Smith and Warner last year due to ball tampering in South Africa, Cricket Australia (CA) had imposed a year ban, ending on March 28.
There will be no problem with the team: Ponting
Ponting told Cricket.com, "I do not think internally it is more challenging for the players. I am confident that it will be talking about this for a long time, how do we include them back? How would they fit in the team? How can this be easily done? '
Both have to be cautious in England
The former captain said, "However, the biggest thing for these players will be people's talk, especially in England. If they return to the World Cup in England then they will not expect that their back will be patted there. They will be caught everywhere. They should know that they have to accept it all. '
Both batsmen will play in IPL
Ponting said, "The team also needs to understand because it can also cause problems to the team." Smith and Warner have not been included in the one-day series against Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). However, both of these players will play in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
