Australia opener David Warner might be regarded as one of the best batsman in limited-overs cricket all across the world. But for his young daughter Indi-Mae, it seems Indian captain Virat Kohli is the idol. In a video uploaded by David Warner on Instagram, the 3-year-old daughter of the Australian international was seen playing cricket with his family. But what catches attention is the fact that the young girl is mumbling - “I am Virat Kohli”, while hitting the ball with her bat.

The 33-year-old cricketer posted the video on Instagram, in which he captioned the video - “I’m not sure about this one. Indi wants to be Virat Kohli.” 

Warner’s wife also posted the same video on Twitter with the caption: “This little girl has spent too much time in India. Wants to be Virat Kohli.”

 

Kohli, who is currently on a break from cricket and is playing no part in the ongoing T20I international series against Bangladesh, is the leading player in ICC’s ODI batting list with 895 points, while Warner, is in the 7th place with 794 points. In Tests, Kohli is at the 2nd position, only next to Warner’s Aussie teammate Steve Smith, while the left-handed batsman is at the 24th position.
