'I walked away': Smith's biggest regret


//

Banned Australian cricketer Steve Smith revealed his biggest regret from the ball tampering scandal in South Africa.

Smith spoke to media extensively about the moment that led to a disgraceful chapter in Australian cricket history, cost him captaincy of the national team and led to his suspension from all forms of international and domestic cricket for 12 months.

It was seven words Smith uttered to Cameron Bancroft and David Warner which the banned batsman has reflected on extensively since that fateful March day in Cape Town.

"I don't want to know about it," Smith recalled he said.

"And I walked away, so that was my chance to stop something.

"That was my failure of leadership."

Smith said it has been a difficult time for him and his family since the ball tampering saga erupted, but he has been embraced by his local cricket club, and is confident of plotting a path back to the Australian team.

"If I'm honest, it's been tough at times," Smith said.

"I'm just moving forward day to day and doing what I need to get an opportunity to play again.

"Nothing is for certain. I'll keep working hard and if I get that opportunity that would be great.

"The Australian public has been really kind, and really forgiving.

"I still have a lot of work to do to win back the respect of the Australian public."
