Australia coach Justin Langer admits he is excited to have Steve Smith and David Warner back from suspension and available for selection.
The pair have joined the Australia team in the United Arab Emirates to smooth the ground ahead of their return to top-level cricket at the end of the month.
Langer was pleased to have Smith and Warner with the squad and is looking forward to seeing the pair back in action.
“They have been received really well,” Langer said. “They have gone through a really tough time, a 12-month suspension – it’s great to have them back in the team.
“They’re excited and as a coach when you have got two guys with as many runs and experience as they’ve got coming back into a team that’s playing well, that’s very exciting.”
Australia look really bloody good right now.
