I need to earn back countrymen's trust: Steve Smith

I need to earn back countrymen's trust: Steve Smith

Time away from Australia may have done Steve Smith the world of good, with the former Australian cricket captain smiling with his fiance Dani Willis in an Instagram post after returning home from the United States.

He thanked his family for their support during this moment of crisis in his life following the suspension in the ball-tampering episode.

"He (Langer) has got a really good group of players and they'll play in an exciting way, and I'm really looking forward to watching them do that", Lehmann said.

"To my Mum, Dad and Dani you have been my rock through this and I can't thank you enough. A family is the most important thing in the world and I thank you for your love and support".

Bancroft was caught by TV cameras trying to tamper with the ball using sandpaper, triggering a dramatic series of events that led to the banning of the three players and coach Darren Lehmann standing down from his role.

The same punishment was also given to former vice-captain David Warner, whilst third co-conspirator Cameron Bancroft received a nine-month suspension.

It has been a hard month for the 28-year-old, who was banned by Cricket Australia for one year following his role in the ball tampering saga to rock the Newlands Test against South Africa.

CA chief executive James Sutherland said the sanctions had to be severe because of the damage done the reputation of Australian cricket. Every single person in Australian cricket? Yep. They (Smith and Warner) are like the cream on the top, when it comes to big tournaments.

"To me, respect's worth more than all the gold in the world".

Justin Langer, who was formally appointed the coach of Australia's men's team for all formats on Thursday, received the whole-hearted support of Darren Lehmann, his predecessor.

"When I think about Cameron Bancroft and Steve Smith, they love the game of cricket more than anyone I know and they are great kids". That's why it's such a surprise they made the mistake they did.

"How people view us, that's really none of our business".

"If we can keep mentoring them and helping them, and they want to keep getting better and they want to meet the standards of the Australian cricket team, then of course they'll (all) be welcomed back". "We've got to get better at playing overseas, we become a great team if we win overseas and at home, so that will be something for us to aspire to".
