After registering a historic triple hundred on Saturday, Australia opening batsman David Warner presented his young fans with a gift of a lifetime - his helmet and his gloves. But the prized trophies immediately triggered a fight among the young fans as a group of kids were caught on camera trying to grab the gloves and helmet. As per the footage, a young girl managed to keep the gloves on herself, while a young boy was seen getting upset, after comparatively older boys got hold of the helmet.

 

Soon after, Fox Cricket interviewed the older boy with the helmet, which triggered a furore on Twitter, with many labelling him as a “bully” for “snatching the helmet from a younger kid.

 

 

 

 

 

 

According to a recent report on Australian website Wide World of Sports, the boy and his family has decided to donate the helmet to the SACA museum, which is set to open next year. The report further claims that privately, Fox Sports, who interviewed the boy, broadcasters Seven and Cricket Australia, viewed the available footage from all angles and opined that the helmet has landed to the intended target.
