I would regret whole my life, says Emotional Smith

Team Australia’s cricket captain Steven Smith who is hailed as modern great has now brought disgrace to the game of cricket and his nation. Smith, along with his deputy who were involved in the ball-tampering row, had been slapped with a 12-year ban from playing the International cricket.
 
After the infamous ball-tampering fiasco, Steve Smith appeared before media and broke down repeatedly. An emotional Smith apologized for his disgraceful act and said that he will take full responsibility for the ball-tampering scandal, and said he would regret the incident for the rest of his life.

“To all of my teammates, to fans of cricket all over the world and to all Australians who are disappointed and angry. I’m sorry,” an emotional Smith said in a five-minute press conference after being sent home in disgrace from South Africa.
 
“I take full responsibility … There was a failure of leadership, of my leadership. I’ll do everything I can to make up for my mistake and the damage it’s caused.
“I don’t blame anyone. I’m the captain of the Australian team. It’s on my watch and I take responsibility for what happened last Saturday,” Smith said referring to the incident during the third Test against South Africa in Cape Town.
