DEVASTATING!— Michael Clarke (@MClarke23) March 29, 2018
Tough to watch Cameron & Steve go through the 2 statements they just made. They will learn from this & be better in the future I'm sure!— Mitchell Johnson (@MitchJohnson398) March 29, 2018
So very hard to watch, well done Smithy and Bangas, horrible to see the pain they are in! They did wrong but will be back bigger and better! #goodyoungmen— Ryan Harris (@r_harris413) March 29, 2018
Genuine, raw and emotional. A strikingly contrite response to the hysteria, outrage and vitriol clogging up the feeds. I could barely keep it together watching that. A bad mistake won't define for me the character I've seen for a decade. Good human, bad choice. Still a good human— Peter Nevill (@pmnevill) March 29, 2018
Just seen @stevesmith49's press conference. As a parent, I'm gutted for him & his family!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) March 29, 2018
Shout me down if you want, but I'm speaking as a parent!
It will get better mate!
And boy do I hope that a lot of us are completely wrong in thinking these 3 weren't the only ones to know, cos it'll be A WHOLE LOT WORSE for those who knew, if they did...!— Kevin Pietersen (@KP24) March 29, 2018
I'm done on this subject now!
Just watched Smith presser. Hope everybody has had their pound of flesh now.— mark butcher (@markbutcher72) March 29, 2018
'Good people make mistakes' .. I honestly think Steve Smith & Cam Bancroft are decent guys who had a moment of madness .. they deserve a 2nd chance and hopefully get the right support around them now .. Takes a lot guts to do what they did today ..— Michael Vaughan (@MichaelVaughan) March 29, 2018
Hope in time I can earn forgiveness says Steve Smith.— Sanjay Manjrekar (@sanjaymanjrekar) March 29, 2018
He has already got mine.
Cricketers have done worse & never admitted their guilt.#StevenSmith
At least Steve smith as the courage to admit like a man but absolutely gutted to see Steve smith breaking down @ the press conference & also they way people treating him @ Airport & in Australia its sad leave that poor chap alone now ..— Shoaib Akhtar (@shoaib100mph) March 29, 2018
A year ban for ball tempering ?? That's a joke.What kind of crime they have done ?Taking the game away from someone for a year is absolutely nonsense.understand if ban was for 1 test series or 2 but this is ridiculous.hope @CricketAus reduce th ban @stevesmith49 @davidwarner31— Harbhajan Turbanator (@harbhajan_singh) March 29, 2018
