Disgraced Australian opener David Warner on Thursday apologised to fans and said he took responsibility for his part in the ball-tampering in the third Test against South Africa last weekend.
Breaking his silence in an Instagram post, Warner wrote, "Mistakes have been made which have damaged cricket. I apologise for my part and take responsibility for it."
"I understand the distress this has caused the sport and its fans," Warner, who is on his way back to Sydney, told his 1.6 million Instagram followers. "It's a stain on the game we all love and I have loved since I was a boy.
"I need to take a deep breath and spend time with my family, friends and trusted advisers.
