Cricket South Africa have sought to distance themselves from the alleged actions of members of the cricket body who were photographed with fans wearing Sonny Bill Williams masks.

"On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia, its officials, team management, players and their families", CSA President Chris Nenzani was quoted as sating by ESPNcricinfo.

On Saturday morning, CSA distanced itself from Friday's events and said that it would follow "normal internal processes" in investigating the actions of Eksteen and Kazi.

"'On behalf of CSA I extend my honest apologies to the Board of Cricket Australia (CA), its officials, team management, players and their families', commented CSA President Chris Nenzani".

The two officials were photographed with three spectators wearing the masks at the match at St George's Park in Port Elizabeth. Another patron took a photo of the pair under the toilet cubicle door, and the images went worldwide.

Following the infamous off-field spat between Warner and South African wicketkeeper Quinton de Kock, South African fans are targeting the Australian vice-captain, using images of Williams in an attempt to get under his skin. The left-handed opener was left fuming after De Kock had allegedly said something about Candice during the first Test, and the home fans wanted to further ridicule the Australian. The tryst, which was splashed around the tabloids, happened well before Warner and Candice met.

Security had reportedly stopped fans with masks outside the venue before CSA intervened and let them in.

Security complied with the request and stopped the spectators in question at the gate, however they were then allowed in after the intervention of CSA officials. People come in dressed as all sorts of things.

The news also comes as the ICC steps up an investigation into how video of the Warner-de Kock altercation was originally leaked.
