Town - David
Warner has been involved in another staircase altercation
... this time with a spectator at Newlands.
The incident happened on Friday
afternoon as Warner was making his way back to the pavilion having been bowled
by Kagiso Rabada in quite spectacular fashion.
Rabada had sent Warner's
off-stump cartwheeling backwards, but not before the Australian opener had
smashed 30 off just 14 balls.
As Warner was walking up the
staircase towards the Australian dressing room, a man clapped him off the
What the man said is not clear,
but it was enough to rile the left-hander.
Warner immediately turned towards
the man and said something back before heading off back up the stairs.
Cricket South Africa (CSA) have
since confirmed to Sport24 that
the man in the video has been removed from the stadium, while extra security
guards were placed on the staircase after the incident.
It was Warner's staircase
altercation with Quinton de Kock during the first Test in Durban that started a
series of off and on field issues in the series.
The incident remined of the
infamous incident involving Merv Hughes, who in 1994 clashed with a South
African fan on the Wanderers staircase.
