Some South African cricket fans have received backlash for reportedly making Sonny Bill Williams masks to taunt Australian opener David Warner on Friday.
Both countries are playing in the second Test match against the Proteas at St Georges Park in Port Elizabeth this weekend.
Warner and SA wicket-keeper batsman, Quinton de Kock were involved in a brief altercation on the staircase leading up to the players dressing room during the tea interval on Day 4.
Cricket correspondent and writer, Firdose Moonda spoke to Stephen Grootes about what she says is the existing misogyny in the game.
It is completely deplorable that South African fans would think that the right thing to do was to denigrate a woman who they don't know and whose actions really don't deserve to be judged by them.— Firdose Moonda , Cricket correspondent and writer
I don't think it has anything to do with the South African team, I think it has to do with the South African fans.— Firdose Moonda , Cricket correspondent and writer
Warner is said to have taunted de Kock during the first test when the South African player, admittedly, retorted by mentioning a brief relationship between Warner's wife and Williams.
If we go back to where it started, where for two hours David Warner was saying a lot of things while Quinten de Kock was batting and some of those things were quite personal.— Firdose Moonda , Cricket correspondent and writer
I think that part of it is just all about this culture of Australian cricket and the macho kind of image that they need to put out there.— Firdose Moonda , Cricket correspondent and writer
There seems to be a real disagreement over what 'personal' constitutes. For Australia it seems to mean something involving wives or partners, for South Africa it seems to be something involving fitness and weight. Now it has spilled over onto the fan base.— Firdose Moonda , Cricket correspondent and writer
