Warner, who is serving a 12-month suspension following the ball tampering scandal in South Africa, will not travel to the United Kingdom, but will analyse the action from a studio in Sydney.

The punishment means he can not hold any leadership position in the team for the rest of his career, but does allow him to play in overseas domestic leagues and Australian Premier Cricket - senior inter-club or district cricket competitions in each of Australia's states and territories.

Also on the podcast, sledging is on the agenda - not the type on ice though, Bumble - with Australia's new coach, Justin Langer, said to be changing the culture of the team following the damage done by the ball-tampering controversy in South Africa earlier in the year.

Banned former Australia vice-captain David Warner will begin his cricket comeback from the Channel 9 commentary box later this month. "I can't see the criticism". "I think it's an astounding appointment", said Stefanovic.

"People have tried to paint Dave as the villain in all this, but he's been hurting as much as the others (Smith and Bancroft)".

After the back and forth flirting via Instagram, the new couple uploaded Harry Potter inspired photos. "A picture from Ariana and Pete's private wedding has leaked, she looked awesome ", the fan joked.

After the media gig, Warner will head to Toronto for the inaugural T20 Canada, which will mark his return to professional cricket.

"He just wants to atone for his mistakes and move on - I hope Australia gives all of them that chance".

But England's weakness is their bowling and even a reduced Australia team here at the moment has the potential to make some very big scores over the rest of this month in a five match series that starts at the Oval on Wednesday.

"I only became aware [of the appointment] yesterday", Agar said.

The International Cricket Council's decision to shrink the World Cup from 14 teams to 10 had already been heavily criticised long before Scotland and their fellow associate or non-Test nations impressed with the quality of their play in Zimbabwe.
