Steven Smith‘s crying videos and images made the day for the media. Social media, too, was full of it. Smith and David Warner have been banned from International cricket and domestic cricket for a year and not allowed to captain the side for two years. Cameron Bancroft, on the other hand faced a ban for nine months.

Before Cricket Australia announced the ban, Smith was handed a suspension for 1 Test along with 100 per cent match fees by ICC. The yearlong ban received mixed emotions from all corners.

Many Indian players have shown sympathy towards the Australian players while some have requested the media to go easy on them. Here are some tweets.
