David Warner: Took offence at being linked with article
David Warner has apologised for his Twitter outburst against two journalists, a rant that earned him a hefty fine.
The Australia batsman had blasted News Limited cricket writers Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn, after he took offence to an article by the former on the nightlife during the rich Indian Premier League tournament, which carried a picture of Warner.
Warner to keep speaking his mind
The opener, who was fined 5,750 Australian dollars (£3,700) by Cricket Australia, revealed he had spoken to Conn about his outburst, and conceded he could have handled his frustration better.
"I have just sat down with Mal and we had a good conversation. We all just want this to blow over and hopefully we can move on," Warner said.
"For me, to have my image related to an article of that fixture it's the worst thing that could possibly be brought to a cricket player.
"If I had my time again I'd definitely make a phone call to Robert and ask him why the sub-editors used that image.
"At the end of the day it was my fault, I take full blame for what's happened and I apologise to anyone I offended with my language I used."
