CCTV footage from the fourth day of the Durban Test showed Warner walking up the stairs to the players' dressing room, engaged in heated conversation with someone else.

The 31-year-old had been the main protagonist in a nasty incident with Quinton de Kock, where he had to be restrained by teammates in a staircase after the two got into a war of words.

The sledging war between David Warner and Quinton de Kock has reached the next level, with the South African batsman's sister weighing into the saga via social media.

Australian batsman and vice-captain David Warner has been cleared to play in the second Test match against the Proteas at St Georges Park in Port Elizabeth, after accepting his level 2 breach of ICC's code conduct during the first Test in Durban.

Reports had claimed that the spat started with the Australian vice-captain celebrating the run-out of AB de Villiers on day 4 of the first Test.

South Africa may take a similar view but are yet to reveal whether they will appeal de Kock's punishment.

According to the ICC's official release, de Kock, who was also reported by the officials along with Warner, is yet to respond to the level 1 charge against him.

De Kock's sister has come out swinging at the Australian opener personally calling him out on Twitter.

Asked whether there would be talks between the two sides in a bid to reduce hostilities, Lehmann said: "I'm sure the coaches will chat and the captains will chat and we'll get away to play the game".

Team management have confirmed De Kock will contest his charge.

"Respect is the key & and I hope nothing personal was said to any player towards anyone from either side".

"I don't know how their team manager can hear from where he's sitting". Certainly it's hard, and we like to make them feel uncomfortable out there.

Australia squad: Steve Smith (c), David Warner (vc), Cameron Bancroft, Pat Cummins, Peter Handscomb, Josh Hazlewood, Jon Holland, Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Mitchell Marsh, Shaun Marsh, Tim Paine, Jhye Richardson, Chadd Sayers, Mitchell Starc.
