James Faulkner posts a picture with RR teammate Dishant Yagnik’s daughter

He may look like a studious geek, but Australian all-rounder James Faulkner is quite a character and is pretty active on the social media space. Faulkner’s Twitter banters with his Melbourne Stars’ teammate and good friend Kevin Pietersen has been a daily delight in the social media platforms, though the former being at the receiving end most of the times.

The Australian is in India, playing in the eighth edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) with Rajasthan Royals (RR). It is believed that Faulkner’s RR teammate Dishant Yagnik and his wife had gone for shopping and had left their daughter Dhanya with him.

During lunchtime, Faulkner posted a photograph on his official Instagram account of himself with Yagnik’s daughter Dhanya.

RR are on the top of the IPL standings with five wins in six matches and are currently playing against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) at Motera, Ahmedabad on Friday.
