Birmingham: Shane Warne said the fall-out from David Warner's controversial attack on England batsman Joe Root could yet "bring Australia together" as they bid to regain the Ashes.

Opening batsman Warner was suspended by Cricket Australia on Thursday until the first Ashes Test, which starts at Nottingham's Trent Bridge on July 10 and fined AUS $11,500, (£7,000, $11,000).

He will now miss the rest of title-holders Australia's Champions Trophy campaign, starting with their final group game against Sri Lanka at London's Oval ground on Monday, and their two warm-up matches ahead of the Ashes.
