CA considering social media policy after Warner Twitter rant

Sydney, May 22 (ANI): Cricket Australia (CA) chief James Sutherland has said the governing body might need to consider implementing a social media policy after Australian Test batsman David Warner's recent Twitter controversy.

He said there had been no discussions about developing a social media policy for players, but admitted it is something that CA is considering.

Sutherland insisted he will continue to encourage players to engage with fans on social media, saying it played an important role in the promotion of the game.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Warner is expected to plead guilty at a hearing after being charged with breaching CA's code of conduct over his Twitter attack on two journalists on Saturday.

The 26-year-old is facing sanctions ranging from a fine, suspension or counselling following his heated exchange with News Limited's Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn.

Warner took to Twitter after he had taken exception to an article critical of the Indian Premier League, where he is playing with the Delhi Daredevils, the report added. (ANI)
