Following the "sandpaper gate" in South Africa, when Cameron Bancroft was caught by cameras trying to tamper with the ball, the then-captain Smith and vice-captain Warner were handed one-year suspensions by Cricket Australia for "cheating" and "damaging" the sport.
That led to year-long suspensions for both, plus a nine-month ban for opening batsman Cameron Bancroft, who tried to hide the sandpaper down his pants. It's just a bit more constant with the singing over here.
"They're two of our best ever players", Marsh said.
A week after Australia completed a dramatic series victory in India by winning their final three matches, ending a dismal run of 22 defeats in 26 completed one-day internationals, Shane Warne believes the team are once again striking fear into opponents and can be spurred to World Cup glory by the reintegration of David Warner and Steve Smith.
If last summer is anything to go by, the Australians will have to develop a thick skin. I'm not saying it was me, I'm saying it was great to see him do it after those conversations. With Warner already persona non grata in England after throwing a punch at Joe Root during the 2013 Champions Trophy, things could get lively.

Following the meeting, Smith commented on the positive energy in the camp following a come from behind 3-2 ODI series win over India. "I'd be disappointed if the fans didn't give it to them". I think they'll just be excited to get out and play and they'll be determined to show how much they've missed the game and how good they are, and that could rub off on the team and take the team with them.
Smith said of the meeting: "I guess it's just been going through the values that are instilled in the team at the moment and making sure we are on the right path looking forward to what's coming up". So I love the confidence.
Punjab spent big in the player auctions, snapping up little-known Indian spinner Varun Chakravarthy for $1.2 million - making him the top buy along with Indian paceman Jaydev Unadkat, who went to the Royals. No one gets criticised.
"It will be great - never got the chance to play in Jaipur with the Royals..."
'Both bowling sides will be pretty good, ' he said. But I think the Ashes will bring out the best in Stuart Broad, that's for sure'.
Even though the CA suspensions did not restrict the three players from club-level tournaments, the BCCI banned the duo previous year and offered the franchises, Rajasthan Royals and Sunrisers Hyderabad, an opportunity to find replacements.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
