Former Australia coach Darren Lehmann, who stepped down from his position following the conclusion of the controversy stricken tour of South Africa, said how he worries about the banned trio of Steven Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft daily and hopes they will return to worldwide cricket soon after serving their respective bans.

Warner, who was banned from global cricket for 12 months along with team-mates Steven Smith (12 months) and Cameron Bancroft (nine months), is using the break to spend some quality time with his family.

Taylor expects Smith to lead Australia again. "Thanks guys", Warner had said after arriving back from Johannesburg following a taxing Test series against South Africa.

Langer, a gritty opening batsman who played in some of Australia's greatest teams, has been appointed coach of the Test, one-day and T20 sides for the next four years.

"I think the biggest thing for us has been when you are in a routine you can get caught in a bubble - cricket, hotels, packing your bags, coming home".

"You are not home for long [when playing cricket]", he said. "I have had some time away to come to terms with everything and now it's time to get back into it", Smith wrote in an Instagram post. However in the following days, it emerged that Warner too had a role in hatching the plan to alter the condition of the ball with a sandpaper.

"The support has been fantastic", he said.

Smith had also thanked people publicly for their support on Friday, saying "I now have a lot to do to earn back your trust".

"I think I've learned a valuable lesson in this myself for the support I have been given to be on the front foot to help others".
