Darren Lehmann, the former Australia coach, keeps in touch with and worries about the trio of players banned for ball tampering.
 
Former captain Steven Smith, former vice-captain David Warner and batsman Cameron Bancroft are "bloody good human beings", and Lehmann hopes they'll be forgiven their cricketing transgressions by everyone in time.
 
Smith, Warner and Bancroft received bans from Cricket Australia in late March for their part in the ball-tampering affair on the tour to South Africa.
 
Smith and Warner will only be available to play for Australia in April 2019, about two months out from the World Cup.
 
Bancroft, meanwhile, will be eligible by January 2019. The three were also banned from leadership roles in Australian cricket to varying degrees: Warner for life, Smith and Bancroft for a year after their bans from playing are lifted.
 
Lehmann was cleared of wrongdoing in the matter by CA, but stepped down voluntarily after Smith's anguished presser got to him.
