Hours before returning to the Australian cricket team in its fourth ODI clash against India, David Warner was looking for his bat, which was allegedly stolen by a man selling it online.

So the cricketer -- who recently welcomed his second child, Indi Rae, into the world -- took matters into his own hands.

"Does anyone know this bloke. One of my bats have been taken from my bag and he is flogging it online," tweeted Warner on Wednesday morning.

It didn't take long for the culprit to be identified. After the tweet gained more than 370 retweets and 200 favourites Blair Neill was named and shamed.

But there were no hard feelings from the Australian batsman who clarified the bat was not indeed stolen, but borrowed briefly for the photo opportunity.

The prankster is now suggesting Warner was in on the joke the entire time, posting a screenshot of Warner's private message to his personal Facebook page.

Whether he did or didn't know, the country will forgive Warner as the batsman delivers a strong return to the series at Manuka Oval in Canberra.

And Twitter users have already moved on to the next debate; will Warner make 200?
