David Warner's response to tape conspiracy

David Warner's response to tape conspiracy”

South African officials have come under fire for posing with fans wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks, in a move which was meant to provoke David Warner following last week's ugly dressing room fracas between the Australian vice-captain and South Africa's Quinton de Kock.

Warner's wife was involved in a tryst with New Zealand rugby player Sonny Bill Williams over 10 years ago.

"CA appreciates the swift response, including the honest apology from CSA, and the seriousness with which the matter is being treated".

Not only should those masks have been banned from the stadium, what made matters worst was the fact that two CSA officials actually went ahead and clicked photographs with the notorious fans.

The mother-of-two celebrated her 32nd birthday on Tuesday, and her cricket star husband, David Warner, made sure to pay tribute to "his rock" with a sweet post on social media. De Kock admitted to saying something in a hearing that took place on Wednesday and was fined 25% of his match fee with one demerit point added to his record.

According to both the Australianand Channel 9, South Africa's batsmen complained to umpires about taping on Warner's left hand.

David Warner knew all eyes would be on his controversial hand tape on day three in Port Elizabeth, so he used the opportunity to send a message of his love to his family.

There has been widespread condemnation of the Williams masks, with Australian netball icon Liz Ellis fuming on the Nine Network.

"I responded emotionally and regretted the way I played out", he said between Tests. It upsets me to the core because sport is a real driver in society.

"It is disgraceful. It is upsetting". "On behalf of CSA, I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", the CSA said in a statement, "CSA does not associate itself with these actions and urges all Protea supporters from refraining from being involved in distasteful or unwelcome actions that may impact the image of the sport and its supporters". CSA has apologised in a statement, but at this stage nobody from the sporting organisation has spoken directly with David or Candice.
