Steve Smith and David Warner will be under the spotlight in their comeback One-day International (ODI) after completing one-year bans for ball-tampering when Australia take on Afghanistan in the World Cup 2019 at County Ground, Bristol, on Saturday. Having played last ODI in January 2018, both Steve Smith and David Warner are hungrier than ever to score runs and prove their mettle in cricket’s biggest extravaganza.

Defending champions Australia will kick off their ICC World Cup 2019 campaign on Saturday as they take on minnows Afghanistan at the Bristol City Ground. The Aussies have shown that they are a force to reckon with after their impressive performances in the warm-up matches leading up to the tournament. David Warner and Steve Smith have returned from their ball-tampering bans and have strengthened the Australian side, making them a formidable outfit.
Cut to 2019 and they are already a strong side in the subcontinent, thanks to their trio of world-class spinners. In conditions outside Asia, challenges await them and the 2019 World Cup will be a litmus test of their progress thus far. As for Australia, they’ve gained significant momentum in recent months with ODI series wins in India and UAE, which has energized the team after a soul-suckingly, mind-numbingly dampening 2018. The recent form coupled with the return of Steve Smith and David Warner mean that Australia’s chances of defending the title have certainly shot up.
There has been some positive news ahead of the match for Australia as opening batsmen David Warner was declared fit for the tie. Both Warner and Steve Smith have been in destructive form since returning while Mitchell Starc’s comeback from injury has also bolstered the Australian side ahead of the opener. The Men in Yellow are coming into the tournament on the back of an eight-game winning streak after beating India and Pakistan, and would look to trump another sub-continental team.
