his comeback on Friday.
Opening for the Winnipeg Hawks, Warner was clean-bowled by Lasith Malinga's first ball of the second over.

the Montreal Tigers (157 all out in 18.5 overs) by 46 runs.

his return after making 61 off 41 balls on Thursday.
Smith said after his match that it had been a difficult few months, and Warner agreed.
definitely has been tough, not just for me but for my family, obviously
the fans out there that support cricket and Australian cricket, so I'm
responsible for that, that's my fault and why I've had some tough
times," Warner said.
"I'll keep continuing to move forward and making sure I'm doing the right things at the right times."
