Darryl Cullinan responds to Flintoff's "sledging" claims

According to reports, the International Cricket Council has issued a warning saying the world body will come down hard on players who verbally abused their opponents at the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup.

David Warner has come under fire for his flare-up with India's Rohit Sharma during their ODI in Melbourne on Sunday, in which he repeatedly asked his rival to "speak English".
