Profile

A left-arm bowler, Mike Smith was arguably the foremost exponent of swing bowling in county cricket in the 1990s. Yorkshire-born, but unwanted by his home county, Smith made his Gloucestershire debut in 1991, having previously represented the Combined Universities. Of slight physique, possessing neither great pace, nor the height at 5' 9" to create awkward lift, he relied heavily on movement in the air to trouble batsmen.
