Shamed Aus duo Smith and Warner's comeback set to be against England

David Warner sizzles with century on return from surgery

David Warner sizzles with century on return from surgery

Selector Trevor Hohns said it had been decided they would be better served playing their way back into contention at the Indian Premier League.

Smith and Warner missed the previous edition of the IPL due to the situation surrounding their bans following the ball tampering incident which happened in Cape Town during Australia's tour of South Africa in March 2018.

The banned duo of Steve Smith and David Warner will be eligible to play cricket at worldwide level, as the one-year bans levied on them for their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in 2018, comes to an end on March 29, 2019.

In a blow for Australia's hopes of building momentum for the World Cup in England starting late May, pace spearhead Mitchell Starc has been ruled out of the squad after a setback during his recovery from a left pectoral strain.

While the right-hand batsman will represent Rajasthan Royals, the left-handed opener will turn out for last season's runners up SunRisers Hyderabad.

While the injured players will have to prove their fitness, Smith and Warner will be considered for the selection post their return to competitive cricket. The 2019 edition of the IPL will start on March 23, ten days after Australia's tour of India concludes with the fifth ODI which is scheduled to be played in Delhi.

Newcastle fans blast Yedlin v Everton
I can understand sometimes the fans when he is giving the ball away, but he is capable of doing these things. James' Park erupted when the Spaniard stabbed home from close range three minutes later to win it.

He had been in a brace for weeks, but picked up a bat again and had a session at the Sydney Cricket Ground last week. Bancroft was banned for nine month while Cricket Australia concluded that coach Darren Lehmann, who resigned, was not involved.

Australia face Pakistan in the UAE in their last ODI series before the World Cup. Though Warner's injury was not as serious as Smith's, however, he had to undergo the knife.

Sharjah will host the first two matches on March 22 and 24, followed by one game in Abu Dhabi on March 27, and then two more in Dubai.

"The squad is making pleasing progress ahead of the World Cup, and with three matches remaining in India and the five-match series against Pakistan to come, we believe they will benefit further from the continuity of playing together", said Hohns.

Australia squad - Aaron Finch (capt), Usman Khawaja, Shaun Marsh, Peter Handscomb, Glenn Maxwell, Ashton Turner, Marcus Stoinis, Alex Carey, Pat Cummins, Nathan Coulter-Nile, Jhye Richardson, Kane Richardson, Jason Behrendorff, Nathan Lyon, Adam Zampa.
