The day of 29th March will be remembered by one and all for primarily three gutting images. One being Steve Smith breaking down repeatedly during his press conference at Sydney airport.
The second was David Warner and his wife Candice, crying their way out of the airport dodging derogatory questions from reporters, along with his two little girls.
And the third being Cameron Bancroft fighting his tears back and claiming that he was devasted giving up his place in the Australian side without a fight.
As a result, the cricketing community, which was initially frowning on the disgraced trio of Australia, thawed after watching these three images.
Renowned cricketing personalities such as Kevin Pietersen, Chris Gayle, Rohit Sharma and many others poured in their sympathies on Steve Smith and co.
Following the recent trend, former Indian batsman and SRH mentor, VVS Laxman, offered his sympathies to Smith, Warner and Bancroft.
“Picture of Steve Smith breaking down is awful for any cricket fan to see. Today is Mahavir Jayanti and Bhagwan Mahavir said,” Anger begets more anger and forgiveness and love lead to more forgiveness and love,” VVS Laxman posted in a tweet.
“A bad mistake should not define the character of the man. I wish all three players and their families the courage and strength to go through this. Let’s give them the space they deserve at this time,” Laxman professed.
“I am looking forward to them coming back and doing what they do best, score tonnes of runs and entertain us all. My best wishes,” VVS Laxman concluded.
