The cricketing world is in shock since the time the news of ball tampering has come to light. What’s more shocking is the name of the players who have been caught guilty in the case. After an extensive investigation, Australian cricket team’s captain Steve Smith, along with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft have been charged guilty and a ban has been imposed on all of them. They will also be paying a whopping amount as penalty.




The scandal is now being called #SandpaperGate, since Bancroft used a sandpaper to tamper the ball. An inquiry was set up by the Australian cricket authorities. As a result of the same, both Smith and Warner have been handed a 12-month ban in international cricket each, with suspended leadership. While Bancroft has received a ban for nine months in international and domestic cricket.



Steve Smith finally decided to face the media and set up a press conference to give his statement on the scandal. The cricketer looked shaken up and it was visible in his statement as well.

While talking to the media and expressing his thoughts, Steve couldn’t control himself and cried like a baby. The cricketer even took all the blame on himself and apologized for the same.

Here’s what Steve said:

“I want to, as captain of the Australian cricket team, I take full responsibility. I made a serious error in judgment. It was a failure of leadership, my leadership. I will do everything I can to make up for my mistake and the damage it’s caused. I know I’ll regret this for the rest of my life. I’m absolutely gutted. I say two things, or three things. Firstly, I’m deeply sorry. I love the game of cricket, I love entertaining young kids, I love kids wanting to play the great game of cricket that I love. The two other things is that, any time you think about making a questionable decision, think about who you’re affecting, you’re affecting your parents. To see the way my old man’s been … it hurts. I just want to say I’m sorry for the pain that I’ve brought to Australia and the fans and the public, it’s devastating and I’m truly sorry.”


Take a look at his crying video below:


Steve cried his heart out and apologized but unfortunately failed to convince many. Since the time the case has come to light, cricket fans have been thrashing the involved cricketers on Twitter and when the crying video of Steve went viral, tweeple started trolling him even more and called his tears, ‘crocodile tears’.
