A video of Cricket Australia chairman James Sutherland opining on the controversial foul-mouthed spat between Shane Warne and Marlon Samuels in a Big Bash match on Sunday.

Cricket Australia 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.

The veteran leg-spinner was sanctioned for dissent at an umpire's decision, using obscene language and deliberate physical contact.

But he was cleared of another charge of throwing the ball at or near the West Indian in an "inappropriate and/or dangerous manner".
