Du Plessis: Warner & De Kock got a little personal on the field

David Warner has been hit with three demerit points and fined 75 per cent of his match fee after deciding not to contest the Level Two charges that came from his altercation with Quinton de Kock.

Warner shook hands with De Kock after Australia quickly closed out their 118-run victory on Monday, to take a 1-0 lead in the four-match series.

Australia and South Africa have until Thursday morning AEDT to officially respond to the reports, with both having the option to appeal.

Match referee Jeff Crowe is believed to be looking into the incident but there has been no comment yet from the International Cricket Council.

It was described by Australian media as a moment of reconciliation between the teams but Warner can expect little relief from the niggle by Proteas players for the rest of the series, according to former test all-rounder Brad Hogg.

Panellist and veteran News Corp cricket writer Robert Craddock said the footage needed to be shown, as it showed Warner's true nature on the cricket field.

David Warner has received the emphatic backing of Australia coach Darren Lehmann, who says the opening batsman will continue as vice-captain following his spat with Quinton de Kock. "Chat, banter, sledging has always been a part of any series between SA & Oz".

"If you're crossing the line, the umpires will intervene, and they didn't", the Tasmanian said.

"But Warner gets the suspension, and while he's responsible for his own actions and words, he's being allowed to do it by people above him".

Smith's version of events was disputed by South African manager Mohammed Moosajee, who blamed Warner.

The ICC were expected to make a finding by tonight, but the heat is on ahead of the second Test starting on Friday in Port Elizabeth.

Former England test captain Michael Vaughan, however, suggested Warner's rumoured track-record of aggressive sledging means there is no defence for his reaction to de Kock's reported taunt about his wife.

"I'm sure the captains will chat and the coaches will chat and we'll get away to play the game", Lehmann said.

"From what I've heard there was a lot of personal stuff being said, to and from".

The controversy has divided opinion, with Warne calling on the players to avoid "personal" comments - while also urging them to "have a beer together" and patch things up. If you are saying something you've got to take it and that's the opinion of Quinton.

"There was nothing we said that was inappropriate".
