Warner cleared for second test, De Kock to contest charge

Adjust Comment Print

Warner and South African wicketkeeper batsman, Quinton de Kock were involved in a heated altercation on the staircase leading up to the players dressing room during the tea interval on Day 4.

Another video from just before the incident surfaced on Wednesday showing Warner repeatedly calling De Kock a "sook", which is Australian slang for somebody that is perceived to be soft.

Meanwhile, Australian legend Shane Warne said players should stop "whinging" about sledging after an ugly row between Warner and de Kock clouded the first Test in Durban. The two have been charged under the clause of bringing "the game into disrepute", with Warner facing a more serious level-two charge than De Kock's level-one offence.

Warner has been fined 75 per cent of his match fee and given three demerit points.

In that sense, Warner faces a possible suspension from the second Test in Port Elizabeth and he could also be fined 100 per cent of his match fee from the first Test.

The war of words between Australia and South Africa - itself a product of a war of words between Warner and de Kock - has escalated quickly.
