Smith, Warner return for Australia's World Cup tilt

  • Steve Smith currently playing in the IPL will make his international return

The duo was part of Australia's victorious campaign in 2015, and was all but certain to feature in the 2019 edition until they got embroiled in the infamous Sandpapergate in South Africa past year.

Former skipper Smith and Warner were eligible for Aaron Finch's national side after their 12-month suspensions for ball-tampering ended last month but their return put a squeeze on the batting positions that saw Peter Handscomb drop out. The top-order pair will also return to the Cricket Australia central contract list for 2019-2020.

While Warner has been in red-hot form for Sunrisers, holding the orange cap with 400 runs, which includes a century and four fifties, Smith has found the going tough for Rajasthan, having scored just 186 runs in seven matches.

Their inclusion, though, means that Peter Handscomb, surprisingly, misses out on a World Cup berth.

Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh have been included in the squad, which is a reward for their good form in the recent games. His 117-run innings in Mohali was pivotal in Australia chasing down 359 against India, their highest chase in ODI history. "Our focus is to have Josh back bowling at his best for the commencement of the big Ashes Tour". Mitchell Starc, who has not featured in any of Australia's last 13 ODIs, will lead their pace attack. On the other hand, the likes of Nathan Coulter-Nile, Marcus Harris and Adam Zampa have made it back to the contracted list of players.

Cricket Australia announced their 2019 World Cup team. Squads can be changed until 23 May without ICC permission. The defending champions took the tough decision to drop Peter Handscomb and fast bowler Josh Hazlewood from the 15-man squad announced on Monday.David Warner now leads the run scoring charts in the IPL, holding the orange cap with 400 runs, while Smith has 186 runs to his name in 6 innings.Dropping two in-form players underlines both the reversal of Australia's recent one-day form and the depth of talent the panel had to choose from.

He added that there had been some tough calls to make given the depth of talent available, but was happy to see Smith and Warner return to the global fold.

Seamer Jason Behrendorff and all-rounder Marcus Stoinis, who were also named in the World Cup squad, are also expected to leave Mumbai Indians and Royal Challengers Bangalore respectively by the end of the month to attend the camp.
