Smith and Warner both faced boos from the crowd during their warm-up games.
Smith was back in the action six balls later after a bad mix up between Mohammad Nabi and skipper Gulbadin Naib resulted in a run out.
Australia'sDavid Warner showed little of his menacing hitting and brash in-your-face approach as he made his return to the global arena at the World Cup on Saturday.
Australia defeated Afghanistan by seven wickets in the first World Cup match in Bristol.
Man of the matchDavid Warner top-scored with 89 runs while Aaron Finch scored an impressive knock of 66 runs.
It wasn't precisely smooth sailing, but the experience Australia has in dealing with certain intricate situations got them over the line easily.
"I think it was just nerves getting back into the camp, and getting back into the full intensity of training", Warner said at the post-match presentation.
"The way that I started - playing Twenty20 cricket over the last 12 to 14 months hasn't really moved my feet at all".
Finch mistimed a slower ball from Afghan skipper Gulbadin Naib when on 66, holing out to Mujeeb Ur Rahman at deep cover and smashing his bat into his pads in frustration. "I think he's trying to use it to inspire himself, to fire himself up", Taylor said.
But still, Warner was there at the end after 114 balls.
He went for 22 in one over while all-rounder Marcus Stoinis also came in for some punishment, conceding 21 to Rashid's long-range hitting.
"It's just be there, do what's got to be done for the team". Both accepted the heavy sanctions imposed by Cricket Australia, hoping it would give them a chance to represent their country again. "We didn't have a good start".

Taking the rough with the smooth is all part of the job for a wrist spinner, admits Australia'sAdam Zampa, after taking three wickets in his side's triumph over Afghanistan.
Rahmat Shah and Hashmatullah Shahidi put on a 51-run stand for the 3rd wicket, which was their 6th fifty+ run partnership.
Although Smith just scored 18 runs, he made valuable contributions with his fielding as he took a great catch and also helped in an important run-out during the course of the Afghanistan inning.
Paceman Mitch Starc clean-bowled Mohammad Shahzad on the third ball and Pat Cummins had Hazratullah Zazai caught behind in the next over to make it 5-2.
Just like he did in the 2015 World Cup final, Mitchell Starc (1-31) took just three balls to strike when he ripped through Mohammad Shahzad and took his off stump.
We stand strong at all times and I will address the situation that happened tonight and then we move forward onto the next. One shot on the top of the dome rattled me a bit and I tried to stay in there a few more rounds.
That's where I find it hard. "Obviously hurts because I have got an emotional attachment, and personal attachment, to our players. Australian left-handed opening batsman David Warner is doubtful for Australia's campaign opener against Afghanistan on Saturday.
