WATCH – Warner’s heated words with De Kock

Australia’s David Warner and South Africa’s Quinton de Kock were both charged by the ICC for their stairwell confrontation in Durban, with both teams having until Wednesday to respond to the charge.

Both players were charged under the catch-all ICC code of conduct clause of “conduct that brings the game into disrepute,” following the episode that marred the Kingsmead Test, but Warner faces a more serious level 2 charge and de Kock a less serious level one.

The difference in levels means Warner could be banned for one Test, but the heaviest penalty de Kock faces is a fine.

The matter was debated in a meeting at the hotel being shared by the two teams in Port Elizabeth on Tuesday night, with the Australian and South African team managers Gavin Dovey and Mohammed Moosajee speaking with the match referee Jeff Crowe.
