File: Australia's batsmen David Warner (L) and Steve Smith take more runs from the England bowling on the final day of the fourth Ashes cricket Test match at the MCG in Melbourne on December 30, 2017.
SYDNEY - Steve Smith and David Warner, the former captain and vice-captain of Australia, who are currently serving 12-month bans, have been cleared to play club cricket in the time they are out of the national side.
The situation of Cameron Bancroft, the third player to be banned by Cricket Australia (CA) over the ball-tampering scandal, is not so clear-cut.
His fate will be decided on Monday at a meeting of Western Australia’s Premier clubs.
All three players were banned by CA in March after they were found guilty of colluding to alter the conditions of the ball during the Cape Town Test.
