Disgraced Australian opener David Warner walked off the field mid-innings after being sledged during a Sydney grade game on Saturday, reports said. The former Test vice-captain, who is serving a 12-month ban from international and state cricket for his role in a ball-tampering scandal, was batting for his club Randwick-Petersham at the time.

He had moved into the 30s when the incident unfolded, news.com.au reported. The left-hander was apparently not happy with a jibe from an opposition player and told an umpire he was removing himself from the game. The nature of the sledge was not known. According to reports, a number of his teammates talked him into returning and he agreed after several minutes, going on to smash a century.
