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

The cricketer was filmed hugging his youngest daughter while surrounded by his two older girls.
“Daddy is home,” his wife wrote at the moment of joy.
She also posted a photo of her husband holding Isla.
Warner had counted down the minutes to be reunited with his family with an Instagram story that featured five separate alarms for Monday morning.
14th quarantine day, one more night of sleep. I can’t wait to see my girls again,” he wrote on Sunday with a photo collage of his family.
Cricketers Pat Cummins, Steve Smith and Jason Behrendorff, along with compatriot Ricky Ponting, have also been reunited with their loved ones following their release from quarantine on Monday.

Earlier in May, Warner uploaded a poignant drawing of his young family with a handwritten note of his eldest daughter Ivy Mae on Instagram while he was stranded in Covid-ravaged India.
“Please, Daddy, come home right away. We miss you very much and love you. Love from Ivy, Indi and Isla,” the six-year-old wrote.
The note contains a drawing of the family surrounded by red love hearts.
‘My beautiful Ivy. So much love,” Warner wrote alongside the heartbreaking note.
The letter was also uploaded by Warner’s wife Candice, who also shared a photo of Ivy writing the letter.
