Aussie cricketer David Warner shows his aggressive side

AUSTRALIA opener David Warner is known for his aggression on the cricket field, and he is quickly becoming known for the same off the pitch.

Warner was a notable omission from last night's Champions Trophy clash against New Zealand at Edgbaston, with reports emerging he allegedly punched England batsman Joe Root, while out drinking.

The 26-year-old was reported for breaching Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour, in the early hours of Sunday morning after Australia's one-dayer against England.

Warner was fined $5750 last month for an expletive-laden Twitter rant, reports emerging he regularly drank alcohol in the recent IPL tournament in India.
