South African fans taunted Candice on-and-off the field about her 'toilet tryst' with rugby star Sonny Bill Williams in 2004 (before she was in a relationship with David Warner).
David, who was forced to step down as vice captain of Australia after the ball tampering incident, also had an altercation with South Africa's wicket keeper Quinton de Kock after he reportedly brought up his wife's history.
Michael Vaughan tweeted: 'It's making me chuckle the Aussies are making an official complaint about the personal abuse they are receiving.'
An infuriated Candice responded: ''I'm glad it's making you laugh. So you would approve of the same treatment to your wife?'
He later denied condoning the 'personal abuse' the Aussies had been receiving, saying: 'Absolutely not. But off field anger in my experience starts with on field behaviour by players... so maybe you need to look closer to home as to why'.
The Australian cricket team have been embroiled in scandal after it was revealed Australian cricket captain Steve Smith and vice captain David Warner were caugh tampering with the ball. They have both stepped down from their positions.
