SOUTH African batsman Ashwell Prince clashed heatedly with his Test teammates during a domestic match this week.
Prince has just returned to the national side after missing the five past Tests.
He is said to have been involved in a heated, abusive slanging match with A. B. de Villiers and Paul Harris.
Prince plays for the Eastern Cape Warriors and the other pair for the Northern Titans.
Prince had been named acting captain for this week's third Test in Cape Town, but was removed from the position the following day.
