Australian opening batsman and former SunRisers Hyderabad captain David Warner’s wife Candice Warner has expressed how she felt when her husband was in India when the news of bio-bubble breach broke out. The first half of IPL 2021 was completed and in the second half, there was a coronavirus outbreak, which led to the suspension of the tournament.
David Warner is currently undergoing the mandatory 14-days quarantine at a hotel in Sydney. He has completed a week and is raring to get out of the isolation and join the community in Australia. His wife, Candice, has to look after her three daughters – Indi, Isla and Ivy and all three have grown up to an age where they understand what’s going on.

Speaking on The Morning Show on 7news, Candice revealed how relieved she was after her husband landed on Australian shores. She also spoke about handling her daughters when they used to see the COVID situation in India and also when other parents asked them ‘how their dad is’ at school.
“He is back on home soil with the rest of the boys that went to India, so we’re just very fortunate to have him back on our shores,” she said.
“It was difficult, but even more so for my daughters as they’re now at the age where they can feel and they understand what was going on. It is scary, it is a really dire situation over there and we’re just so grateful that he is back on home soil.”
After the suspension of IPL 2021, David Warner and his fellow Australians, who were banned from entering their homeland by the government, were forced to spend some days in Maldives before they were eligible to return to Australia. Currently, all the Australians are in isolation at a hotel in Sydney where they will stay for another week before mixing in the community.
