  • Support 'humbling and overwhelming', says Australian cricketer David Warner

Former Australia coach Darren Lehmann says he still keeps in touch with banned trio Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft and hopes they'll be forgiven for their transgressions.

Former Australia coach Darren Lehmann, who stepped down from his position following the conclusion of the controversy stricken tour of South Africa, said how he worries about the banned trio of Steven Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft daily and hopes they will return to worldwide cricket soon after serving their respective bans.

David Warner spent Sunday morning training young women and girls in power-hitting techniques and T20 cricket at Darwin's cricket oval.

"But this is a time that Australian cricket needs to move forward and they couldn't have a better person to lead them now".

"I think one mistake, one silly mistake shouldn't define his whole career", said Bronwyn McRostie, whose daughter Hannah, 11, took part in the clinic.

"I think it can be resurrected and I think it will be under Justin Langer".

And while public opinion of the former cricketer may remain divided, budding players were just happy to spend time on the field.

"It is humbling and overwhelming", said Warner in an interview to NT News.

Meanwhile, a refreshed Smith declared this week he was ready to get back to business after returning home from the US.

Smith is expected to be back in the Australian side for the 2019 World Cup but would not be allowed to resume the position of captain for the mega event.

Smith is free to return to the Australian set up for next year's World Cup and Ashes in England, but can not fill a leadership position again until the end of March 2019. "I have had some time away to come to terms with everything and now it's time to get back into it", he said.

'Family is the most important thing in the world and I thank you for your love and support, ' he wrote. "I now have a lot to do to earn back your trust".

Cricket Australia (CA) director and former Australia skipper Mark Taylor has backed Steve Smith to return to the national captaincy after the ban on his leadership ends.

While Smith was charged with knowledge of the ball-tampering plot, Warner was charged with developing it and instructing Bancroft to carry it out. "They're bloody good human beings".
