Aussies have always been aggressive about their cricket and they have never shied away from indulging in wars of words on the field. Even in the ongoing test series between Australia and South Africa, the first of which Australia won today, a lot of heated arguments were fired.

The Aussies have taken a lead in the ongoing series having won the first game by 118 runs. The first test at Kingsmead Durban was won comprehensively by Australia with Mitchel Starc bagging the man of the match award.
THE FIRST TEST: NOT REALLY THE GENTLEMEN’S GAME
First, we saw how David Warner gave a send back to AB De Villiers when the stalwart batsman got run out. David Warner who seemed to have calmed down in recent times unleashed the beast within yet again and was seen at his aggressive best. David Warner was seen being calmed down by teammates Steve Smith and others.
In another incident, a CCTV footage captured David Warner’s outrage being unleashed on Quinton De Cock while the players were making their way back for tea. In this video at the staircase of the dressing room, David Warner can be seen all charged up and lashing onto Quinton De Cock. He was held back by his teammates who tried to calm him down.
Cricket Australia in an official statement said that they would probe the matter. Here’s what an official from Cricket Australia said
“CA is aware of reports of an incident between players in Durban. CA is working to establish the facts of what has occurred and will not be commenting further until that has been done.”
Here Is The Video
David Warner is no saint but if he is this fired up, very likely that something nasty must have been said by Quinton de Kock. Will be interesting to know the whole story. #SAvAUS pic.twitter.com/uHpT7jUVUO
