Next few months would be extremely tough for banned Steven Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft: Mark Taylor

Steven Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft

Mark Taylor, the former Australian captain, said that the “next few months are going to be extremely tough” for the banned Steven Smith, David Warner, and Cameron Bancroft.

“The next nine months are going to be extremely tough for him, for David Warner and for Cameron Bancroft, because they’re going to have to watch more of the Australian side right through the summer, here in Australia,” Taylor told Channel Nine.



“But in the long run I think it’s good for all three of them. He made a bad mistake, as did the other two guys, three or four months ago, and he’s paying a very high price for it. I think the penalty they’ve received is very harsh but very fair, and I think we’ve now set a tone for world cricket that we’re not going to allow this sort of cheating to go on,” he said.

“They’ve obviously got to keep a spot in the side, but really you’re just one of 11 batsmen in the side. I think that position of Australian captain is so closely scrutinised, if you also think you have to be the best player and the best leader it’s a big load to carry,” he added.
