The sister of South African star Quinton de Kock has joined the ugly fallout of the first-Test fracas in Durban, as the growing feud between the wicketkeeper and Australian vice-captain David Warner deepened on Tuesday.
Warner reportedly engaged in an hour-long battle with de Kock before the pair’s infamous run-in outside the team dressing rooms during the Tea break on the fourth day of the Durban Test.
Reports had emerged that the fracas had been sparked by disparaging remarks about Warner’s wife Candice, and allegedly, the source of de Kock’s frustrations has been revealed – it relates to Warner’s on-field baiting of the explosive star.
According to reports in South African media, Warner took pot shots at de Kock’s sister and mother members and called the 25-year-old a “bush pig”.
So now de Kock’s sister, Dalean de Kock, has laid into the Australian opener on the micro-blogging website – Twitter.
“Wtf (what the f**k)! I’ll hurt you @davidwarner31,” Dalean de Kock tweeted while quoting the CCTV footage of the dressing room scuffle.

However, ICC is looking into the matter currently and a stern action is expected to be taken by the match referee Jeff Crowe. Even after the match, the team managers from both the countries were seen discussing and a verdict on it might come soon.
The second Test between South Africa and Australia will commence on March 9 and the tempers are expected to flare even more in the coming days.
