After the much disgraceful ball-tampering scandal that painted an ugly picture of Australian cricket in the entire world also saw the trio of Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft getting banned for committing an act near to sin.

Lehmann, who was replaced by Justin Langer as head coach of the Australian men's team on May 3, is hoping the three players will return to global cricket once their punishments are served, reports Cricket Australia. "Children's swimming lessons and gymnastics classes are my priorities now", Warner said.

Speaking to The NT News, the 31-year-old said, "Sometimes with our society, something has to happen for the worst for people to come out and show a lot of support and 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".

Warner will be available to represent his country again in April 2019, along with Smith, while Bancroft's ban will be up by January 2019.

Lehmann, who left his position in the wake of ball-tampering scandal in South Africa, said that he is in regular touch with the banned cricketers and hopes that all three will be able to make a successful return to global cricket after serving the period of their punishments. The three were also banned from leadership roles in Australian cricket to varying degrees.

'The most memorable line from his press conference he said was that it was a failure of leadership, ' panel member and former Australian Wallaby rugby union player Peter FitzSimons said.

"I am enjoying my family time now and it's worthwhile".

Smith announced on social media on Friday that he had returned to Australia from overseas, seeking to win back trust after the scandal. "I now have a lot to do to earn back your trust". It has been a tough six weeks for myself, but I put myself in David Warner's shoes, Cameron Bancroft, Steve Smith. they've been to hell and back, haven't they? "David Warner is the same. This will be a really important message: If they are willing to meet the standards of the Australian cricket team, I think everyone has a place". "They're going okay", the former coach mentioned.
