Australian cricketer David Warner will kick off the fourth Test Match against India in Sydney on Friday. 

And as the players remain in a strict bio-secure bubble amid the coronavirus pandemic, the 34-year-old has missed out on celebrating his daughter's fifth birthday. 

On Thursday, the proud father shared a virtual happy birthday message and tribute to the youngster on Instagram.

David shares three daughters with wife Candice Warner: Ivy-Mae, six, Indi-Rae, five, and Isla Rose, one.

'Very big happy birthday to our gorgeous funny and energetic girl Indi. We love you lots and lots and hope you have a good day,' he wrote. 

'Sorry daddy can’t be there with you,' he added.  

It's not the first time David's sporting commitments  have kept him away from his family.

David had just completed two weeks of mandatory hotel quarantine at the time after competing in the Indian Premier League in the UAE.

The Indian Premier League had started on September 19, and he left Sydney in mid August.

It meant he also missed his daughter Ivy Mae turn six.

Before the Indian Premier League, he had been away for a white-ball series in England.

In November, Candice shared how hard it had been without David in an emotional Instagram post.

'For close to four months now it's just been me and my little girl gang at home while my darling husband @davidwarner31 has been overseas playing cricket. Fingers crossed that this time next week we will be a gang of five again. We miss you daddy!!' she wrote.

Just a month earlier in October she also shared a 34th birthday tribute to David after they were unable to celebrate it together.
