Steve Smith apologises for ‘slip of emotions’
Dharamsala, Mar 28: As the Border-Gavaskar Series 2016-17 drew to a close with India reclaiming the title, Australia captain Steven Smith sought apology for his slip of emotions in the series.
“At times I have been in my own bubble and have let my emotions slip. I apologise for that. But I have really enjoyed playing in this series and it has been a great learning curve for me as a captain and [for] our team as well,” Smith told Ravi Shastri in the post match conference of the fourth Test at Dharamsala.
Smith marked the series as one of the best he has played and praised Indian team for their efforts.
“(This has been) A magnificent series, probably one of the best I have been a part of so far. I thought we have played some very good cricket throughout the series, we probably had our opportunities at times. But credit to India, they are a fantastic cricket side, particularly here at their own backyard. If you give them a sniff they are probably going to take it. Congratulations to India for winning the series 2-1,” he said.
