SL vs AUS: David Warner pens heartfelt message to Sri Lankan fans
SL vs AUS: Veteran Australia opener David Warner has penned a heartfelt note to Sri Lankans to attend the fiercely contested month-long series between the two nations in large numbers despite the country’s ongoing economic and political crises.
Sri Lanka is in a serious economic and political predicament as a result of the country’s severe lack of gasoline, necessities, and medications. David Warner, the star batter for Australia, thanked the Sri Lankan supporters on Instagram on Monday for welcoming Australia “at what is a really trying time.”

“Thank you Sri Lanka for hosting us here during what is an extremely difficult time. We are so grateful to be able to come here and play the game we love and know you all love supporting. You have opened your arms up to us and we will never forget this trip. What I love about your amazing country is no matter the circumstances you always have a smile on your face and are always so welcoming. Thank you and I can’t wait to one day visit for a holiday with my family,” Warner wrote in a post.
After a month-long, eventful tour of Sri Lanka, the guests depart for their home country. They won the T20I series during their visit 2-1, but lost the ODI series 3-2 and tied the Test series 1-1. They were stunned by the Sri Lankan team’s comeback in the ODIs and Tests after a successful start to the tour.
