Australia's Lyon fined over De Villiers incident

Australia's Lyon fined over De Villiers incident

Australia require just one wicket to take a 1-0 lead in the four-Test series after setting South Africa 417 for victory. While everything seemed to go well in the match, a few acts from the Australian players irked the South African fans. He tried to run a quick single but was sent back and then found himself short of his crease as fielder David Warner threw the ball at the bowler's end where Nathan Lyon whipped off the bails. We were certainly very chirpy out in the field as well. This was captured on a CCTV camera and leaked later on.

"Once he was run out the emotions that came from David Warner were quite natural because he knew it was a big wicket", Katich told SEN Radio. Things were heated up quite a lot during the fourth day and there was a continuous exchange of words between players of both the sides.

Warner's run out of de Villiers was the big talking point out of a dramatic day of play. The Aussie vice-captain is reported to have spewed some unceremonious words at ABD and also Markram.

The video shows Warner being restrained by Australia batsman Usman Khawaja and spin bowler Nathan Lyon as he directs a verbal barrage at De Kock, who left the field as South Africa's not-out batsman at the same time as the Australians. "The Aussies were pretty fired up at that time pushing for a victory". "But he (Lyon) is an experienced cricketer. I think it needs to be considered how to react in certain scenarios and learn from the scenarios". "What he said got a little bit personal towards Davey and, as we saw, it certainly provoked an emotional response". "It's best just to let him be", Smith added.

Former Australian wicketkeeper Adam Gilchrist was not impressed with Warner's behaviour and said the Australian vice-captain did not project the image of a leader. "Not a good look all round".

Smith responded Gilchrist's tweet by stating, "Warner crossed many personal boundaries with the South Africans, so we can't be surprised when there is eventually a reaction". If players are happy to give it, they have to be prepared to take it, too.

"It's very hard to comment on the detail of it, but no denying that some of the parts of the celebration of the run-out of De Villiers is not a very good look".
