Sydney, May 22 (IANS) Australia’s opening batsman David Warner was Wednesday found guilty of breaching the Cricket Australia (CA) Code of Behaviour and was fined $5,750 for his twitter rant.

Warner, who pleaded guilty, received the maximum financial penalty for a first offence under rule 6 of CA’s Code of Behaviour, CA said in a statement.

“In hindsight, clearly I let my frustrations get the better of me and posted some inappropriate tweets last weekend. While I disagreed with the story and my image being used alongside the story, I could have chosen my words better and I apologise for any offence that my language may have caused. I’ll continue to have honest conversations with all my followers and I will be mindful of the language I use in future,” said Warner.

At the hearing here, Justice Gordon Lewis, CA Senior Code of Behaviour Commissioner, found Warner guilty of breaching Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour regarding Twitter comments made by Warner at the weekend.
