‘It’s my haven’: Steve Smith finds joy back on the cricket field

STEVE Smith has opened up on a turbulent three months since his world came crashing down following the ball-tampering saga.Fronting media for the first time since a tearful press conference at Sydney Airport in March, former Test skipper Smith admitted he has had a rough time dealing with a one-year ban from international and domestic first-class cricket.That was given to Smith by Cricket Australia for his role,
alongside ex-deputy David Warner and Cameron Bancroft, in “sandpaper gate” in South Africa.“I have been up and down with my emotions if I’m being honest,” Smith said at a press conference at the Global T20 Canada league on Thursday.The 29-year-old said it was particularly difficult watching from afar as Australia suffered a 5-0 drubbing at the hands of England in the recent ODI series.“Watching the boys play in England, not playing as well as they could have, it was hurting me I couldn’t go out and help them win games,” Smith said.
