No punishment for Warner's BBL shove

David Warner won't face punishment for shoving Big Bash rival and long-time Australian teammate Matthew Wade during the Sydney Thunder's loss to the Hobart Hurricanes.

On Sunday afternoon, Wade and Thunder captain Chris Green had a heated exchange after Green finished bowling the 10th over in the second innings in Hobart, with Wade's batting partner Tim David appearing to placate the incensed bowler.

Just after the confrontation, Warner shoved Wade away as the Tasmanian tried to approach him in the drinks break.

Warner walked away before things escalated. Wade was caught in the deep during the next over.

"That was inappropriate. I don't know what went on between them there," Fox's Kerry O'Keeffe said of Warner's push.

"Was it jocular? We'll find out later."

On Monday, Cricket Australia confirmed to AAP that the on-field umpire did not lodge a report following the incident and that Warner would not face sanctions for lashing out at Wade.

After the game, Green and Wade confirmed they had buried the hatchet, downplaying their confrontation in a joint broadcast interview.

The match was Warner's second since ending a nine-year Big Bash hiatus and joining the Thunder for five games.

Cricket Australia needed to subsidise Warner's paycheck with money from its marketing budget but the Test opener played only a small role on Sunday, being bowled for a duck by Riley Meredith.
