Banned Australia batsman David Warner briefly left the field during his innings in a Sydney club competition match after appearing to be sledged by an opponent.
The Australia batsman, serving a 12-month ban from global and domestic cricket for his part in a ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, departed the middle with 35 runs to his name in the NSW Premier Cricket clash with Western Suburbs.
While playing for Randwick-Petersham against Western Suburbs on Saturday, Warner was reportedly sledged by Jason Hughes, brother of Phillip, the former Aussie batsman that tragically died in 2014 after being struck by a bouncer during a Sheffield Shield match.
"There was a brief exchange between Jason Hughes and David Warner".
Warner, who was batting on 35 at the time of the incident, went on to complete his half-century.
"I'm not going to go into the details but David was taken aback by the comments and thought they went a little bit too far, so he made a decision to remove himself from the game".
"He left the field because first of all he didn't like what he was hearing and where that could have been taken", Candice Warner told Australia's Sports Sunday on the Nine Network.

Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan said those behind the killing must be held accountable. Trump has called the Khashoggi case " one of the worst cover-ups in history ".
"Everyone has their own opinion but there is a difference between sledging and abuse", she said.
"I'm not going to get into what was said, but yesterday went too far. I'm concerned about the whole mood around the game", Taylor said.
At the inquest, Warner said Hughes had been one of his "closest mates" and he missed him every day. "It was hurtful, very hurtful".
'He felt what had been said was very offensive to him but he realised that he had to play.
Warner is serving a 12 month ban alongside Steve Smith after Australia's unfortunate ball tampering fiasco in March. "He got 157 yesterday.and it is a shame we are talking about this instead of his century".
Taylor was probed over the result of Cricket Australia's internal cultural review and revealed some of the findings will be "confronting" to the Aussie public.
