Lot to do to earn back trust: Smith

  • Australia's Steve Smith was banned from cricket for 12 months following his involvement in the ball tampering scandal

Steve Smith has vowed to earn back the trust of the Australian public following the cheating scandal in South Africa which saw him banned from playing worldwide and state cricket for a year. "And I'm looking forward to sitting back and watching it".

Langer reflected favourably on Smith's passion for the game in his first press conference since taking the job, and stated that all three suspended players would have the opportunity to work their way back into the Australian camp once their suspensions were up. "Family is the most important thing in the world and I thank you for your love and support", he said.

Smith posted a picture of himself with his fiancee Dani Willis and his dog on Instagram and wrote: "It's great to be back home in Australia".

Langer has also been involved in the Australian men's team set-up as an assistant coach for three years from November 2009, before taking up head coaching roles with Western Australia and Perth Scorchers.He has also twice been Australia's head coach on an interim basis, in an ODI tri-series in the Caribbean in 2016, and in a T20 worldwide series on home soil against Sri Lanka in 2017. CA chief executive James Sutherland said the sanctions had to be severe because of the damage done to the reputation of Australian cricket. But the wider cricket community were a lot more sympathetic.

"Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith, literally besides Mike Hussey, love the game more than anyone I know", Langer had said.

"They are cricket tragics and they're great kids".

For this, it is also willing to pump in an additional $3-4 billion, if Flipkart opts to pursue Amazon's offer instead of Walmart . Take Amazon Prime: It offers Indian customers two-day delivery, the ability to stream video and music and other perks for $15.


"They've made mistakes. We have all made mistakes and we can all get better", Langer said.

The door has been left open for Smith's and Warner's return.

We hope Steve Smith handles the robust time like he has been handling those bouncers on the cricket field and make a roaring comeback next year!

Describing Australians as people who "love to win", he added that his players should abide by one simple rule: knowing the difference between right and wrong. "If they meet the standards of the Australian cricket team, of course, they will be welcomed back".

"We just have to get behind them as a nation, support the new coach and captains, but also support those guys that aren't playing as well". His humility, along with a tweet on April 4 - his last before a month-long social media silence - in which he said he would not contest his ban, has already gone a long way to re-establishing his standing with the public.
