“It’s added an extra 10% motivation to the guys following the comments he has made”
South Africa head coach Russell Domingo is the latest person to enter the fray of the controversial remarks made by Australia opener David Warner about Proteas wicketkeeper-batsman AB de Villiers potentially tampering with the ball during the second Test in Port Elizabeth.
Warner accused de Villiers of deliberately roughing up one side of the ball during the match, however Domingo stated that Warner’s allegations were “disappointing”.
“It’s disappointing when guys throw these accusations around,” Domingo said. “It’s added an extra 10% motivation to the guys following the comments he has made.
“We pride ourselves on playing the game as hard as we can, but also in a fair manner. I just don’t think it is a nice comment to make, I don’t think teams should be accusing other sides of that.”
