Australian cricketer David Warner has finally been reunited with his young family after fleeing coronavirus-riddled India earlier this month.
The star batsman was released from hotel quarantine on Monday morning, 14 days after he landed in Sydney from the Maldives.
He and 40 other Australian cricket players, coaches, support staff and commentators had fled India for the island paradise earlier this month following the suspension of the Indian Premier League due to a horror wave of Covid-19.
They were unable to return to Australia until at least May 15 due to a temporary travel ban enforced by the federal government.
Warner’s wife, Candice, uploaded heartwarming footage of their pre-dawn reunion showing their three young daughters Ivy, Indi and Isla greeting their dad while still in their pyjamas.

‘Daddy’s home,’ his wife captioned the joyful moment.

Warner had been counting down the minutes to being reunited with his family with an Instagram story showing five separate alarms set for Monday morning.
’14th day of quarantine, one sleep to go. I can’t wait to see my girls again,’ he captioned a photo collage of his family on Sunday.
Cricketers Pat Cummins, Steve Smith and Jason Behrendorff, along with fellow Australian great Ricky Ponting have also been reunited with their loved ones after their release from quarantine on Monday.

Earlier in May, Warner uploaded a poignant drawing of his young family with a handwritten note from his eldest daughter Ivy Mae to Instagram while stranded in Covid-ravaged India.
‘Please daddy come home straight away. We miss you a lot and love you. Love from Ivy, Indi and Isla,’ the six-year-old wrote.
The note includes a drawing of the family surrounded by red love hearts.
‘My gorgeous Ivy. So much love ‘ Warner captioned the heartbreaking note.
The letter was also uploaded by Warner’s wife Candice who also shared a photo of Ivy penning the letter.
