‘I’m Virat Kohli’, says Warner’s daughter while playing cricket, wins over the Internet with her cuteness
In an Instagram video uploaded by Warner, Ivy Mae can be seen playing cricket at her home.
The 5-year-old girl is holding a bat in the video, ready to face one of her dad’s deliveries. As she hits the ball with the bat, she chuckles, and says, “‘I’m Virat Kohli’”.
Candice Warner posted the video on Instagram and captioned it, “This little girl has spent too much time in India. Wants to be Virat Kohli.”

While her own dad is unarguably one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket,it seems like the Indian batsman and all-rounder, has a special place in Ivy Mae’s heart.
The video pulled at the heartstrings of several Twitter users and they couldn’t help but adore the young girl for her innocence and cuteness.
Some Twitter users pointed out that Mae’s daddy is a pretty good batsman, too!

Needless to say, Mae is not the only young fan Kohli has. The 31-year-old is a role model for all the young kids who wish to make a career in cricket.
Now that the batsman has earned another young and adorable fan, it will be interesting to see the cricketer set new examples for children who absolutely adore him.
