Smith admitted cheating.I don't know how more truthful he can be!.I was comparing him to other national captains who straight out denied it after it was clearly proven and they were charged. I was also noting the vast difference in punishment handed out by their respective cricket associations. I really enjoyed watching the recent T20 games between Aust and NZ and thought BOTH teams were very respectful of each other. Virtually all Australian cricketers are respectful. I don't like seeing Warner screaming at players in Test matches (even if his wife had been abused), however, the Aust media and public's view that the remainder of the team are 'grubs' is simply incorrect. I cant talk to previous Aust teams (and nor should many others) as I have only been watching a lot of the current team and been 'up close' to them. With the benefit of hindsight CA via Lehman should have been pulling Warner's head in, and to be fair Warner's behaviour was improving up until the South African series. However, the Australian media and public including many on this thread (most of them foreigners I notice) are ill informed about how well behaved and respectful the remainder of the Australian team is. Their view of the current Aust cricket team is simply wrong. If that view has been caused by the action of previous players, then CA is partly at fault for 1) not controlling the coach/players in the past, and/or 2) not taking action to improve the image of its current players/coach in the eye of the Aust public. Normally, I wouldn't have such strong views but Smith is possibly the best batsman the world has ever seen (his averages were heading towards Bradman) and the Aust cricket association, media and public, for whatever reason, banned him for 12 months after the ICC banned him for 1 game consistent with previous offences!.for something that happens in every Test match to varying degrees. I am ashamed Smith made a mistake, he should have stopped it even if he wasn't involved, but I am more ashamed by CA and Australian society in general.
