Also, the former cricketers have been partial towards their own countrymen. Australian skipper Steven Smith expressed his views on the incidence and said that the De Kock had provoked the Australian opener by passing some personal comments.

On the other hand, former South African captain Graeme Smith said that Warner is experiencing a dose of his own medicine.

Warner is known for his personal jibes at opposition players. Smith said that this had to happen.

He feels he has tested player’s patience in the past and this reaction by De Kock is not a surprise.

Michael Vaughan and Paul Harris also chipped in with their views and backed the South African wicket-keeper.

Moreover, they said that Warner should be prepared for such comments as he does such similar things.
