Warner condemns Shamsi's celebration

Sunrisers captain says he 'wouldn't accept' antics of Bangalore spinner in his own team

Sunrisers Hyderabad captain David Warner has condemned the wicket celebration performed by Royal Challengers Bangalore overseas spinner Tabraiz Shamsi.

Following his dismissal of Warner, who was caught at long-off for a blistering 92, Shamsi sprinted to deep cover and started performing a dance routine with his captain Virat Kohli.

On his walk back to the Sunrisers dugout, Warner's gaze was focused in the direction of the jubilant pair.

When asked what he was thinking as he was leaving the playing arena, Warner made it clear that kind of behaviour would not be tolerated under his watch. 

"I was looking at Virat Kohli and I don't think he was too impressed until he (Shamsi) got a bit closer," Warner told reporters after play.

"I think it's a bit hard for a captain to stand there and not go (through) the motions.

"In my team, if someone does that at 150 off 15 overs, I wouldn't accept that at all.

"I think it's a bit fancy to be honest."

Warner wasn't the only player unimpressed by the South African's antics.

Pune Supergiants leg-spinner Adam Zampa tweeted his disapproval moments after Warner's wicket fell.

While Shamsi, Kohli and the rest of the Royal Challengers enjoyed Warner's wicket, the Australian would have the last laugh as his side completed a professional 15-run victory in Hyderabad.

Warner took back the Orange Cap from Kohli as the tournament's leading run-scorer, with 386 - five ahead of the India Test skipper, though he has played one more match.

The Australian's scores this IPL campaign read: 58, 13, 90no, 74no, 59, 0, 92. 

Shamsi was called into Bangalore's squad after West Indian spinner Samuel Badree was forced to withdraw, and has since taken three wickets in three matches.
