Walkabout confirms Joe Root involved in David Warner incident

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.

"David Warner and Joe Root were in our VIP area between 1.30am and 2.30am on Sunday along with several other England and Australia team members. None of the group seemed to have been drinking to excess, and all were just having a good time.

"There was a small altercation between Warner and Root, but this was dealt with very amicably and quickly by the rest of the group, and both were calmly chatting to each other again immediately afterwards. They all left a short while later, and the small bar tab was picked up by David Warner."
