Warner reveals relationship with Smith post-ban


//

David Warner has laughed off suggestions he has fallen out with Steve Smith, saying the suspended pair often joke about talk that they don't get along.

Following the duo's ban for the ball tampering incident in Cape Town, speculation was rife about the relationship between Australia's former captain and vice captain, but Warner insisted that the relationship was in a good place as he prepared to face Smith in a grade cricket clash between Randwick-Petersham and Sutherland.

"As I said before, there has been a lot of media talk that we don't get along, that I've thrown him under the bus," Warner said, speaking publicly for the first time in months.

"It's good comedy for us - we enjoy it.

"We're catching up with each other and texting each other. We don't read it all but some of the fun stuff the boys throw towards us."

Warner also admitted that he has rediscovered his joy for the game of cricket while playing for Randwick-Petersham.

"It just puts it in perspective," Warner told Nine News.

"We have been living in a bubble for a long time.

"It's great to come back and to enjoy cricket and remind yourself that it's a fun game and it's there to have fun and keep putting a smile on your face."

Following the Ethics Centre's damning cultural review of Cricket Australia, there has been speculation that Warner, Smith and Bancroft's bans could be reduced, but Warner insisted that the focus should be on the current Australian team that prevailed over South Africa in the second ODI.

"At the end of the day I'm sitting 12 months on the sideline, that's my take on it," he said.

"That's why I want everyone to keep being positive about the guys that are playing and pump them up because we cant just sit here and keep on going, 'they're going to be in, they're not going to be in'.

"We just want the game to be pumped up as much as it can."
