CA asks Warner to step aside following altercation
Sydney: Australian opening batsman David Warner will not play the Champions Trophy fixture against New Zealand in Edgbaston.
According to a Cricket Australia press release, Warner was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with an England player in the early hours of Sunday morning following the ICC Champions Trophy match between the teams in Birmingham.
He has been asked to step aside till an investigation is complete. If reports are to be believed, the English player in question is Joe Root.
Warner has been in trouble with Cricket Australia for the second time in two weeks following his expletive-laden rant on Twitter for which he was fined 5750 dollars last month.
According to the report, although CA officials had claimed that Warner did not drink towards the end of the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) in India, IPL sources have claimed that they were aware of Warner's regular drinking, adding that he had flown three of his school mates to India during the Twenty20 tournament to keep him company.
Both Warner and the Delhi Daredevils struggled and Warner has hardly managed a run since he has been in England preparing for the Champions Trophy, the report added.
