David Warner returned to Australia last week.
The past few weeks have been tough for Australian players who have participated in the now postponed Indian Premier League (IPL) 2021. Following the brutal suspension of the tournament, the Australian contingent had to travel to the Maldives due to the travel ban imposed by the Australian government. Nonetheless, all players and staff landed in Australia last week after spending 13 days in the island nation. Dashing opener David Warner is also back in Down Under, and his wife Candice is thrilled.
At the time of the season suspension, the second wave of COVID-19 was wreaking havoc in India. Additionally, many players and staff also contracted the virus while in the bio-secure bubble. As a result, Candice and her daughters Ivy, Indi and Isla were worried, with the opening of Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) taking place in the COVID-ravaged country. On Wednesday, Warner’s wife opened up about her family’s bitter experience.
My Daughters Can Feel And Understand What Is Going On: Candice Warner
“It was difficult but even more so for my daughters, who are now at an age where they can feel and understand what is going on. I thought they were a little oblivious to the situation, but when they see things on the news or the parents at school ask how their dad is or how David is, I guess it was really hard for us ” , she says on The Morning Show.
Candice added that the left-handed drummer is very close to his children. Therefore, her daughters are counting the days on the calendar. Notably, the 34-year-old is currently serving 14 days of solitary confinement in Sydney and has to wait a few more days to be reunited with his family.
“David is such an active father. He’s the larrikin, the one who keeps the kids entertained and the girls can’t wait to have their dad at home, ”Candice said.
Meanwhile, Warner might not be able to spend much time at home as he was named to the Australian preliminary squad on tour of the West Indies in July. Australians will travel to the Caribbean Islands for five T20Is and three ODIs, starting July 10. It would indeed be a great preparation chance for both teams with the ICC T20 World T20 scheduled for later this year in India.
