  • Steve Smith was in tears after being banned

Smith and Warner are back on the worldwide scene after one-year bans for their part in the ball-tampering scandal, and they made their comebacks on these shores in the first of the summer's World Cup warm-up games against West Indies. The left-hander was soon after taken off the field and sent for precautionary scans of the jaw.

Away from Khawaja's incident, former skipper Steve Smith scored 76 in Australia's win. The batsman may not have been expecting the smattering of applause that greeted his run-a-ball half-century.

Batting first, West Indies scored 229 in 49.2 overs after being reduced to 104 for 6 at one stage.

There is likely to be plenty of barracking from partisan crowds in the coming months, not least when it comes to the Ashes, but they were afforded the gentlest of baby steps during a seven-wicket win at the Ageas Bowl's Nursery Ground.

Starc (2/34) wrapped up the innings by dismissing Ashley Nurse for 11.
