David Warner and Quinton De Kock have been in the headlines for last 48 hours after their heated sledging battle in the 1st test match at Durban. Since the ugly on-field spat, Warner has been fined 75% of his match fee while De Kock has received a 25% fine on his match fee.
It was an instance where everyone has framed an opinion as no one exactly has an idea what necessarily happened between Warner and De Kock. It is something we will continue to talk about in the ongoing series and we will definitely hear a lot about the issue as tempers had flared between both sets of players and has many on their edge before the start of next test match.
A day before the start of 2nd test match between South Africa and Australia, a new video has surfaced which shows the extent of Warner’s anger as he came back 2 or 3 times looking to pick a fight with Quinton de Kock after the South African wicketkeeper appeared to have used inappropriate language against David Warner.
David Warner claims Quinton de Kock had made a comment about his the Australia veteran’s wife, “that was vile and disgusting”.
After days of speculation, David Warner has finally broken his silence on the matter and the Aussie vice-captain has said that De Kock said “Vile and Disgusting” about his wife which was out of line and he had to step in to defend the dignity of his family.
As reported by Sky Sports, David Warner said: “The other day I was probably out of line,” he said. “I’ve seen the footage and I regret the way it played out but for me – it is how I am and I responded emotionally and regretted the way I played out.”
“I’ll always stick up for my family. I cop it left, right and centre, especially off the field from spectators. I am used to that and it doesn’t bother me.”
“But in the proximity of my personal space and behind me, a comment that was vile and disgusting and about my wife and just in general about a lady, (it) was quite poor, I felt.”
“When it comes to family or racism comments or anything like that, that’s just a no-go zone.”
The second test between South Africa and Australia starts on Friday, 9th February and Warner will need to be at his best behavior after receiving 3 demerit points which mean that any repeat of his behavior in next 12 months will lead a direct 1-match ban and even severe consequences for the Australian opener.
