Earlier, in this series, David Warner and Quinton de Kock had verbal off-field fights where Warner claimed that the South African wicketkeeper insulted his wife.

Later that incident, two Cricket South Africa (CSA) executives had worn Sonny Bill Williams’ mask along with few fans. The centre stage of that incident was Candice’s tryst with Sonny Bill Williams over 10 years ago, even when she had not met with David Warner.

During this series, both David and Candice have faced verbal attacks from the South African fans continuously.

Speaking of the whole incident, Candice told Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph, “I feel like it’s all my fault and it’s killing me — it’s absolutely killing me.”

Talking about her husband David, she said, “protecting me as much as he could and protecting the girls (their children). But Dave would come home from the game and see me in tears in the bedroom, and the girls just looking at their mum, it’s been heart-breaking.

“When we were in Cape Town and Port Elizabeth, Dave would come home and, yes, I always put on a strong front and I turn out to the games.

“But seeing them wearing the masks, to have people staring and pointing and laughing at me, to have the signs, to have, you know, the songs made up about me, I would have to sit there and cop that.”

Candice also requested to the Australian fans for sympathy and patience.

During the recent press conference, David Warner skipped answering when he was asked whether the ball-tampering was actually his plan or he became the scapegoat.

Candice said on that, “I’m sure there were things he wanted to say but he just couldn’t get it out. He is hurting. He is seriously, seriously struggling and he’s not in a great headspace.”
