An angry David Warner was seen walking off the field midway into his innings after being sledged while batting for Randwick-Petersham against Western Suburbs at a Sydney Grade Cricket match Ashfield’s Pratten Park in Australia on Saturday.

David Warner scored a century last month

According to a report in news.com.au, the play was halted when Warner, who was batting in the 30s, was sledged by late cricketer Phil Hughes’ brother during a Sydney grade cricket match and immediately informed the umpires that he was walking out of the game. He left the field and only after some of his teammates convinced him to come back did Warner resume his innings. The Western Suburbs fielder Jason Hughes called Warner “a disgrace.”

There was confusion at the ground because once a batsman leaves the field of play during his innings, he cannot return to the crease, he returns after being retired hurt. However, the opposition team decided to allow the southpaw to return as they did not want him to be dismissed in this way.

David Warner, currently playing club cricket, is serving a 12-month suspension for his involvement in the infamous ball-tampering scandal during the Cape Town Test in March this year. He went on to score a century as Randwick-Petersham reached 156/2 in the 55th over.

A few days ago the, the legendary Australian spinner Shane Warne suggested that Australia will crave for the banned duo of Steve Smith and David Warner. He said, “By the time Smith and Warner are ready, Australia will be pleading to have them back, they are two of the top five best batsmen in the world. Australia desperately needs them. It’s going to be tough for them at first. Forgiveness takes time, but there’s nothing like making a couple of hundreds in a row and people thinking, ‘Oh, we’ve missed this guy’. They have to be aware that they’re in for a bit of a hostile time around the world until they’ve earned the respect back.”
