Steve Smith and David Warner won't be rushed back into Australia side

Smith and Warner's bans from the ball-tampering scandal don't expire until the end of March, but Australia next play a Test from August 1 in England, with captain Tim Paine declaring this week both should be picked.

While Smith is expected to be fit in time for the quadrennial tournament, reports coming out of Australia suggest that the cricket board is not keen on Smith participating in the World Cup. "We're not talking about two really good players, they're two great players who, on paper, we'd be insane not to have them in the team (for the World Cup)", Langer said after the Test team's win in Canberra.

"A real lesson in a lot of the younger guys in the team is Test cricket is not always easy no matter how good you are", Paine said. "I'm happy now that we've got this (Sri Lanka series) out of the way and I can put everything into it because every Australian cricketer can't wait to go and play an Ashes series, particularly in England".

Smith's participation has been thrown into doubt by an elbow problem that required surgery last month and requires him to have his right arm in a brace for six weeks.

Smith's manager Warren Craig said that the right-hand batsman remained in braces after the surgery, but expressed confidence that he would be ready to play in a few weeks' time.

Cricket Australia will privately begin a mediation process with Warner and Smith and other squad and staff members shortly. It's all part of the management.

Seifert, whose previous best innings in eight internationals was an unbeaten 14 on debut, gave New Zealand a flying start. The home team was earlier routed 4-1 in the five-match One-day worldwide series.

"The intent is that he will play in the IPL and then the World Cup and then the Ashes".

Smith is eligible to represent Australia from March 29 but his injury will prevent him from getting the match practice coach and selector Justin Langer said he wants before recalling him to the national side for the games against Pakistan. They'll find opportunities. We'll find opportunities.

And Australia will look even stronger in the Ashes series with Smith and Warner back in the side, he said.

Coach Justin Langer said it would only be a lack of match practice that would prevent Smith and Warner's return to the global fold.

"We know how good they are and hopefully, once their bans are up, they will be welcomed back and they'll win Test matches like they did before".
