While Smith is set to play for Rajasthan Royals, Warner will ply his trade for Sunrisers

"It's been awesome. It's like we didn't really leave, the boys were very accepting of us coming in and with open arms," Warner was quoted as saying by

"A lot of big hugs and cuddles. It's been great. It's good to see the spirit they're in after a great series win in and I am obviously looking forward to watching them play against here and hopefully they win that series as well," he added.

Meanwhile, Smith also echoed Warner's comments, saying he felt as if he had never left the squad

"It seems like some really good among the team at the moment," Smith said.

"It's great to be back around the group, they've been really welcoming and almost like we've never left," he added.
