Despite involving in the ball-tampering fiasco that shook the cricket fraternity and was banned for a year, former Australian skipper Steve Smith has been receiving huge support from Indian cricketers. After Harbhajan Singh opined a year’s ban is unjustified, team India’s all-rounder Yuvraj Singh along with R Ashwin too came in support of Steve Smith.
He urged the fans to not forget that Smith has been a great batsman and the “glory” he brought to Australian cricket till the ball-tampering scandal resulted in a year’s ban on him.
Yuvraj Singh further emphasized that Smith was not the first to tamper with the ball.
In his Twitter handle, Yuvraj wrote: “To be honest it’s a bit sad to see @stevesmith49 like this Yes we all know he made a mistake and he is bearing the consequences for it but let’s not forget he’s been a great batsman and a good guy who’ got a lot of glory to Aus cricket also not the first person to tamper the ball.”
Team India’s off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin also took to Twitter to share his thoughts on the controversy. In the tweet, he wrote that he hopes Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft can put the scandal behind them.
“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 @stevesmith49 and Bancroft all the strength to come out of this,” the off-spinner tweeted.
Steve Smith, along with vice-captain David Warner, has been banned for a year for ball-tampering during the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town. Cameron Bancroft, who was caught on camera trying to tamper the ball with a sandpaper, has been banned for nine months.
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 @stevesmith49 and Bancroft all the strength to come out of this.?
