Warne punished for misbehaviour

Old habits die hard. Shane Warne may have quit international cricket but the old, wily fox remains the same intense fighter. He still wants to stay there and deliver the good for the team.

In Hampshire’s Championship match against Kent last week, Warne was not happy when umpire Tim Robinson upheld Ryan McLaren’s appeal. The leg before decision naturally did not amuse Warne, the Hampshire captain, who stood his ground for a few seconds and then gave Robinson the kind of petrifying stare. And that was not the end of it. As soon as he entered the pavilion, Warne let loose an audible obscenity.

Accordingly, he was fined six points under ECB's disciplinary code and he would be automatically suspended of he accumulates nine points or more.
