The 28-year-old was stripped of the captaincy and handed a 12-month suspension from international cricket for his role in the Cape Town Test ball-tampering scandal in March.

The website also says former vice-captain David Warner, who also got a 12-month ban, is likely to play in the tournament.

Smith and Warner admitted having knowledge of the plan but failed to stop Cameron Bancroft using sandpaper to tamper with the ball on the third day of the third Test against South Africa.

Smith’s also banned for two years from him holding a leadership position within the n team and 100 hours of voluntary service in community cricket.

The ban for breaching Cricket ‘s code of conduct extended to state matches but permitted Smith to play domestic tournaments outside .

The Global T20 Canada consists of five Canadian teams and a Cricket West Indies representative team, made up entirely of players from the Caribbean.

A draft to determine who plays where will be held next week.

Bancroft has also begun a comeback after also being suspended over the scandal.

Former Test opener Bancroft, who is serving a nine-month suspension, will play for WA club side Willetton next season.

Meanwhile, Warner is committed to play a handful of Sydney grade cricket matches with Randwick Petersham.
