Ravichandran Ashwin, Gautam Gambhir and varun dhawan Launch Passionate Defence Of Steve Smith

Steve Smith has come under heavy fire from all quarters for his role in the ball-tampering scandal that has shook world cricket. The 28-year-old broke down while addressing the media on Thursday, accepting full responsibility for the controversy that has resulted in a one-year ban for both him and his deputy David Warner and a nine-month ban for Cameron Bancroft. Following Smith’s emotional press conference, Indian cricketers Ravichandran Ashwin and Gautam Gambhir and Bollywood actor Varun Dhawan, who is currently busy promoting his forthcoming movie October has    jumped to the Australian’s defence, making a passionate plea to the rest of the world to tone down the criticism of Smith and the other cricketers involved. ,

bollywood actor Varun dhawn  on Thursday night tweeted a photograph of Smith and captioned: “Watching Steven Smith apologise and look broken is very sad. I’m sure the fans will forgive him. He looks beyond remorseful. I hope and pray he will come out of this ordeal a better cricketer. The mental the emotional trauma I’m sure is bigger than any ban.”


Gambhir first questioned in a tweet whether Smith was being dealt with harshly by Cricket Australia for a pay hike revolt by the Australian seniors.

 


Smith stepped down as Australia captain for the remainder of the ongoing third Test against South Africa and was punished  by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on March 25 in the wake of the ball-tampering controversy.Smith’s deputy David Warner also stepped down as vice-captain. Wicketkeeper Tim Paine acted as captain at Newlands, with both Smith and Warner taking the field on March 25.
