Three months on from the Cape Town scandal, Smith made his comeback in the inaugural Global T20 Canada, contributing 61 from 41 deliveries to help the Toronto Nationals claim a six-wicket victory over the Vancouver Knights in the tournament curtain-raiser at the Maple Leaf North-West Ground.

Smith's return to the crease was delayed after Toronto won the toss and elected to bowl, with the Aussie star's first taste of action coming in the fourth over after hanging onto a smart catch at long-off to help dismiss West Indies star Chris Gayle for 17. As a result, Smith, and Warner were picked in players draft for the league in Canada.

Now serving a 12-month suspension by Cricket Australia for his involvement as captain in the ball-tampering scandal during the Test series in South Africa in March, Smith, still ranked the No. 1 batsman in ICC's official ratings, showed that he hadn't lost much by way of form, scoring a 41-ball 61.

Former Australian cricket great and commentator Dean Jones said that "Smith just wants to get back to playing the game he loves".

Smith was captain of Australia across all three formats of the worldwide game, something which may not happen again. "I got a bit lucky today, I didn't feel good like I have ever have so it's nice to score runs when you aren't feeling good, so hopefully, some positive signs". I didn't hit on the turf, I just hit indoors and I felt pretty good.

Evin Lewis led the charge for the Knights as they amassed a sizeable total of 4-227 from their 20 overs.

He missed, was stumped, and headed back with 61 to his name in a solid return to the game.

"We will make mistakes, but it doesn't mean you've got to keep kicking a man when he's down", Sammy said, referring to recent coverage of Smith during a visit to a bar in NY. And when they hopped on the plane over there I had some emotions that were a bit down.

"I've had times, particularly watching the boys play in England - and not play as well as they could have and England play extremely well - it was hurting me that I couldn't go out and help them. win games", he said. "People make mistakes, you have to give people a chance". Obviously, it has come under some ordinary circumstances but I was really mentally tired, after the Ashes especially. "I put so much work into the Ashes, and I think back to the one-day games after the Ashes and I don't think I've ever hit the ball that bad in my life". "Just concentrate on what I am doing and it's nearly like my haven I guess", said Smith.

"Steve [Smith] is a very impressive guy, and what happened was not ideal but he'll come back much better out of it and I'm sure it'll be a huge learning experience for him", Watson said. "A bit of a break perhaps isn't the worst thing".
