In the footage, Warner and de Kock are seen trailing behind most of the Australian team along with Paine and Aiden Markram as they walk through the shared stairwell to the two dressing rooms.

South Africa are understood to be disappointed Warner didn't receive a level- three charge from the ICC, something that would have meant he missed the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

Both players were charged with the same offence after video footage emerged online that showed Warner verbally attacking De Kock as the players left the field for tea on the fourth day.

Warner rejected South Africa's accusations that he subjected De Kock to personal abuse.

Proteas captain Faf du Plessis, whose side trail 1-0 in the four-Test series, won't rule out the idea of antagonising Warner to try to get another rage-fuelled reaction.

That's from someone who didn't "look [match referee Jeff Crowe] in the eye and say" what he had said because he declined a hearing where such details would have had to be disclosed.

Du Plessis chattered about Warner when the aggressive opener was batting on day three of the first Test, imploring teammates to feed off the batsman's "ego". Equally, Australia's on-field conduct has come under severe scrutiny over the years with players saying in the past they are willing to "head-butt the line", particularly during heated series such as the Ashes and clashes with India. Warner should be free to play the second Test, though will be on the brink of suspension if he errs again.

Former Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton won in three of those districts, which are considered competitive. The primaries - the first in the nation ahead of November's general election - set up a number of fascinating races.

Level 1 breaches carry a minimum penalty of an official reprimand, a maximum penalty of 50 percent of a player's match fee, and one or two demerit points.

"The other thing I should have said was that the umpires didn't object to anything that was said".

Although both teams have confirmed that there was verbal aggression on the field, the on-field umpires did not report anything, evoking scepticism from Gibson. "If they hear things on the field, they should clamp down on it". "I don't know how their team manager (Mohammed Moosajee) can hear from where he's sitting but from where I was, which was right near the whole time, there was nothing we said that was inappropriate". They are there to do a job and they must do their job.

"We will need to take a lot more responsibility with the bat".

Former West Indies player Gibson added: "I think everybody just needs to focus on cricket. I'm just relieved to be able to get back on the park and move on".

Australia won an epic Test in 1997 by two wickets, made famous by Ian Healy winning the match with a six, but South Africa returned the favour with a comprehensive 231-run victory in 2014.
