Australian cricketer David Warner has apologised to Sheffield cricketer Joe Root on camera.
He admits hitting Root in the early hours of Sunday morning at the Walkabout bar in Birmingham.
The Australian cricket team has suspended David Warner until the first Ashes test and fined him £7000 for "unbecoming behaviour."
Australia batsman David Warner has been suspended from all cricket up to the first Ashes Test this summer and fined 11,500 Australian dollars after accepting a charge of unbecoming behaviour for an attack on England batsman Joe Root, Cricket Australia has confirmed.
Australia batsman David Warner is due before a disciplinary hearing this morning over allegations of an attack on England cricketer Joe Root.
Warner missed yesterday's Champions Trophy match with New Zealand as reports emerged that he attacked Root in Walkabout Bar in Birmingham in the early hours of Sunday.
England and Australia players had been in the bar after England's 48-run win at Edgbaston on Saturday.
Unusually for these kind of episodes, we know pretty much exactly what happened. A bunch of Australian and England cricketers went out to a bar in Birmingham after their match on Saturday.
At about 2am, David Warner threw a punch at one of the England players. It was completely unprovoked, and the man he picked on was the baby of the England team - 22-year-old Joe Root.
Warner has since apologised to Root in person and both sides say the matter is over, while Root was training at the Oval earlier and he looked OK.
The fact that Warner was seen carrying the drinks for his team-mates today suggests to me he'll be staying on the tour ahead of the Ashes.
Cricket fan and Free Radio Presenter, Adam Wilbourn, has told ITV Central that he was in Walkabout on Broad Street in Birmingham on Saturday evening.
He had his photograph taken with Stuart Broad, Joe Root and other stars and also saw many of the Australian team, including David Warner, arrive at the bar.
The Walkabout bar chain have released a statement confirming an incident took place at their bar in Birmingham involving Australian cricketer David Warner and England batsman Joe Root.
