Australian opener David Warner said on Thursday he regretted not keeping a lid on his outrage but maintained he had to defend himself after his image was used in a report condemning the Indian Premier League.

The explosive opener said he was responding to a piece from News Limited cricket writer Robert Craddock that followed the arrest of S. Sreesanth and two other IPL players for spot-fixing.

Warner said he was “extremely annoyed” that a photo of him playing for the Delhi Daredevils accompanied Craddock's piece that highlighted, in part, corruption and fixing in the IPL. — AFP
