Steve Smith comments on Nicholas Pooran’s ban
Australian right-handed batsman Steve Smith commented his view on the four match ban imposed on West Indies cricketer Nicholas Pooran.
West Indies player Nicholas Pooran is facing a four-match ban at the moment, after being caught for the ball tampering during the game against Afghanistan. The same thing was happened last year with the Australian players Steve Smith, David Warner and Cameron Bancroft.
Unlike Pooran, the Australian players were handed over some heavy sanctions by Cricket Australia for the dissent behaviour in the field. Talking about that Australian player Steve Smith said that every cricket board is different and so the punishments.
“Everyone is different, every board is different, and the way they deal with certain issues. For me, I copped it on the chin … it is what it is. I don’t feel hard done by. It was a long time ago now. I’ve moved past it and I’m focusing on the present.” Smith said.
Talking about Nicholas Pooran, “I think he’ll learn from his mistake and mPoorove past it … I think he’s going to be an exceptional player in white-ball cricket.I know Nicholas, I’ve played a bit of cricket with him and he’s a talented player and someone with a bright future,” he added.
Further the right-handed batsman is seem to be not much worried about the past as he feels mistakes are part of the career. “Of course, I’ll still make mistakes, I’m a human being, we all do. But being able to catch yourself and the way you’re thinking is something I’ve learned and something I’ll continue to work on and continue and get better at.” the former Australian skipper concluded.
