<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/">Australia</a> wicketkeeper <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/alex-carey/news/">Alex Carey</a> has put a positive spin on the jeers the pair of <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/steven-smith/news/">Steve Smith</a> and <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/david-warner/news/">David Warner</a> drew during their <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/series/icc-cricket-world-cup-2019-200898/">ICC World Cup</a> warm-up clash against <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/england/">England</a>. <p></p> <p></p>Both Warner and Smith were booed as they came out to bat with chants of 'cheats' welcoming the former Aussie captain. <p></p> <p></p>The duo was banned for a period of 12 months following their involvement in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa last year. Their ban ended in March this year and played their first game in Australia colours during a three-match warm-up series against New Zealand earlier this month. Saturday's warm-up match was the first time Australia took field in England and they were already expecting and fully prepared for the hostile reception from the home crowd. <p></p> <p></p>Carey though feels that it will only add to the atmosphere. "I think it s a great atmosphere. It just adds to the game," Carey was quoted as saying by <em>Reuters</em>. "I think we knew it was going to happen. It s one way to answer it, isn t it? Make a hundred and Davey got 40 as well. We knew that we were probably going to get that reception and the guys handled it really well." <p></p> <p></p>While Smith scored a match-winning century, hitting 116 off 102, Warner scored 43 off 55 as Australia beat England by 12 runs. They will face South Africa in their second practice match on Monday. <p></p> <p></p>Carey himself played a handy knock of 14-ball 30 providing a late surge that helped Australia to 297/9 while sharing a brisk 42-run partnership with Smith for the sixth wicket. <p></p> <p></p>Carey was all praise for Smith. "He's got his mannerisms but he s a ripper. He s very calm and he knows what s going on out in the middle. He runs hard between wickets, he s really busy and I really enjoyed that," he said.
