Smith, who was sacked as Australia captain and banned from global and domestic cricket for a year following the scandal which erupted in South Africa in March, is allowed to play in the low-key Canadian event.

Warner dismissed for one.

Rumours were rife that the scandal caused a big fallout between Warner and the rest of the player group.

While Bancroft, the most junior member of Australia's XI in Cape Town, is banned at worldwide and domestic state level, he is preparing to make his comeback in the Northern Territory's Strike League.

"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 said.

CA's ban does not extend to domestic tournaments outside Australia, which allowed Smith and Warner to play in Canada.

"People are going to get that impression, but me and Steve, we're good mates". It's been a little while now since we got back from South Africa [but] it feels like yesterday that I was sitting at the WACA honestly having these really sad conversations with all of you, now here I am and I'm about to step off and play some cricket again.

"They've been up and down as well with the way they've been feeling".

They will now face Belgium on Friday, who squeezed past Japan after a last-gasp goal from Nacer Chadli. That's the end of that one then.

Smith has been participating in the Global T20 Canada, making 61 on his return to the game.

Bancroft will make his own playing return in the month-long Strike League in Darwin, which starts on July 1.

Spanish lessons, yoga and a host of community work have all been part of the path taken by Cameron Bancroft since the Newlands ball-tampering scandal.

He said there was never a moment where he considered retiring from the sport. Part of my rehab is playing cricket as well, that's what I love doing.

The ultimate goal for Bancroft is to once again represent Australia.

Bancroft thanked his parents for helping him through his rollercoaster ride of emotions.

"As a dad, and a family man, the last 12 weeks has 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".

"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. It is great to have the support so I am thankful that everyone has been supportive since I have been here".
