Banned Australian star duo David Warner and Steve Smith will make their return to global cricket when Australia tour the United Arab Emirates to play an ODI series against Pakistan.

Steve Smith and David Warner will join the Australian ODI cricket team this week.

After seeking form in the Indian Premier League, Smith and Warner will likely make their ODI return for Australia in a warm-up game against England, in Hampshire right before the World Cup.

The face-to-face meetings are the surest sign yet the disgraced batsmen will be part of Australia's World Cup defence, as has always been the widespread expectation.

The meetings are expected to focus on the new team culture that Langer has fostered since his appointment previous year - and regularly been in discussions with both Smith and Warner about.

The stopover will also give team medics a chance to assess the pair's fitness after they both underwent elbow surgery in January.

Smith, who is confident he'll be fit for the start of the IPL, and Warner, who recently scored a grade-cricket ton in his return from injury, will have cleared out before Australia resume training for their first ODI against Pakistan on March 22.

Earlier, Aussie selectors have named an unchanged 15 man squad for the five match ODI series against Pakistan and are due to arrive in Dubai on Thursday.

The visit will give Smith and Warner a chance to start repairing any strained relationships within the touring party.

Langer, who likened himself to a soap opera director and described Australian cricket as a dysfunctional family this summer, wants his charges to focus on maintaining the momentum they've generated with back-to-back wins over India.

India will take on Australia in the fifth match of five-match series on Wednesday, March 13 at FerozShah Kotla Stadium, New Delhi.

"They are two really good guys".

"I think they are well equipped [to handle the scrutiny], but I think it could be a shock for them by the same token when they come back", Ponting said.

Khawaja suggested the squad is content with a scenario in which two incumbent batsmen will be axed to accommodate Smith and Warner.
