Bad-boy Warne in trouble again

Cape Town - Cricket Australia (CA) on Wednesday advised that Shane Warne has been reported for breaching CA’s Code of Behaviour in Wednesday's T20 Big Bash League semi-final between the Melbourne Stars and Perth Scorchers.

Warne is alleged to have breached Rule 5: Laws of Cricket and Spirit of the Game.

On December 5 last year, Big Bash League teams were sent a memorandum by Cricket Australia. Under the heading “Over Rates”, the memo stated: “If a team’s official captain is selected but not named as captain, this will be considered against the spirit of cricket and may attract a code of behaviour charge.”

For Wednesday's match, won by the Perth Scorchers, James Faulkner was listed on the Melbourne Stars team sheet as captain and took part in the coin toss with Perth Scorchers captain Simon Katich. Warne had previously been issued with one strike for a slow over rate violation, with a second strike this season resulting in an automatic one-match suspension.

The time and date of the hearing is yet to be determined.

This follows recent controversies involving the great leg-spinner. Last week he was fined £500 after admitting driving at more than 100 miles (160km/h) on a south of Scotland motorway where the maximum speed is 70mph, while he was also involved in a heated on-field brawl with West Indian international Marlon Samuels.
