Steve Smith & David Warner Recalled, Peter Handscomb and Josh Hazlewood Miss Out

Peter Handscomb is expected to be left out of the Australian squad for the World Cup

Peter Handscomb is expected to be left out of the Australian squad for the World Cup

Former captain Smith and vice-captain Warner were fined and banned for their roles in the incident during the third Test in South Africa in March 2018.

Meanwhile, if their IPL form is concerned, David Warner has been churning out runs on a consistent basis for SRH. And the day became even more memorable for Smith and Warner as Cricket Australia included them in their list of contracted players for 2019-20 season.

Alex Carey is headed to his first World Cup as wicketkeeper.

They were eligible for the final two games of Australia's recent limited-overs tour against Pakistan, but selectors preferred that they eased themselves back at the Twenty20 Indian Premier League.

Josh Hazlewood has missed out on Cricket World Cup selection with Nathan Coulter-Nile and Jason Behrendorff the two surprise picks in Australia's 15-man squad for their title defence.

The return of Smith and Warner was expected and it was always tight for Handscomb to find a place in the World Cup squad after their return.

Both players also regained their Cricket Australia contracts as the country's new list of contracted players was announced - less than three weeks after becoming eligible for global selection again after bans imposed for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa previous year.

Hohns said fast bowlers Mitchell Starc and Jhye Richardson have been named subject to fitness.

Spinners Adam Zampa and Nathan Lyon have been named in the Australia squad alongside Mitchell Starc, Pat Cummins, Jason Behrendorff, Jhye Richardson and Nathan Coulter-Nile.

Hazlewood was the biggest name to miss out with Warner and Smith back into the Australia squad.

Australian selector Trevor Hohns said the decision on the final squad was not taken lightly. "Our focus is to have Josh back bowling at his best for the commencement of a big Ashes Tour", Hohns was quoted as saying by Cricbuzz.

"Given the depth of talent and competition for spots there were a number of tough calls we had to make to settle on our squad of 15".

Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh have been rewarded for their good recent form with selection, while skipper Aaron Finch will lead a batting line-up that also includes all-rounders Marcus Stoinis and Glenn Maxwell.
