Summary

  • MELBOURNE (Reuters) – Footage of David Warner being restrained by team mates in an off-field fracas with South Africa’s Quinton de Kock has been viewed dimly in Australia, where former players have urged the vice-captain to rein in the raging ‘Bull’.
  • Australia’s David Warner reacts as he walks off the ground after being dismissed by England’s James Anderson during the second day of the fifth Ashes cricket test match.
  • The South African camp retorted that whatever was said was payback for Warner’s own aggressive sledging of De Kock and other Proteas players out on the field.
  • Warner was involved in another unsightly incident on the field during the opening test in Durban, when he unleashed a withering verbal spray at Aiden Markram after the rookie opening batsman was culpable in running out AB de Villiers in the South Africa’s second innings.
  • It was described by Australian media as a moment of reconciliation between the teams but Warner can expect little relief from the niggle by Proteas players for the rest of the series, according to former test all-rounder Brad Hogg.
