WATCH | Iconic ‘Pushpa’ Celebration by David Warner Caps Off Shafique’s Wicket, Pakistan in Trouble

David Warner delighted fans with a charming ‘Pushpa’ style celebration after Shafique’s dismissal, a video of which has since gone viral.

In the ongoing warm-up match between Pakistan and Australia at Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium, Australia won the toss and elected to bat. They put up a commanding total of 351 runs, thanks to stellar performances from Warner, Marsh, Smith, Labuschagne, Maxwell, and Green.

Australia’s batting display was highlighted by the strong opening partnership of Warner and Marsh, followed by a stabilizing effort from Smith and Labuschagne. Maxwell and Inglis added some entertaining moments, and Green’s valuable fifty propelled Australia to an imposing total of 351 runs.

Pakistan’s innings began poorly, losing two wickets for just 50 runs. A strong partnership was crucial for their recovery, but Sean Abbott and David Warner’s performance kept Pakistan’s hopes at bay. Their third wicket tumbled in the 12th over when their score stood at 63.

Shafique attempted a pull shot but mishit a delivery that was pitched at a challenging length and outside the off-stump. The ball went high in the air and was safely caught by David Warner at mid-off. Warner then celebrated with his adorable ‘Pushpa’ style dance, and this celebratory video is now gaining popularity on Twitter.

Before this, David Warner and his daughter celebrated Allu Arjun’s birthday with the famous Pushpa dance step, causing an online sensation. Then, following Australia’s surprising win against India in the third ODI, Warner was spotted repeating the Pushpa celebration with his teammates on the trophy podium, establishing it as one of his signature celebrations.
