Smith and Warner were handed 12-month bans from Cricket Australia, while Bancroft was slapped with a nine-month suspension.

"We hadn't really been able to catch up because he's been away, Cameron's been in Perth and I've been doing what I've been doing, I've got family at home, so it's been hard".

In his emotional press conference in Sydney in March, Warner conceded he may not be given another opportunity to play for Australia.

His actions in the Newlands Test, where was caught on camera changing the nature of the ball and pushing sandpaper down his pants, earned him a nine-month ban, and Bancroft said his life had been a roller-coaster since that day.

While Smith marked his return to action with a half-century, Warner lasted just two balls as he was bowled by Sri Lanka veteran Lasith Malinga for one while representing the Winnipeg Hawks, who nevertheless defeated the Montreal Tigers by 46 runs at the Maple Leaf North-West Ground. The duo were barred from taking part in any form of competitive cricket by Cricket Australia in the aftermath of the ball-tampering incident in South Africa.

"I've had a lot of times where things crop up, particularly when you're grieving and you're going through some emotional responses to the events that happened in South Africa. That's the great thing I look forward to is that I'm not here for me, I'm here for those guys and what can I do to help".

David Warner, like Steve Smith, is playing at Global T20 Canada.

To have my daughter on Facetime and say that she misses me and loves me and she wants to come over here and watch cricket, I'm excited that they want to get back into it as well.

The 29-year-old is still on the top of the ICC test rankings.

"It's all a part of moving forward with it all". These tournaments are exciting, just like the IPL or the Big Bash League.

Once again iterating that he is responsible for the entire debacle, Warner said that he will now move forward to play the best cricket he can.

Smith scored 61 for the Toronto Nationals and is relieved to be playing cricket again. It's been a long three months for myself, thinking I won't be here [playing cricket].
