David Warner to face disciplinary hearing over Twitter rant

Melbourne: Australia opening batsman David Warner will face a disciplinary hearing for his Twitter outburst against two senior Australian cricket journalists, the country's cricket board said on Sunday.

The flamboyant left-handed batsman criticised News Limited journalists Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn in an expletive-filled tirade, which grabbed headlines in Australia.

The 26-year-old has been charged with breaking the code of behaviour which pertains to "unbecoming behaviour, regarding comments posted on his Twitter account," Cricket Australia said in a statement.

Several Australian media outlets published Warner's tweets in which he criticised a story by Craddock before he embarked on a running battle with Conn, who had come to the defence of his colleague.

The timing and the date of the hearing will be determined on Monday, the CA statement added.
