David Warner Apologizes to Indian Fans After Aussie World Cup Win
Responding to a disappointed fan on social media, Australian opener David Warner apologized for “breaking billions of hearts” with Australia’s World Cup final win over India. Warner said, “I apologize; it was such a great game, and the atmosphere was incredible. India really put on a serious event. Thank you all.”
Warner made just seven runs in the final as Australia clinically chased down India’s 241. However, earlier knocks of two centuries and two fifties proved crucial in powering Australia’s campaign. Warner also made key contributions in the field, as Australia put on a complete performance to silence the Motera crowd in Ahmedabad.
