Steve Smith was inconsolable during his press conference

Steve Smith rendered a tearful apology to the world of cricket and to the Australian public on his arrival in Sydney. Smith, who was sacked as Australian captain and handed a one year ban by CA for his involvement in ball tampering scandal; was inconsolable throughout the press conference.

Steve and David Warner each got a year ban from international and domestic cricket and were also suspended from IPL 2018. Cameron Bancroft was banned for nine months. The ball tampering scandal has done some deep damage to Cricket Australia’s image and to the reputations of the involved players.

However, Indian spinner R Ashwin was sympathetic towards Steve Smith.

He said in multiple tweets, “The world simply wants to see you cry, once you have cried they will feel satisfied and live happily ever after. If only Empathy was not just a Word and people still had it. God give Steve Smith and Bancroft all the strength to come out of this. And David Warner will also need the strength to fight it out, hopefully their players union will provide them with all the support.”

In a latest development, Australia coach Darren Lehmann also announced that he has quit from his position with the fourth Test to be his last job for Australian team.
