Banned duo not handed Australian return

David Warner and Steve Smith have not been included in Australia's ODI squad when they become available after suspension.

The pair were available as of March 28 before the 4th and 5th one-day internationals against Pakistan in the UAE. 

They will return via the Indian Premier League to hope to obtain selection against of the ICC 50-over World Cup. 

Mitchell Starc wasn't included after suffering a recurrence of a left pectoral strain. 

Chairman of Selectors Trevor Hohns admitted it wasn't ideal not having Starc prepare with the remainder of the squad. 

Josh Hazlewood is also suffering from injury and it is uncertain as to when he will return.
