London, June 13 — Cricket Australia (CA) Thursday fined batsman David Warner $11,500 and also suspended him for the remainder of Australia's ICC Champions Trophy campaign and two tour matches ahead of the Ashes for a bar brawl with an English cricketer.

Warner will be available for selection for the first Ashes Test. The Australian opener Thursday pleaded guilty to breaching Rule 6: Unbecoming Behaviour.

CA Senior Code of Behaviour Commissioner, Gordon Lewis, fined Warner and suspended him from the remainder of Australia's ICC Champions Trophy campaign as well as the Australian team's two tour matches before the first Ashes Test against Somerset and Worcestershire. Warner will be eligible for selection for the first Test.

Rule 6 states: Without limiting any other rule, players and officials must not at any time engage in behaviour unbecoming to a representative player or official that could (a) bring them or the game of game into disrepute or (b) be harmful to the interests of cricket.

Warner Wednesday stood down from Australia's Champions Trophy match against New Zealand over an alcohol-related problem. He was reportedly involved in a physical altercation with England's Joe Root.
