Steve Smith insists there are no hard feelings towards West Indies batsman Nicholas Pooran despite his relatively lenient four-match ban for ball tampering.
Australia's skipper at the time, Smith, along with vice-captain David Warner and team-mate Cameron Bancroft, received a long suspension for his role in the ball-tampering scandal in South Africa in March 2018.
Smith and Warner did not play for a year following sanctions handed out by Cricket Australia, with Bancroft returning after nine months.
Meanwhile, Pooran, who admitted to changing the condition of the ball in a one-dayer against Afghanistan, will miss four games after being punished by the International Cricket Council.
The Windies will soon have Pooran available again, but Smith would prefer not to reflect upon the contrasting punishments.
"Everyone is different, every [cricket] board is different with the way they deal with certain issues," Smith said. "For me, I copped it on the chin. It is what it is.
"I don't feel hard done by. It was a long time ago now. I've moved past it and I'm focusing on the present.
"I know Nicholas, I've played a bit of cricket with him, and he's a talented player and someone with a bright future.
"I think he'll learn from his mistake and move past it. I think he's going to be an exceptional player in white-ball cricket."
