Shane Warne is at it again. A few days after he was caught smoking in the nets in Durban, he reportedly gulped down beer while fielding in their match against Royal Challengers Bangalore here on Thursday.
A TV grab is said to have caught Warne accepting a glass filled with some drink from one of the spectators while coming out of the field at the time of strategy break. It, however, couldn’t be confirmed whether it was beer or any other drink.
