CCTV footage from the staircase leading to the dressing rooms at Kingsmead in Durban emerged on Monday morning.

It showed the Australia vice-captain and the South Africa wicketkeeper involved in a heated exchange at tea on day four of the first Test.

The incidence has got the entire cricketing fraternity talking, and both the cricket boards will look into the matter to figure out what exactly happened that ended in such an ugly situation.

Cricket Australia is investigating the matter to establish the facts that led to Warner becoming so hyper.

On the other hand, the South African authorities have confirmed that the match referee has been involved.

Proteas team manager Dr Mohammed Moosajee said:

“It’s rather unfortunate that the incident took place and certainly not in the spirit of the game. The match referee had spoken to us after the day’s play. We will await any further communication from the ICC around this incident.”
