Social media has accused the Springbok lock of not doing anything to stop the scuffle in Langebaan at the weekend. WARNING: Graphic Language.
Springbok lock Eben Etzebeth has dismissed allegations made on social media that he was involved in a racial incident at the weekend as "completely untrue and unfounded".
An interesting recipe for the England star.
The 28-year-old left-handed batsman’s five-and-a-half hour innings was a brilliantly paced mix of defence and aggression.
The incident is now being investigated by police and McGregor said he is ready to accept any punishment meted out.
The 24-year-old Barbados-born son of an English father said conditions in Leeds dictated why he bowled fewer short balls than at Lord’s.
He was unconcerned about Warner’s lack of form, which has seen the left-hander score only 18 runs in four innings.
Smith, whose two centuries in the first Test were pivotal in Australia taking a 1-0 lead, is still suffering concussion symptoms.
Australia have been at the forefront of pressing for better safety measures after the death of Phillip Hughes.
The star batsman collapsed face forward after a sickening blow to the side of the neck and head when on 80 during Australia’s first innings of the second Ashes Test against England on Saturday.
