Paine denies rumours of rift between players and Warner

Warner was pinpointed by Cricket Australia as the instigator of the Newlands ball-tampering plot, and there were testy scenes in Cape Town in the days after the match, as CA's integrity officer Iain Roy conducted interviews with a selection of players and coaching staff before code of conduct charges were laid.

"Certainly the week in South Africa was very hard and everyone said that, but guys in that team get along well and David is a respected member of that team and always has been".

"I certainly like Crash Craddock's writing and when he's on TV I'm a fan of his", Paine said.

Both NSWCA and WADCC have rules in place which state that a player suspended by Cricket Australia is "automatically disqualified from participation in WADCC Competitions for the duration of that suspension".

He stated that while Warner's competitive nature may aggravate certain opposition at times, he was well respected and received within the Australian camp.

"There's a side of David that people don't know". "But I thought he was a little bit off the mark there and really unfair on David Warner as a person and as a cricketer". But within our team he's someone with that energy and competitiveness that we love playing with. "I certainly wasn't expecting to be part of the one-day set-up going forward - that was sort of the information I was given", he said.

However, Tim Paine recently spoke to the Australian media regarding this matter, and confirmed that no-one has or had a problem with Warner.

Paine has been named interim captain of the One Day International team for its upcoming tour of England, in addition to his position leading the Test side.

"David is a respected member of that team".

Australia will play an ODI series and a one-off Twenty20 in their first appearance since the ugly ball-tampering scandal. But I know the guys have kept in touch via texts or phone calls and that's something we've got to continue to work on.

"But in the coming weeks and months, I'm going to look at how this has happened and who I am as a man".

"It's going to be different, but playing in England the crowds and the media are always coming at us with something, but it's just going to be the level of it and the seriousness of what's happened".

He said he was hoping to finalise plans over the next couple of weeks, following initial discussions with each of the players.
