David and Candice Warner are the latest high-profile sporting couple to complete the ‘flick the switch’ challenge, swapping clothes on Tik Tok in a video that’s gone viral.

The Aussie cricket star and former ironwoman have been spending a lot more time inside during the coronavirus crisis - documenting their adventures on social media.

David and Candice have been showing off their best dance moves and posting the videos to prove it - mostly to keep their young daughters entertained.

But their latest (and best) effort didn’t feature any children.

David Warner uploaded a video on Monday showing himself and wife Candice decked out in their respective cricket and surf lifesaving gear.

But halfway through the video they ‘flick the switch’ and suddenly Candice is wearing the Australian cricket uniform and David is dressed in a women’s one-piece swimsuit.

Candice later posted a photo of the couple in their new get-up, sparking a flood of replies on Instagram.

“It’s very aggressive in the front area,” former Aussie player Mitchell Johnson wrote about David’s swimsuit.

Roxy Jacenko said: “Omg this is hysterical.”

While Aussie swimmer Shayna Jack commented: “Hahaha this is awesome.”

Alex Rodriguez and Jennifer Lopez were one of the first celebrity couples to go viral with the ‘flick the switch’ challenge, followed shortly by American swimmer Ryan Lochte and his wife.

Aussie cricketers facing brutal pay cuts

Australian Test cricket captain Tim Paine says players won't be greedy, as they wait to find out if they will be asked to take a pay cut.

Cricket Australia has stood down the vast majority of its staff for the rest of the financial year, citing uncertainty created by COVID-19, and is in talks with the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) regarding players' pay.

The Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) dictates that CA must, by April 30, provide the ACA with a list of national contracts plus revenue estimates for 2020-21.

Wicketkeeper Paine said the players knew they would get less pay because of the revenue sharing model they have in place with CA.

He agreed however that the players needed to get a clearer idea of CA's financial position before agreeing to any further cuts.

“Players need to know the absolute financial positions of the game and the players aren't going to be greedy,” Paine said on ABC Radio recently.

“Our livelihood, all the people associated with the ACA and the players association, their livelihood is dependent on the game of cricket being healthy.

“So at the moment if a pay cut for us is on the cards and that keeps our game thriving well into the future, then that's something we'll certainly have to look at.”
