David Warner showing off some dance moves on day 5 of Rawalpindi Test against Pakistan
With the first Test between Pakistan and Australia meandering towards a draw on a placid track in Rawalpindi, Aussie opening batter David Warner decided to have some fun on the ground. In a video shared by the Pakistan Cricket Board on its social media handles, Warner can be seen breaking into impromptu jigs whenever the camera was on him. He also showed off some “bhangra” skills, a folkdance form that is native to the Pakistani and Indian states of Punjab.
