Former Australia fast bowler Jason Gillespie believes that David Warner should get a 'punishment that fits the crime' following his unprovoked attack on an England player, believed to be Joe Root.

"It's unacceptable behaviour for a start," said Gillespie. "He's come out and apologised, you'd like that to be the end of it."

However, the Yorkshire first-team coach, who was part of the dominant Australia side of the 1990s and early 2000s, expects the batsman to receive an appropriate reprimand from the ACB.

Gillespie - unacceptable behaviour from Warner

"There is a code of behaviour that all players adhere to and whatever punishment fits the crime, I'm assuming that will happen with Cricket Australia," he told Sky Sports.

Based on the heavy fine handed to the left-hander recently after an outburst on Twitter, Gillespie suggested that Warner could face a hefty penalty.

"I certainly think he got done for ranting on twitter about various things with some journalists. A punch in a public pub is a pretty serious thing to do."
