Former Australia captain Steve Smith shed a tear while delivering his heartfelt apology for ball-tampering incident in the third Test against South Africa.
Bancroft was caught on camera attempting to alter the condition of the ball by using sandpaper.
702 listeners weighed in on Smith's apology with some saying he is human and to err is human while others were saying it's crocodile tears because he knew what he was doing.
I am not convinced... there are a lot of unanswered questions, the bowlers must have known that the ball was tampered with... you can only feel sorry for someone if they are telling the truth. I think he is the foreman so i feel sorry for him because he is taking the fall... but if he asking for forgiveness then he must tell the truth. He must name and shame the bowlers.— Dennis in Fourways, Caller
I don't feel sorry for him. He was caught with his hand in the cookie jar and suddenly he wants to cry crocodile tears saying I'm sorry it was an error. Why couldn't he just say we cheated? The best way to deal with it is to immediately say sorry I shouldn't have done what I've done.— Nkele in Sandringham, caller
