Cricket Australia (CA) tonight advises that Australian batsman David Warner has been found guilty of breaching the CA Code of Behavior.
Warner, who pleaded guilty, received a $5,750 fine, the maximum financial penalty for a first offence under rule 6 of CA’s Code of Behavior.
At the hearing tonight, CA Senior Code of Behavior Commissioner, The Hon. Justice Gordon Lewis AM, found Warner guilty of breaching Rule 6: Unbecoming Behavior regarding Twitter comments made by Warner at the weekend.
Following the adjudication, David Warner said: “In hindsight, clearly I let my frustrations get the better of me and posted some inappropriate tweets last weekend. While I disagreed with the story and my image being used alongside the story, I could have chosen my words better and I apologize for any offence that my language may have caused. I’ll continue to have honest conversations with all my followers and I will be mindful of the language I use in future.”
