David Warner's alleged physical altercation with an England player hasn't gone down too well with Cricket Australia.
Cricket Australia (CA) advises that Australian batsman David Warner has been stood down from Australia’s ICC Champions Trophy match against New Zealand tonight after being reported for breaching the CA Code of Behaviour.

Warner has been reported for breaching Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour after he was allegedly involved in a physical altercation with an England player in the early hours of Sunday morning following the ICC Champions Trophy match between the teams in Birmingham.

Team management have stood down Warner pending the outcome of the hearing, meaning he will miss Australia’s match against New Zealand in Birmingham tonight.

Rule 6 states: Without limiting any other rule, players and officials must not at any time engage in behaviour unbecoming to a representative player or official that could (a) bring them or the game of game into disrepute or (b) be harmful to the interests of cricket.

CA will convene the Code of Behaviour as soon as possible. Details will be provided once the time and date is confirmed.
