David Warner is facing a Cricket Australia enquiry after attacking two noted Australian cricket writers on his Twitter page.
Robert Craddock wrote a critical article on the T20 League, following the spot-fixing scandal that shook the cricket world and in response to that Warner, who plays for Delhi Dardevils, launched a series of abusive tweets.
Warner called Craddock a Pr*** who writes s*** and also described the other coloumnist Malcolm Conn an old f***.
Warner wrote to Craddock, saying,"Shock me @crashcraddock1 talking shit about ipl jealous p****. Get a real job. All you do is bag people. #getalife."
"@TheStooge2 @crashcraddock1 All he did was talk s*** about the greats now he s**** up there a**. Talk more crap why don't you," read one of his tweets.
"Wow @crashcraddock1 some smart journo who thinks he can bring Down people. Well done CHAMP!!," read another.
To Conn, Warner wrote," @malcolmconn are you still talking you old f***, no wonder know one buys your paper." In another tweet he wrote,"@malcolmconn have a look at you, your a fool writing back thinking your talking to a wannabe cricketer haha." The explosive series of tweets was noted by Australia's Cricket Board and they issues a statement that they will investigate the matter.
