Just to say: glad that Markram made such a good go of his first Test, esp the second knock.

Not only for him (good for him, in both senses), but it should give the hosts some heart for a tighter series. At one stage it looked as if it might be a bad souffle'.

Was referring to a rare Taipan post on the series.

Agree entirely with your comments about Marky Mark!

skully wrote:GCS facing a match ban

"Australia vice-captain David Warner faces possible suspension from the second Test in Port Elizabeth after he was charged for his involvement in a stairwell altercation with Proteas gloveman Quinton de Kock at tea on day four of the first Test in Durban.

Warner was judged to have breached Level 2 of the ICC Code of Conduct for bringing the game into disrepute, while de Kock was charged with a Level 1 offence for the same breach.

A Level 2 charge brings with it 3-4 demerit points and up to 100 per cent fine of a player’s match fee."


-----------------------

Aus and SAf have today to respond.

Lettuce leaf or sledgehammer?

Yes, this was just reported on the wireless. Who really expected Warner to be expected?  They haven't really the balls to deal with him or de Kock.

Interesting to note though I haven't heard any electronic support or read any in print for Warner from Aussie fans. It seems the bogan is not universally loved.

Anyway he seems to have an issue with Root and de Kock.

Vision of Warner calling de Kock an effing sook, just look at you you effing sook, before the players entered the tunnel.

This followed after he reportedly unleashed on him for an hour before the tea break.

Red your second last post badly needs a spot of editing.

Telling that even the usual tiresome gaggle of 'Test cricket's tuf and so am I!!!' chest-thumpers have been fairly mute this time.

Warner fined 75 per cent of his match fee (approximately $13,500) and given three demerit points.

Think the fines are meaningless, but Warner will have to be on his guard from now on.

He's in the same situation as Rabada whom the Aussies vowed to rile during Durban to endeavour to push him over the precipice.

Anyone like to try and explain to me, how pushing an opposing player over the precipice, is in any way close to the spirit of cricket?

So the cabbage will be slapped with a parboiled lettuce leaf.

Lalor claimed gcspoc was simply performing the role in the field requested of him by management. Leaving a pot of custard over high heat on an unattended stove is not really responsible.

Exactly. So let's forget about it and let the umpires apply the rules. First personal sledge you get an official warning. Second, you are chucked out of the game.

It's not.  The spirit of cricket is something which stays in theory as a sound philosophy.

Some have labelled this bizarre.

Meanwhile the Aussies are worrying that Warner will now be walking the suspension tightrope, however, the following almost confirms that Warner was behaving like a cock.....Australian teammates desperately want Warner to continue in his aggressive role as on-field attack dog, but losing a player with his match-turning abilities creates an uneasy balance with the heat on the opener like never before.

The ABDV/Lyon/Markram incident prior to de Kock's entry appears to be the catalyst for all this. Lyon and Warner's behaviour was gratuitous here.
