Tearful Australia cricket captain Steve Smith apologizes for ball tampering scandal

Cricket Australia bans smith Warner and Bancroft for ball-tampering Tearful Australia cricket captain Steve Smith apologizes for ball tampering scandal

Smith and former vice-captain Warner have both been banned from global and domestic cricket for 12 months by Cricket Australia, while Cameron Bancroft was hit with a nine-month suspension for his hands-on role in the debacle at Cape Town.

"The revelations from Cricket Australia (CA) on Wednesday that he was the mastermind of the plot and had told Bancroft to cheat were damning", he wrote in a column for The Telegraph in Britain.

"It is heartbreaking to know I will not be taking the field with teammates I love and respect and that I have let down".

"I will regret this for the rest of my life, I am absolutely gutted, I hope in time I can earn back respect and forgiveness".

Last week Australia's Steve Smith and David Warner went from being two of the most loved sportsmen in their country to being treated like near criminals after admitting to being part of a ball tampering incident during the third Test of their four match series.

It was confirmed earlier on Thursday that head coach Darren Lehmann would resign following the fourth and final Test at the Wanderers, which begins on Friday, and as the fallout from the saga rumbles on, Somerset announced their decision to cancel Bancroft's deal.

"I think it is partly because the (Australian) Prime Minister (Malcolm Turnbull) has come out and said "this is ridiculous what's happening".

A sobbing Warner said he realised he may never play for his country again.

"We know what the consequences are when you make terrible decisions like this".

Madigan said the players involved had a chance of restoring their reputations with sponsors and fans.

"I made a serious error of judgment and I know and understand the consequences", he said.

The ex-opener's approach frustrated members of the media, with one barking,"You haven't answered the question".

Warner suspended from worldwide and state cricket for 12 months and banned from ever holding a leadership position in the test team.

Warner, who has played 74 Test since his debut in 2011, said he would be seeking ways to make character changes. "I want you to know I fully support your review into the culture of the Australian cricket team".

Warner and Steve Smith were given year-long bans by Cricket Australia after the incident against South Africa.

Bancroft and Smith both declined to blame Warner on their return to Australia, with Smith saying it had "happened on my watch" during his emotional press conference.

David Warner's wife Candice, who was present in the auditorium was also in tears, seeing her husband address the media.

The duo, along with captain Smith, were subsequently banned from all global and Australian domestic cricket - while Smith and Warner will not play in the forthcoming Indian Premier League season, and resigned as captains of their IPL franchises. "It was a failure of my leadership".

"I'll do everything I can to make up for my mistake and the damage it's caused".
