Cricket South Africa officials caught posing with fans in Sonny Bill masks

Cricket South Africa officials caught posing with fans in Sonny Bill masks

A day later CSA issued an apology to the Warner family and Cricket Australia, and the two officials in the photo - commercial manager Clive Eksteen and media and communications manager Altaaf Khazi - are fighting to save their jobs.

DAVID Warner has made a stand and given a touching tribute to wife Candice after a week in which the mother-of-two has been mocked over a decade-old off-field incident.

The photo shows Kazi and Eksteen smiling as they linked arms with three men who were wearing the masks in an attempt to torment explosive Australia opening batsman David Warner during the second Test match.

Cricket Australia effectively told the aggressive opener he was on his final chance in 2013 after a bar-room scuffle with Joe Root.

She was the target of vile abuse by South African cricket fans over the weekend, but Candice Warner is keeping her head up.

The masks, which Cricket South Africa labeled "distasteful" on Saturday when the picture became public, were being used by a small number of fans at the ground in Port Elizabeth to taunt Warner.

CSA said Eksteen and Kazi were now subject to "internal processes".

"On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia, its officials, team management, players and their families", CSAPresident, Chris Nenzani said.

David Warner and Quinton de Kock in a heated tea break exchange in South Africa. The Australian team and its management are understandably enraged. Candice Warner's encounter with Williams was widely reported in the Australian media, which coined the phrase "toilet tryst" to refer to it.

The allegations are the latest development in what has been a fractious series.

If there's anything that can be learned from the recent spats between Australia and South Africa's cricketers these last few weeks, it's that our trans-Tasman neighbours are hypocrites when it comes to sledging. Incensed by disparaging remarks made by de Kock about his wife Candice, the vice-captain had to be held back by teammates on his way up the stairwell to the team dressing room. Also, the CSA president Chris Nenzani apologised the Australians.
