A left-arm spinner and right-hand bat, Tom Smith toured the South East counties with spells at Sussex, Surrey and Middlesex before going on loan to Gloucestershire in 2013, a move that was made permanent later in the year with a three-year contract.
He made his first-class debut for Sussex in 2006 but by the end of 2012 had only played another 10 matches. He was given more of a chance in one-day cricket, mainly for Middlesex whom he joined in 2010 and took a useful 38 wickets at 25.15 in T20 with a best of 5 for 24 against Kent in 2010.
Smith was Gloucestershire's No. 1 spinner in 2014 and took 32 wickets at 40.43. He showed an eye for the special occasion when he marked the official opening of the Bristol Pavilion with a hat-trick against local rivals Somerset in the Yorkshire Bank 40-over competition. He was also a member of the Gloucestershire side that won the Royal London One-Day Cup against Surrey in 2015.
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
