In latest developments from South Africa, the Australian cricket team officially filed a complaint after a spectator approached David Warner on the way to the dressing room at Cape Town.

Australia’s coach Darren Lehmann suggested that the Kangaroos are in no mood to slide the issue under the carpet as the instance comes under the bracket of family and personal abuse.

You are talking about abuse of various players and their families and personal abuse,” said Lehmann. It’s not on at a cricket game. not just here, it shouldn’t happen. You can have banter, that’s good fun, but it’s gone too far here,” claimed Darren Lehmann during the post-match presentation.

There have been various incidents throughout the Test series but this one has taken the cake. We have lodged an official complaint with South African cricket. we will see what happens,” added Lehmann.

That’s not good enough from an Australian crowd point of view either. We’ve just got to better at watching the game of cricket, supporting both teams.” quoted Morne Morkel.

Furthermore, Morkel termed the crowd at Wanderers as ‘amazing’ and such incidents occur due to the influence of alcohol.

When we play in Australia, I’ve played in Melbourne, I’ve copped the same sort of abuse. I think it’s part of the game but there is a line. it’s important not to cross that. Unfortunately, there is a bit of alcohol and hot sun and those sort of things,” suggested the man who recently scalped 300 Test wickets for his country.
