AB de Villiers and David Warner found themselves in middle of a storm during the first Test between South Africa and Australia at Durban.
AB de Villiers had hoped to help dig South Africa out of a hole, as they found themselves in trouble losing Elgar and Amla early. But a misunderstanding with Aiden Markram cost De Villiers his wicket for a golden duck.
Markram played the ball to short fine-leg and De Villiers hared down the wicket for a run. Markram didn’t respond to his call and De Villiers returned back to the crease. But a sharp Warner threw the ball to Lyon, who dislodged the bails and De Villiers was run out despite a valiant dive.
Australians, especially Warner and Lyon celebrated in over the top fashion, with Lyon dropping the ball (literally) on a fallen De Villiers, and Warner getting into a show down with Quinton de Kock, during the tea on Day 4.
A fan shared the video of Warner pointing and shouting at De Kock in the stairwell to the pavilion of the Kingsmead, as his teammates try and restrain him.

To which AB de Villiers quipped, “This series will be one to remember”

Australia defeated South Africa by 118 runs in the first Test, a defeat that could have been bigger, but 143 from Aiden Markram and 83 from Quinton de Kock delayed the inevitable.
