    Warner, for mine, does not have much between the lugs. That is apparent in his casual batting attitude at times and these continual brewhahas on and off the field.

    And next match at Port Elizabeth early reports are of another slow pitch.

    From Cricket Australia

    Nathan Lyon has been charged by the International Cricket Council for his involvement in the run out of AB de Villiers

    Lyon has been charged with a Level 1 breach, which could see the off-spinner fined up to 50 percent of his match and be given up to two demerit points to his record.

    Four points would result in missing a Test match.

    A Cricket Australia spokesperson said Lyon has been in touch with de Villiers to say there was no malice intended and apologised.

    Agreed, no place for it especially when it becomes personal, besides it takes away from the game, play it hard but fair.

    In Crowe's position I would have stamped on it and given both de Kock and Warner a Test Match or two suspension. Utterly disgraceful players having to pull them apart on the steps.

    They need to remember that when they are on the field they are representing their nations

    Unfortunately Australia has a reputation of being the worst when it comes to this crap

    Time to grow up lads

    Warner, de Kock charged by ICC


    Sam Ferris, in Port Elizabeth
    07 March 2018



    Australia vice-captain David Warner faces possible suspension from the second Test in Port Elizabeth after he was charged for his involvement in a stairwell altercation with Proteas gloveman Quinton de Kock at tea on day four of the first Test in Durban.

    Warner was judged to have breached Level 2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for bringing the game into disrepute, while de Kock was charged with a Level 1 offence for the same breach.

    A Level 2 charge brings with it 3-4 demerit points and up to 100 per cent fine of a player’s match fee.

    If a player accrues four demerit points in the space of 24 four months they are suspended for one Test match or two limited-overs internationals, whichever comes first.

    Both Australia and South Africa have until tomorrow to respond to the charges handed out by match referee Jeff Crowe.

    CCTV footage emerged on Sunday night showing Warner and de Kock trading verbal barbs in the stairwell outside the players’ dressing rooms as both teams made their way from the field for the tea break.

    Warner had to be physically restrained by his teammates after it was alleged de Kock made derogatory comments about the Australian’s wife.

    But in the wake of the incident, the Proteas camp declared both sides got personal on the field, a claim Australia captain Steve Smith denied after his side wrapped up a 118-run win at Kingsmead yesterday.

    "We were certainly very chirpy out on the field as well,” Smith told reporters on Monday.

    “As far as I'm aware we didn't get personal towards Quinton.

    "But look – what he said got a little bit personal towards Davey – and as we saw it certainly provoked an emotional response.

    "That's from my opinion – and what I've heard from the guys as well.

    "I'm not 100 per cent sure but as far as I'm aware I don't think we got personal."

    Whille Warner faces a possible suspension, de Kock will be free to play in the second Test. A Level 1 charge brings with it 1-2 demerit points and a fine of up to 50 per cent.

    Four players in the series, excluding Warner and de Kock, have demerit points on their records.

    Proteas seamer Kagiso Rabada has five demerit points on his record, Du Plessis has three points, while Australia's Tim Paine and Nathan Lyon have one point each.

    If Rabada, who was suspened for one Test against England last winter, is handed another three points before February next year he will suspended for up to two Tests or four ODIs/T20Is.

    Back to the trams.

    The Proteas must be disappointed Dale Steyn has not come back from injury for this Test.

    Will be interesting to see how the 2 teams behave in this test, Warner and de Kock already walking a fine line

    Hard to say who would be worse off if both played up and miss a test, deKock is a good keeper and a batsmen as well
