Steve Smith set to make his comeback with this T20 League

Steve Smith facing the press after the ball-tampering scandal

Disgraced former Australia cricket captain Steve Smith is set to return to the sport after being named a marquee player for the Global T20 in Canada.

He has been allowed to play in Western Australia's premier cricket league.

His ban only applies to global cricket and state matches in Australia, leaving Smith free to play domestic tournaments outside of Australia.

Smith will be playing alongside other worldwide stars such as Chris Gayle, Andre Russell and Shahid Afridi in the six-team tournament beginning June 28, organisers Cricket Canada said in a statement.

The Aussie batsman was banned from playing worldwide and domestic cricket in Australia after his involvement in the ball-tampering saga during the third Test versus South Africa in Cape Town.

Teams are to be selected on May 30 via a player draw.

Tainted Australian cricketer Steve Smith, like his teammates David Warner and Cameron Bancroft could make a return to the cricket field before his 12 month suspension is over.

"Let's take a look at some of the marquee players we've been able to negotiate with over the last few weeks, and confirm their participation in the first ever Global T20 Canada", he said. The growth of our region will largely depend on the success of leagues and tournaments like this.

The competition will have 22 matches ending in playoffs and the championship game on July 16. "Canadian cricket fans will have a great opportunity to see up close numerous world's greatest players, and I'd like to thank International Cricket Council, CWI and the international cricket community for their guidance and support in growing cricket in Canada".
