Melbourne:

Australian opener David Warner will have a Cricket Australia disciplinary hearing on Wednesday over comments he made on Twitter in often angry exchanges with two journalists.

Cricket Australia said Warner, who is set to play for Australia in the Champions Trophy and Ashes Test series in England, was alleged to have breached a section of its Code of Behavior relating to "unbecoming behavior."

Warner, playing for the Indian Premier League franchise Delhi Daredevils, used Twitter on Friday night from India to launch an often expletive-filled attack on News Limited journalists Robert Craddock and Malcolm Conn after taking exception to an article critical of the cash-rich league.

Last week spot-fixing allegations were leveled against three Rajasthan Royals players in the tournament, including India Test paceman Shanthakumaran Sreesanth.
