamGMillington Shouts (@crickshouts) September 6, 2019This is not the first time fans have tried to rattle Warner during a match. Last month during the first Test at Edgbaston, he was fielding in front of the Hollies Stand when the crowd started shouting: “He’s got sandpaper in his hands!”Warner acknowledged the crowd by opening both his palms to show that there was nothing in his hands before emptying his pockets too, following which the crowd gave him a loud and heartfelt round of applause.Warner has been woefully out of form with the bat but is still keeping his spirits up thanks to Australia’s dominant show in the series so far. He has managed just 79 runs in 7 innings so far at an average of 11.28 with 61 being his highest score.advertisementAustralia had won the at Edgbaston and on Friday, they took firm control of the ongoing fourth Test at Old Trafford reducing England to 200 for 5 in their first innings on Day 3 with the hosts still trailing the Ashes holders by 297 runs with 2 more days of the game remaining.Fast bowler Josh Hazlewood ripped through England with three crucial late wickets in the final session to leave Joe Root’s side reeling at the end of day’s play in Manchester.England still need 98 runs to avoid following on and that will be no formality after Hazlewood undid so much of the good work from Rory Burns (81) and Joe Root (71) earlier in the day.The five-match series is standing at 1-1 and victory for Australia, who declared their first innings on 497 for 8, would ensure they retain The Ashes ahead of the final Test at the Oval next week.Also Read | Ashes 2019 4th Test Day 3: Late Josh Hazlewood burst leaves England in troubleAlso Read | Complicated technique but an organised mindset: Sachin Tendulkar lauds Steve SmithAlso Read | 12-year-old boy picks garbage for 4 years to fulfill dream of watching Asheslast_img read more
