Sydney: Cricket Australia is seeking professional advice on what the organisation believes is troubled batsman David Warner's drinking problem, a report said yesterday. The controversial opener was fined A$11,500 ($11,000) and suspended until the start of the Ashes by CA on Thursday for an incident in which he punched England batsman Joe Root in a Birmingham bar during the ongoing Champions Trophy. He will miss the rest of title-holders Australia's involvement in the tournament and their two warm-up matches before he is again available for the first Ashes Test against England at Nottingham, which starts on July 10. CA chief executive James Sutherland on Friday strongly condemned the behaviour of Warner and five other Australian players who were with him at the time of the incident. The Sydney Daily Telegraph yesterday quoted Sutherland as saying CA were looking to examine Warner's drinking issues further. "I will be taking expert advice to make sure, with our various professionals, to make some additional judgements on that to provide whatever support is necessary."
