The Australia-England rivalry, be it on or off the field, has always been a topic of discussion among the cricketing fans and the two boards.  

This time around, the David Warner sledging incident, where the banned Australian opener walked off the field during a club game in Australia, is on fire.  

Upset with the episode, former England captain Michael Vaughan took to his Twitter and expressed his anger. 

"An Australian Cricketer walks off the field for being sledged !!!! The Aussie players are now wanting us to 'Smile with them,Dream with them' ........  What has Australian cricket come too (sic) ..... Waugh,Border,Hughes,Warne,Mcgrath must be so proud ... !!!! #OnOn," Vaughan wrote.

The player who reportedly sledged Warner was Jason Hughes, the brother of Phil Hughes, who died after being struck on the neck while representing South Australia in a Sheffield Shield match back in 2014.

The 32-year-old David Warner was banned from state and international cricket in March this year, after a ball-tampering incident during Australia's tour of South Africa.

Story highlights

David, who is playing for Randwick Petersham, left the field mid-innings because he was upset at comments made by Western Suburbs player Jason Hughes.
