Australian cricket’s situation is going from bad to worst by the day. After stepping down from vice-captaincy following ball tampering row, David Warner has managed to irk his teammates even further. According to report published in foxsports.com.au, Warner was seen partying with non cricket mates that has upset his Australian teammates. Few Australian players are reportedly set to have asked CA to remove Warner from the hotel.

The reports also mentions that Warner has removed himself from the Australia’s Test WhatsApp group. It is being believed that Warner was the ring leader of the whole ball tampering episode that shocked cricket to its roots.  “Fairfax Media has been told that Smith and Warner in particular can expect to be sidelined for ‘a stretch of time’,” Foxsports quoted a source. CA Head of Integrity Iain Roy is said to have interviewed Steven Smith, Warner and Darren Lehmann.

It further states, “Those in the hierarchy at CA have been made aware of suggestions that the vice-captain was the chief conspirator and that Smith foolishly agreed.  Sources close to Warner, however, deny that he was the instigator.”
