CA warns Australia team members about ‘behavioral conduct’
Cricket Australia (CA) exposition David Warner’s latter behavior as unacceptable and warned all the team members for rest of the series against South Africa.
Warner was fined 75 percent of his match fees for the heated exchange with South African wicket keeper Quinton de Kock when the two sides walked off the field in the fourth day of the Durban Test.
Quinton de Kock was also fined 25 percent of his match fees; Warner accused him for making ‘disgusting’ comments about his wife.
Meanwhile, South African players remarked that David Warner’s comments in the field was also ‘personal.’
In a statement on Friday, CA Chief Executive James Sutherland said, “The events of day four in Durban have unfortunately marred an otherwise very good Test match and a dominant performance by the Australian men’s team.”
“Australia has always prided itself on taking a highly competitive approach to international cricket.
“This will not change, however CA is confident that what occurred in Durban will remain an aberration.”
“CA has reminded the team of the standards of behavior expected of players representing Australia,” Sutherland said.
“This includes the need to be respectful of opponents, and CA expects this to be observed by players at all times. Unfortunately neither team met this standard in Durban. The Australian team understands that fans expect better.”
