EX­CLU­SIVE PIC­TURE SMITH IS HAV­ING A BALL IN NEW YORK

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - - NEWS - -79 P78 RT SPO

DIS­GRACED Aus­tralian cricket cap­tain Steve Smith has set up camp in New York in the af­ter­math of the ball-tam­per­ing scan­dal.

Smith was spot­ted look­ing re­laxed at Ho­tel 50 Bow­ery bar, in Chi­na­town, as he downed beers with two male com­pan­ions.

“He was laugh­ing and jok­ing with his mates,” said an on­looker. “He looked pretty happy and very re­laxed – more like a lo­cal than an Aussie crick­eter.”

Smith ar­rived at the bar, fre­quented by lo­cals, in the late af­ter­noon and spent sev­eral hours en­joy­ing beers in the sun­shine.

Af­ter a blis­ter­ingly cold win­ter, New York’s first day of sun­shine brought the pun­ters out in droves.

Mil­lions of Aus­tralians watched Smith’s teary press con­fer­ence as he apol­o­gised for his part in the ball-tam­per­ing scan­dal but no one recog­nised him as he qui­etly en­joyed a few drinks in his new lo­cale.
