Summary

  • England all rounder Moeen Ali has asked fans and team-mates to go easy on the returning Steve Smith and David Warner after they were named in Australia’s World Cup squad.
  • The pair have both completed their year-long bans for their part in the ball-tampering sandpaper saga in South Africa and their first return in Australian colours is set to be the World Cup warm up against England on May 25.
  • “CA maintains that both the length and nature of the sanctions remain an appropriate response in light of the considerable impact on the reputation of Australian cricket, here and abroad.
  • “We believe the ongoing conversation about reducing the sanctions puts undue pressure on the three players – all of whom accepted the sanctions earlier this year – and the Australian men’s cricket team.
  • “As such, the Cricket Australia board doesn’t intend to consider further calls for amendments to the sanctions.”
