Australian cricketers Smith, Warner out of IPL

"Secretary Mr Amitabh Choudhary, has made a decision to ban Mr Smith and Mr Warner with immediate effect from participation in IPL 2018", an official statement from the BCCI read.

Even as the Australian cricket is under stress after the ball tampering allegations surfaced, the fall out is still continuing. The incident has tarnished the image of Australian Cricket entirely. Besides being the leader of a side that didn't boast of many big names in the last couple of seasons when they've played their best cricket, Warner is also their biggest source of runs at the top of the order. Sent home by Cricket Australia for his actions detriment to the spirit of the national team in South Africa, Warner is likely to be punished and could sit out of cricket for a long duration. The fact that he's only played 15 IPL matches might act as a deterrent against him being elected as the captain. Both these franchises appointed Steve Smith and David Warner as their leaders for the upcoming seasons.

"The team was planned with the captain in mind".

However, a Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) official told Cricketnext earlier in the day that there was no question of Smith and Warner featuring in the cash-rich league if the duo is slapped with bans by the CA. Bancroft was caught on camera while using a sand paper to tamper the ball.
