IPL 2021 Final, CSK vs KKR: Who would David Warner support? Little girl makes choice for him
Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders are clashing in the IPL 2021 final. Meanwhile, here’s who David Warner would be supporting in the final, thanks to a little girl.
The stage is set for an epic final of the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL), as former champions, Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) collide at the Dubai International Stadium on Friday. While CSK is chasing its fourth title, KKR would be looking for its third.
CSK and KKR finished second and fourth, respectively, while fellow former champion SunRisers Hyderabad (SRH) finished at the bottom of the table. Although SRH is out, its former skipper David Warner would be watching the final.
However, who would Warner be cheering for? He sent out a tweet, writing, “I wasn’t sure who to go for tonight, but I could not say no to this Fan who asked me to post this!! #ipl #indi #yellow #CSK”, as he gave the link to an Instagram post.
The Insta post contained a drawing of him and his daughter donning CSK jersey, as Warner made it clear that he is supporting the yellow team from South India. However, since then, the Insta post has been deleted by the user.
In a follow-up to the image drawn by the fan, Warner posted the original picture, where he and his daughter don the SRH jersey. He captioned it, “Here’s the original, too many people were upset. What’s your prediction for tonight everyone. #ipl #cricket #sorry”.
Warner had a sorry season, scoring just 195 runs in eight innings at a poor average of 24.37 and a strike rate of 107.73, including twin half-centuries. Owing to a rough patch, he was dropped as captain and replaced by Kane Williamson, while he was later also removed from playing XI, besides being asked to stay in the hotel or cheer from stands.
