"The thing that just disappoints me about the whole situation is now Steve Smith and Dave Warner are over promoting other tournaments by playing in them", Watson told AAP on Friday.

The duo returned to action this week at the inaugural Global T20 Canada league, where they play for the Toronto Nationals and Winnipeg Hawks respectively, and former Australia test vice-captain Warner said there were no hard feelings.

"Steve and me are good mates".

Missing soccer team from Thailand found alive in flooded cave
Their smaller size would be useful in getting through the narrow underwater passage to Pattaya Beach, a rescue team source said. Rescuers make their way down at the entrance to a cave complex where 12 boys and their soccer coach went missing, in Mae Sai, .

Cricket fans in Canada can't get enough of Smith. "There were a lot of mental scars after the Ashes and that probably saw my form [dip] and maybe [for] Steve as well in the one-day series against England".

The 25-year-old, who is serving a nine-month suspension from global and domestic cricket, also gave an insight into his rehabilitation, saying he is now moving in right direction.

"It's all a part of moving forward with it all". The last 12 weeks have been tough, but it's enabled me to spend a lot of time with my family, and that's something I'll always cherish every day. The ban though is restricted to represent Australia and playing domestic cricket. 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. While Smith slammed a half-century upon his return, Warner couldn't do much and fell cheaply.

"Critics will be critics and that's why they're behind the keyboard, so we'll move forward and try to ignore that".

Plating the match in front of a sparse crowd in a sleepy, rural town north of Toronto, Smith managed to score 41-ball innings of 61 which included eight fours and a six.
