Controversial Australian batsman David Warner said yesterday that heated on-field exchanges with a South African rival in Pretoria were "friendly banter".

“Great to be back playing cricket, had lots of fun this week and a bit of friendly banter from the wicketkeeper.

Was very funny!” Warner tweeted. Meanwhile, Cricket Australia declined to intervene, saying in a statement that “no report has been filed by the umpires and no action will, therefore, be taken”.

The exchanges became so heated on Saturday that Vaughn van Jaarsveld had to pull Tsolekile away from Warner, who was sent to Africa to sort out batting and behaviour issues.
