The masks were a reference to an encounter Warner's wife Candice had with Williams at a Sydney pub in 2007. "They said 'let's take a photo with you guys", Kazi said.

Cricket South Africa (CSA) has distanced itself from the alleged action of certain officials in associating themselves with fans wearing masks representing the face of Sonny Bill Williams, which is related to the Warner-De Kock incident.

He is now a figure of hate in South Africa after his confrontation with South Africa wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock in a fractious first test in Durban last weekend.

Not only should those masks have been banned from the stadium, what made matters worst was the fact that two CSA officials actually went ahead and clicked photographs with the notorious fans.

Alerted on social media that the masks were going to be brought to the game on Friday, the Australians wanted security measures taken.

"On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia, its officials, team management, players and their families", CSA President Chris Nenzani was quoted as sating by ESPNcricinfo.

"On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", he said.

Gov. Scott signs compromise gun control bill
The legal basis for firearm possession in the United States is enshrined in the Second Amendment of the Constitution. Seventeen students were killed when a former student walked onto the premises and opened fire using an AR-15 rifle.

Eksteen is CSA's head of commercial and marketing, while Kazi is the body's head of communications.

CSA though understood the seriousness of the matter and released an apology statement to Cricket Australia (CA) and David Warner over the same.

Candice Warner gained recognition in Australia as an "Ironwoman" endurance athlete.

"Us South Africans, we stand together and we're out here for de Kock".

Warner and de Kock were both fined after their ugly bust-up in Durban and the two teams have been warned by the match referee to keep their tempers in check. Australia's Nathan Lyon also was punished for an over-zealous celebration of a wicket in that first test.

According to respected cricket writer Peter Lalor, South African batsmen complained to umpires about it.

A ban could see Rabada miss the rest of the series, but he will contest the charge.
