Australia batsman David Warner appeared fit and ready for the first Ashes Test against England as he practiced in the Edgbaston nets on Tuesday, alongside Steve Smith and Cameron Bancroft.

All three players were suspended from cricket following the ball-tampering scandal last year and are returning to Test cricket for the first time since the incident in South Africa.

Former captain Smith and Warner were handed 12-month bans by Cricket Australia following events in Cape Town while opening batsman Bancroft was suspended from the sport for nine months.

Warner left practice early following a painful blow to the left thigh on Monday and was sent to have the area iced, but coach Justin Langer confirmed on tuesday that he will be fit to feature in Birmingham.
