Profile

Racing enthusiast Will Smith is an opening batsman whose career has fluctuated significantly. He has been part of four Championship-winning sides but has never convinced as a consistent performer with several years of healthy runscoring mixed in with lean campaigns. Most of his career has been spent with Durham, whom he captained to the 2009 title but he will begin a new chapter at Hampshire in 2014.
