Australian batting superstar David Warner might have a new career on his hands after delighting Indian fans in the IPL Twenty20 competition with some Bollywood dance moves.
Warner was captured busting moves to the song ‘Srivalli’ while playing for the Delhi Capitals in their match against the Kolkata Knight Riders at Brabourne Stadium in Mumbai, taking requests from the crowd as he stood along the boundary.

Srivalli is an enormously popular song from the recent Bollywood movie Pushpa: The Rise that has seen over 115 million views online while the movie raked in $53 million at the box office.
The Hindi version of the Srivalli video is reportedly the most-watched song on YouTube and fans across India delight in emulating the dance moves.
It seems Warner’s moves weren’t off the cuff, either. In December last year he posted a video to Instagram of him practising his Srivalli dancing.
He even wore the black and white shirt, black pants and sunglasses that are the hallmarks of the character who dances to the song in Pushpa.
The lead star of Pushpa: The Rise, Allu Arjun, even responded to the David Warner’s recreation of his dance moves.
He commented with emojis, first expressing delighted laughter, then appreciation, followed by admiration for Warner’s moves.

Pushpa: The Rise is the first part of a two-part crime drama film starring Arjun, Rashmika Mandanna, Fahadh Faasil and Dhananjay. It released on December 17, 2021, and became an immediate hit.
Warner has posted many videos of his Bollywood dance moves over the years, much to the delight of his strong Indian fan base.
He has also posted adorable videos on social media platform Tik Tok and Instagram of him dancing with his wife Candace and daughters Ivy Mae, Indi Rae, and Isla Rose.
For those following the match, Delhi produced a huge score of 215/5 from their 20 overs with Warner slapping 61 runs off 45 balls. They finished comfortable winners, downing the Knight Riders by 44 runs.
