NEW DELHI: Australian cricketer David Warner welcomed his baby girl on Sunday, and named her - Isla Rose Warner - a day after Australia beat New Zealand at the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.

Warner shared a post on Instagram with his family, and wrote, "We welcomed our newest family member Isla Rose Warner at 10:30 pm late last night. @candywarner1 was absolutely amazing. Mum and Bub doing very well and her big sisters are over the moon. #prouddad."

The 32-year-old opener confirmed that his wife Candice Warner and the newborn are doing well.

Mrs Warner also took to Instagram to share a picture of her 'complete family'. In her post, she mentioned that her daughters are extremely proud of their newborn sister.

The cricketer, who returned to play play for international cricket after serving a one-year ban for the infamous ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, became the highest run-scorer in the ongoing World Cup.

The ball-tampering controversy had caused a lot of stress to the family, and Warner's wife suffered a miscarriage after the SA tour.

The couple is already parents to two daughters - Ivy Mae (4) and Indi Rae (3).
