Cricket Australia (CA) have confirmed that the disciplinary hearing into David Warner's Code of Behaviour breach will be held via video conference this Wednesday (22nd May).

He is alleged to have breached the Code of Behaviour after a series of abusive tweets aimed at journalists Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn appeared on his timeline.

Warner remains in India following Delhi Daredevils' final Indian Premier League 2013 match, which they lost to Pune Warriors yesterday (19th May).

The case will be heard by CA Senior Code of Behaviour Commissioner, The Hon. Justice Gordon Lewis AM.

Warner is alleged to have breached Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour, which states that  "players and officials must not at any time engage in behaviour unbecoming to a representative player or official that could (a) bring them or the game of cricket into disrepute or (b) be harmful to the interests of cricket...this rule applies at all times where the unbecoming behaviour involves the player being involved in public comment or comment to or in the media."
