In a freaky turn of events at Ashfield's Pratten Park in Australia, David Warner brought play at a Sydney Grade Cricket game to a temporary halt by walking off the field after being sledged.
Sportingnews reporter Brendan Banford, who was at the match, reported Warner told the umpire "I'm removing myself from the game" because of a sledge from the fielders.
Batting for Randwick-Petersham on his 32nd birthday during a fixture against Western Suburbs, Australia's sacked vice-captain asked for permission to leave the field.
Jason Hughes, the brother of late Australia batsman Phillip Hughes, is reported to be the player who came out with remarks that Warner felt crossed the line. But, it is believed that the Western Suburbs players allowed Warner to return to the crease as they didn't want him to end his innings in such a way. Dave warner, on 35, just walked off the field in the middle of the over.
The laws of the game state that once a batsman has left the field of play they cannot return, unless they retire with injury or illness, when they can come back at the fall of a wicket.Читайте также: Text leads to Mega Millions win for Virginia woman
Warner is now serving his one-year ban from worldwide and state cricket handed down by Cricket Australia in the wake of the Newlands ball-tampering controversy.
Warner was 114 not out after also making 155 last month for Randwick-Petersham in round one of the premier grade competition.
Warner recorded a century from 179 balls as the day progressed - his second in four appearances for the grade cricket club this season.
"He was very disappointed and hurt that something had been said to him that he took great offence at. Cricket Australia reinstate the legend", tweeted Dan Stapleton.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
