David Warner leaves field after being sledged in Australian Grade Cricket match

Disgraced Australian opener David Warner walked off the field mid-innings after being sledged during a Sydney grade game on Saturday, reports said.

Sportingnews reporter Brendan Banford, who was at the match, reported Warner told the umpire "I'm removing myself from the game" because of a sledge from the fielders.

Warner, playing for Randwick-Petersham in the clash against Western Suburbs, is understood to have been offended by a sledge from the opposition while batting.

Warner's action resulted in some confusion given that a batsman walking off the field of play is generally not permitted to return to the crease unless he had previously retired hurt. However, they used their commonsense to allow Warner to resume his innings after a few moments to compose himself with the Western Suburbs players happy to allow him to continue.

Warner remains one of the most polarising figures in Australian sport, as many observers and fans blame him for the ball tampering episode and the generally ugly culture of the Australian team before the incident back in March.

Warner is now serving his one-year ban from global and state cricket handed down by Cricket Australia in the wake of the Newlands ball-tampering controversy.

Warner was a close friend to Hughes, having played together from their junior cricket days right up to representing Australia together.

At a time when many doubted he could even face a ball, Warner scored an incredible 145 runs from 163 balls on the first day of the Test against India.
