Cricket Australia (CA) has reported David Warner for breaching CA's Code of Behaviour after a series of abusive tweets appeared on Warner's timeline yesterday.

The tweets, some containing obscene language, attacked Australian journalists Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn for their criticism of the Indian Premier League and the player's own performance as part of the Australia side that lost a Test series in India 4-0 earlier this year.

"Warner is alleged to have breached Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour, regarding comments posted on his twitter account," a CA statement read.

"Rule 6 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.'"

"The time and date of the hearing will be determined by CA on Monday."
