AgenciesMelbourne: Australia vice-captain David Warner has said a 'vile and disgusting' sledge about his wife from South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock was the trigger for his angry outburst in the players' tunnel during the Durban Test. In comments likely to strain already frosty relations between the teams, Warner put the blame for the incident squarely on De Kock's shoulders. "But in a proximity of my personal space and from behind me, a comment that was vile and disgusting about my wife, and in general about a lady, was quite poor I felt. Although held back by four different teammates during his verbal attack on De Kock, Warner said he did not intend to get physical with him. Warner and De Kock are yet to formally speak since the incident but the Australian opener said he hoped to break the ice at some point in the near future.
