South African officials have come under fire for posing with fans wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks, in a move which was meant to provoke David Warner following last week's ugly dressing room fracas between the Australian vice-captain and South Africa's Quinton de Kock.

During the course of play on the first day, a couple of CSA executives were photographed with the fans wearing masks, which indirectly related to the spat between Warner and De Kock.

South African quick Kagiso Rabada is facing being suspended for the rest of the series after his exuberant send off to Aussie captain Steve Smith on day one of this Test. The day before the Port Elizabeth Test, social media posts, including one by a reporter (who is not working on this game) with the host broadcaster SuperSport shared photographs of fans making Williams' masks and of a songbook with lyrics containing vulgar and derogatory language.

Warner wears the strapping tape because he's broken his left thumb twice and left index finger once, while there is also a hot spot on the hand resulting from a knock suffered during last month's Twenty20 tri-series.

CSA said Eksteen and Kazi were now subject to "internal processes".

Warner's wife was involved in a tryst with New Zealand rugby player Sonny Bill Williams over 10 years ago.

Warner was hit with three demerit points and fined 75 per cent of his match fee after he was caught on CCTV in a stoush with Quinton de Kock.

"CSA does not associate itself with these actions and urges all Protea supporters from refraining from being involved in distasteful or unwelcome actions that may impact the image of the sport and its supporters", the sporting body said.

Cricket Australia is understood to be furious with the conduct of Eksteen and Kazi, stunned that officials would be OK with the low-brow actions of supporters.

According to both the Australianand Channel 9, South Africa's batsmen complained to umpires about taping on Warner's left hand.

It means the opener will automatically cop a suspension if charged by the ICC during the next two years.
