Cricket Australia chief executive James Sutherland has announced that opening batsman David Warner “needs to stop looking for trouble”.
Sutherland’s comments come after Warner was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for verbally abusing India batsman Rohit Sharma. During the incident, Warner was heard telling Sharma to “speak English”.
“He has worked very hard on his leadership and behaviour over the past 12 months and I have told him very clearly that instances like this only serve to set back the progress he has made,” Sutherland said. “Quite simply, he needs to stop looking for trouble. This is the second time he has been before the ICC match referee this season and that’s twice too often.”
