With blood gushing from his face, he needed hospital treatment.<br /> <br /> <a href="/tags/CA/post" target="_blank">Cricket Australia </a>on Monday charged both players with multiple breaches of its code of behaviour and in Warne's case found him guilty of three of four offences.<br /> <br /> The veteran leg-spinner was sanctioned for dissent at an umpire's decision, using obscene language and deliberate physical contact.<br /> <br /> But he was cleared of another charge of throwing the ball at or near the West Indian in an "inappropriate and/or dangerous manner".<br /> <br /> Samuels faces two breaches -- deliberate physical contact and unbecoming behaviour, but it is not clear when the charges will be heard as he is nursing a suspected serious eye injury.<br /> <br /> Stars' batsman <a href="/tags/Cameron-White/post" target="_blank">Cameron White</a> was also charged with dissent and received a suspended Aus$1,000 fine in a game the Renegades won by nine wickets in front of a record Australian domestic Twenty20 crowd of 46,581.<br /> Warne, who cannot play in his team's Tuesday night clash against Sydney Thunder in Melbourne, claimed he had been harshly treated.<br /> <br /> "For me as the Melbourne Stars (captain) I'm very conscious of the image of the game," he told reporters after the hearing.<br /> <br /> "I'm disappointed in some of my actions last night. Also I'm pretty disappointed with the severity of the penalties too. I think that was pretty harsh."<br /> <br /> Stars' chief executive Clint Cooper said the club was considering its legal options.
