Anderson threatened to punch Bailey, says Warne

Shane Warne says a threat by Jimmy Anderson to punch debutant George Bailey sparked the furious reaction by Australian skipper Michael Clarke, who was subsequently fined, in the first Test against England. As a member of the Nine Network’s commentary team, Warne had access to all the stump microphone recordings and tweeted that Anderson had threatened Bailey, who was fielding in close, with a punch to the face. “…Unfortunately only Clarke’s reaction to Anderson’s was heard live, we all heard Anderson’s sledge that led to Clarke reacting,” Warne tweeted on Monday.AFP
