Warner, de Kock charged after stairwell dispute in Durban

Warner, de Kock charged after stairwell dispute in Durban

The CCTV footage, which was taken from the players' tunnel at the Kingsmead, showed the players from both the teams making their way to the respective dressing rooms during the tea session.

Australia have long had a reputation for attempting to unsettle opposition players with words as well as actions, but Paine says there was a line the team would not cross.

"I don't think it was personal at all, but Faf can say what he likes I guess". On both sides! But agreed not a good look. "There's going to be times when people can let their emotions get the better of themselves, it's part of playing the global game and playing at such a high intensity and with everything that comes with playing worldwide sport", he said.

Gilchrist was especially vocal about David Warner, Australia's vice-captain, for not projecting the image of a leader after his altercation with de Kock.

"I think it needs to be considered how to react in certain scenarios and learn from the scenarios". People will be sent off because cricket has to regain its manners, it's now an ill-mannered game and unfortunately we are at the forefront of that.

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

"If this is not sorted out by the ICC at this hearing I reckon what you do is you charge both captains and then you see what happens".

The sport's governing body can also charge players, as was the case when ICC chief David Richardson booked du Plessis for using a mint to shine the ball in Hobart. Du Plessis was fined 100% of his match fee but received massive support from team-mates and the opposition, with Smith saying such practices were common.

In 2015, Ricky Ponting pointed out that the hostile way in which the Australians played was intrinsic to their success, and to try to change that would only hurt results. "As far as I am aware we didn't get personal toward Quinton", Smith said in the post-match press conference.

The 33-year-old also claimed that De Kock did bring up the topic of Warner's wife during their spat.

Ever since Lehmann replaced Mickey Arthur as coach in mid-2013, the Australian side has been given full backing by the CA board and the chief executive James Sutherland to play the way they believe will gain the best results.

South Africa eventually lost the first Test by 118 runs on Monday as Australia took a mere 20 minutes and 22 balls to knock over the last wicket to take a vital lead.

When de Villiers was run out after a mix up with Aiden Markram, Warner and Nathan Lyon were involved in a controversy over their reactions to the dismissal.
