Melbourne: David Warner is facing a Cricket Australia enquiry after attacking two noted Australian cricket writers on his twitter page.

Warner called Craddock a Pr*** who writes s*** and also described the other coloumnist Malcolm Conn an old f***.

Warner wrote to Craddock, saying, ‘Shock me @crashcraddock1 talking shit about ipl jealous p****. Get a real job. All you do is bag people. #getalife.’

‘@TheStooge2 @crashcraddock1 All he did was talk s*** about the greats now he s**** up there a**. Talk more crap why don`t you,’ read one of his tweets.

‘Wow @crashcraddock1 some smart journo who thinks he can bring Down people. Well done CHAMP!!",’ read another.

To Conn, Warner wrote, ‘ @malcolmconn are you still talking you old f***, no wonder know one buys your paper.’

In another tweet he wrote, ‘@malcolmconn have a look at you, your a fool writing back thinking your talking to a wannabe cricketer haha.’

The explosive series of tweets was noted by Australia`s Cricket Board and they issues a statement that they will investigate the matter.

‘Cricket Australia is aware of comments made on David Warner?s twitter account overnight. Cricket Australia is attempting to contact Warner and will continue to investigate the matter,’ a CA statement said.
