Cricket Australia is seeking professional advice on what the organisation believes is troubled batsman David Warner's drinking problem, a report said on Saturday.

The controversial opener was fined Aus$11,500 ($11,000) and suspended until the start of the Ashes by CA on Thursday for an incident in which he punched England batsman Joe Root in a Birmingham bar during the ongoing Champions Trophy.

The Sydney Daily Telegraph Saturday quoted Sutherland as saying CA were looking to examine Warner’s drinking issues further.

“I will be taking expert advice on that within the team to make sure, with our various professionals, to make some additional judgements on that to provide whatever support is necessary,” Sutherland said.
