Cricket WAG Candice Warner feels ‘very fortunate’ to have her husband David back in Australia after he was stranded in Covid-ravaged India – and says their daughters ‘can’t wait to have their father home’

Australian cricketers including David Warner returned to Australia last week after being left stranded in Covid-ravaged India.

And on Wednesday, David’s wife Candice Warner said she felt ‘very fortunate’ to have her husband of six years back home.

‘He is back on home soil with the rest of the boys that went to India and we are very fortunate to have him back on our shores,’ the 36-year-old former Ironwoman said on The Morning Show.

Candice went on to say the experience had been extremely difficult for the couple’s three daughters Ivy, six, Indi, five, and Isla, one.

‘It was difficult but even more for my daughters, who are now at the age where they can feel and understand what is going on,’ she said.

‘I thought they were a bit oblivious to the situation but when they’re seeing things on the news or parents at school are coming up asking how their dad is or how David is, I guess that was really hard for us.’

Candice added: ‘David is such a hands-on father. He is the larrikin, the one that entertains the kids and the girls can’t wait to have their father home.’

It comes after it was revealed David had returned Australia with his teammates.

Last week, it was reported that a group of Australian cricketers and their support staff had returned to Sydney after they were left stranded in India.

The cricketers touched down via private jet at about 7.30am on Monday, May 17, after fleeing the COVID ravaged country for the Maldives.

In an interview with The Daily Telegraph earlier this month, Candice said she was counting down the days until David could come home.

‘It is a dire situation in India and we’re really looking forward to having him home safe as soon as he can get back,’ she said at the time.

The Australian cricket team found themselves trapped in India after Australia closed its borders to the beleaguered nation.

They were left stranded after the Indian Premier League was suspended indefinitely and multiple players tested positive to COVID-19.

Back home: It comes after it was revealed that Candice's husband of six years had arrived back in Australia. Last week, it was reported that a group of Australian cricketers and their support staff had returned to Sydney after they were left stranded in India
