We might see him bowl a lot more in grade cricket and when he comes back in a few months time as well. <p></p> <p></p>Starc revealed that Smith will continue playing Premier Cricket and T20 Cricket in the UAE as he gears up to make a comeback to the ODI squad in time for the <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/icc-world-cup-2019">ICC World Cup 2019</a>. <p></p> <p></p> He s in good spirits and it s good to see him around with bat and ball in hand. There wasn t heaps (of talk) about the immediate future, Starc said. <p></p> <p></p> There was a little bit of talk about world cup time and some line-ups there as well. I think he d love to play in the Big Bash League. Obviously, that s not the case at the moment. <p></p> <p></p> I think it s just great to see him playing cricket. That [UAE T20] will be quite a challenging tournament with some big names over there. He ll look to try and dominate and look to get some competitive cricket coming in to the back end of March. <p></p> <p></p>Australia, who lost the ODI series to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/south-africa/">South Africa</a>, will face the Proteas in a one-off Twenty20 International on Saturday before heading into the T20I <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/tag/india-vs-australia-2018">series against India</a>, with the first match on November 21 at the Gabba in Brisbane.
