South Africa vs Australia: 2nd Test Preview

David Warner Australia

David Warner Australia

Australia vice-captain David Warner has finally revealed what transpired between him and South Africa wicket-keeper Quinton de Kock outside the Kingsmead dressing rooms during the fourth day of the first Test in Durban.

"For the Aussies, it is in their psyche and having lived in Australia full time for almost 12 years I've been seeing how players react at club cricket and as a media personnel watching it and seeing it unfold".

Cricket Australia's (CA) digital arm has stepped in to provide coverage in New Zealand of the remainder of the ongoing Test series between Australia and South Africa.

"We've seen so many different things of late", he said. Graeme Pollock, Jonty Rhodes and AB de Villiers (4 in a row) are the other three players with fifty-plus scores in three consecutive Test innings in Port Elizabeth.

In the incident, a clearly angry Warner had to be restrained by teammates as he argued with de Kock.

Lungi Ngidi (3/51) and Vernon Philander (2/25) supported Rabada well. Four days on, the fallout continued, with Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland releasing a statement before play started in Port Elizabeth reminding the Australian players they needed to behave.

Match referee Jeff Crowe, having implored both captains to improve the behaviour of their respective sides after handing out three charges in the wake of a spiteful series opener, faces a big decision.

"Hopefully I can speak to him in the next couple of days, or after the game, or after the series", he said.

"Under the period of the current team leadership, Australian players have received fewer sanctions under the ICC Code of Conduct than players from the majority of the nine top-ranked Test playing nations". "There are quite a bit of learning opportunities for us to take going forward", South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said.

Mar, 2018: Gave David Warner a send-off in Durban that caught the attention of both umpires.

Despite South Africa being the hosts, the fiery bowling attack of Australia which comprises of Mitchell Starc, Josh Hazlewood, Pat Cummins and Nathan Lyon make them the favourites to topple the Proteas yet again.

The incident happened after Rabada scalped Smith's crucial wicket for 25 and celebrated the victory by brushing his shoulder against the departing skipper.
