Cricket fraternity reacts to a tearful Steve Smith press conference in Sydney

Posted On / /

Things came to a standstill, as a tearful and inconsolable Steve Smith faced up to the press post his disgraceful return from South Africa, after the ball-tampering scandal in the Cape Town Test.

Steve Smith and David Warner have been given 12 months ban, while Cameron Bancroft received a nine-month ban from Cricket Australia.

During the press conference in Sydney, Smith tearfully asked for forgiveness from his fans and the Australian people. “To all of my teammates, fans of cricket all over the world and to all Australians who are disappointed and angry … I’m sorry,” Smith said.

The fallen captain said he was “absolutely gutted”, and that he would regret what had happened “for the rest of my life”.

“I hope in time I can earn back respect and forgiveness,” Smith added.

Cricket fraternity reacted on Twitter after Steve Smith’s apology at the press conference.

Here are some of the tweets:
