Warner v de Kock spat exposes Australian sledging hypocrisy... again

Warner had heavy strapping on his left thumb and palm, which the the South Africans are alleging aids Warner in tampering with the condition of the ball.

Ahead of this series, the Australians had even gone to South African broadcaster SuperSport, requesting that the on field microphones be turned off, meaning viewers wouldn't have to be exposed to the obscenities bandied about during play.

"Questions will be asked".

Warner had donned the same bandages on day three of the second Test.

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.

In a statement issued on Saturday, Cricket South Africa distanced itself from the action of the officials, marketing manager Clive Eksteen and communications manager Altaaf Kazi.

CSA said Eksteen and Kazi were now subject to "internal processes".

Arrieta has started at least 30 games in three straight seasons, but he's only pitched more than 200 innings once - 229 in 2015. As Ashley mentioned earlier , Arrieta was expected to sign with a team this week as free agent dominoes finally begin to fall.

"On behalf of CSA, I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", CSA president Chris Nenzani said in a statement.

The statement urged South African supporters to refrain from "being involved in distasteful or unwelcome actions that may impact the image of the sport and its supporters".

Eksteen and Kazi are under investigation for associating themselves with the unsavoury attempt to embarrass Warner and wife Candice, who had attended day one at St George's Park with the couple's two children.

That incident is behind a fiery exchange between Warner and South Africa's Quentin de Kock during the First Test.

The Proteas supporters wore those masks in a bid to rile up Warner.

Candice Warner is with her husband on tour in South Africa and was at the ground on Friday with their two young daughters, according to Australian media, when the masks were being worn in the crowd.

It means the opener will automatically cop a suspension if charged by the ICC during the next two years.
