David Warner faces sanction from Cricket Australia after reportedly being involved in an alcohol-related incident in England.

Cricket Australia confirmed it was investigating the matter and while it was yet to announce a punishment on Wednesday afternoon Australian time, the ABC reported Warner had been stood down from Wednesday's ODI against New Zealand in Birmingham.

"We are aware of reports regarding an incident involving David Warner in England," Cricket Australia tweeted. "CA is investigating and will be commenting further soon."

Details of the incident are unclear but further controversy is hardly what Warner needs after he was fined A$5750 last month over a Twitter spat with two Autsralian journalists.

Warner has also been struggling for runs since arriving in England, having made ducks in both the Champions Trophy warm-up games and nine in the loss to England.
