Profile

A top-order batsman with aggressive instincts who has been with Leicestershire from the age of 15, Greg Smith's development accelerated sharply in 2008. By the end of that season, he had made his first-class and senior one-day debuts and marked his first appearance for England Under-19s by scoring 157 in the opening Under-19 Test against New Zealand in Taunton and following up with an unbeaten 150 in the second Test. His club side, Kibworth, also won that year's Cockspur Cup.
