In addition, neither player will be eligible to captain the side for a period of two years.

Cameron Bancroft, the player at the centre of the ball-tampering controversy that rocked the Day 3's play at Newlands last Saturday, has been banned for a period of nine months.

However, all three players will be free to play in next year's Cricket World Cup in England, starting on May 30, 2019.

In total, Smith and Warner will miss a total of 48 international matches, broken down into 12 Tests, 29 ODIs and 7 T20Is.
