While the Australian team is struggling to put on dominating performances of late, the Aussie fans might hear some good news in the coming days as their national governing body, Cricket Australia (CA) is considering to lift the ban on the tainted trio of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft for their involvement in the ball tampering saga that happened during a Test against South Africa in Cape Town earlier this year.

However, the board has now come under huge pressure from the Australian Cricketers' Association (ACA) to revoke the bans after the Longstaff review which has also blamed the board for the fiasco which has tarnished Cricket Australia.

Steve Smith and David Warner were sent home and handed hefty bans by Cricket Australia after admission of ball-tampering. "They wrote to the board rather than to me or all management. So not for me to comment on a board matter other than to say that the board will be respecting that submission and giving it due consideration", he added.

The one-day team, now led by Aaron Finch, have lost their last seven including a 5-0 whitewash by England and a stinging defeat in Sunday's series-opener against South Africa in Perth after Pakistan had completed a 3-0 sweep of the Twwenty20 global series in the UAE. As India's tour looms large, if the bans on Smith and Warner are indeed lifted, it could have significant repercussions on the series. He said that repairing relations with the players' union remained a top priority.

Australia have lost two of their three Test matches since the scandal erupted in South Africa, while the one-day team was thrashed by England in the summer.

And Roberts added: 'I think what's really important is that we at Cricket Australia need to embrace the players and we need to make sure that the players feel a really valued part of CA.

'There's no doubt that we need to face up to the review and the fact that it acknowledged that the organisation hasn't been united enough across the playing and long-playing sides'.
