David Warner is expected to properly address the ball-tampering saga on Saturday for the first time since being accused of masterminding the scandal.

The dumped vice-captain has scheduled a press conference for Saturday morning at the SCG, marking the first time he will take questions from the media since he allegedly instructed Cameron Bancroft to tamper with the ball in South Africa.

Warner, who has been suspended by Cricket Australia for 12 months and banned from ever holding a leadership position again, did not take questions when he landed back in Australia on Thursday night.

While a contrite Bancroft and broken axed captain Steve Smith each attended press conferences after also copping lengthy bans, Warner instead made a brief statement after his late-night flight before leaving Sydney airport with his wife Candice and two daughters.
