Australian swashbuckling opener David Warner has been rested for the fourth One-Day International (ODI) against England at Hobart. Cameron White will replace Warner, while Shaun Marsh will replaced suspended Geroge Bailey.

Warner was involved in an on-field spat with Rohit Sharma during the second ODI at Melbourne Cricket ground (MCG). Later on, he was fined 50 per cent of his match fee for breaking International Cricket Council (ICC) code of conduct. He was found guilty and was heard repeatedly telling Rohit ‘Speak English’.

However, the 28-year-old defended himself for the act. He was quoted by Sky Sports Radio, “When I went over to say something to him, he sort of said something in their language and I said ‘speak English’ because, if you’re going to say something for me to understand, theoretically I cannot speak Hindi.”

Since then, Warner has received criticism from different sphere of the cricketing world. New Zealand great Martin Crowe called Warner “thuggish”.

Moreover, Cricket Australia has warned the southpaw and has asked him to stop looking for more trouble.
