Smith has gone through a lot in the last couple of months since Cape Town Test. Thus, it was a valiant effort on his part to straightway find his touch in the Canada T20 League.

Meanwhile, Toronto Nationals skipper Darren Sammy scored a brisk 22 off just 10 balls to give the finishing touches to the match. But, the franchise will look to continue with their good form.

In fact, Smith will also like to be amongst the runs as he would like to straightway walk into the Australian side ahead of the World Cup.
