Steve Smith: When I’m out in the middle, everything else is a blur

The former Australia captain was happy to be back on the field of play on Friday.“Honestly, when I’m out in the middle, everything else is a blur,” he said after the game. “I just concentrate on what I’m doing. It’s almost like my haven, I guess, if you want to call it that.“It’s been a difficult time in my life, there’s no doubt about that...But I’ve accepted my punishment,
I’ve accepted what I’ve gone through. And I’m moving forward. Part of my sort of rehab is playing cricket as well. That’s what I love doing. Smith was also ordered to serve 100 hours of community service by Cricket Australia, which he chose to carry out with mental health foundation Gotcha 4 Life.“We’ve been talking about mental health and it’s been quite therapeutic for myself, but also the kids in the schools I’ve gone to - I know we’ve made a big difference.”
