  • Liz Ellis was disgusted by what's happened in South Africa

Cricket Australia could seek to bring charges under the International Cricket Council code of conduct after South African officials were photographed posing with spectators wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks aimed at taunting David Warner during the second Test in Port Elizabeth.

The South African board, however, released a statement on Saturday apologising to CA and the Australian cricket team.

CSA's statement quoted president Chris Nenzani as saying‚ "On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia‚ its officials‚ team management‚ players and their families". Eksteen and Kazi are wearing shirts and ties and their official cricket accreditations.

The masks were likely to have been worn to taunt Australian batsman David Warner, whose wife reportedly had an encounter with Williams in 2007 before meeting Warner.

Other photographs have surfaced on social media showing fans wearing the mask at the ground.

CSA tried to "distance itself" from the behaviour of Eksteen and Kazi when it apologised to CA.

"On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families", commented CSA President Chris Nenzani in a CSA statement.

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

That incident came to light after security camera footage of the players making their way back to the dressing rooms inside the stadium was leaked to the media.
