‘Pooran will learn from his mistake’

BRISBANE: Steven Smith believes his former CPL team-mate Nicholas Pooran will learn a lot from his recent suspension for ball tampering.

Pooran became the latest player to be found guilty of ball tampering - the second after Sri Lanka’s Dinesh Chandimal following that Cape Town Test - and was suspended for four T20I matches.

Smith had previously played alongside Pooran for Barbados Tridents, and the former Australia captain said that the latter would gain plenty from the introspection forced by the offence and its penalty.

“Everyone is different, every board is different, and the way they deal with certain issues. For me, I copped it on the chin... it is what it is.“I know Nicholas, I’ve played a bit of cricket with him and he’s a talented player and someone with a bright future,” Smith said.“I think he’ll learn from his mistake and move past it. “I don’t feel hard done by. It was a long time ago now. I’ve moved past it and I’m focusing on the present.”
