Australian cricketer David Warner etched his name in the pages of cricket history with a stellar performance in the Australia vs Pakistan clash during the ICC Men’s World Cup 2023. He notched his fifth ODI World Cup century, solidifying his position as one of the world’s elite cricketers.
However, what truly set this century apart was Warner’s unique and iconic celebration. At the M.Chinnaswamy Stadium in Bengaluru, he commemorated the century in his signature ‘Pushpa’ style, inspired by Allu Arjun.
Here’s how people reacted to the celebration:
Warner’s affection for Allu Arjun and the ‘Pushpa’ dance step is well-known, as he showcased the same during his stint with Sunrisers Hyderabad in the IPL. His entertaining performances, including the ‘Srivalli’ dance step and Pushpa’s ‘Jhukega nahi’ step, resonated with the crowd and solidified his fanbase in India.
Warner’s admiration for Allu Arjun transcends cricket, as he even extended his best wishes to the Telugu actor on receiving the National Award for Best Actor. The Australian cricketer’s incredible feat has made him the fifth batter ever to reach this illustrious milestone of scoring centuries.
