Australia have named Steve Smith and David Warner in their Cricket World Cup squad, a year after both men were found guilty of playing key roles in a ball-tampering scandal.

Captain Smith, his deputy Warner and Cameron Bancroft were sent home from the South Africa tour in the wake of an incident that shook the sport.

They were subsequently handed 12-month bans by Cricket Australia. Bancroft was banned for nine months and returned to action December.

Smith confessed that the team's 'leadership group' hatched a plan to tamper with the ball during the third test against South Africa in Cape Town.   

Opening batsman Bancroft was caught on camera placing sticky yellow tape, which he used to pick up rough granules off the pitch, into the front of his trousers when he believed he had been spotted by the umpires.

Australia begin their World Cup against Afghanistan in Bristol on 1 June.
