Profile

Tom Smith was thrilled to be named captain of Lancashire before the start of the 2015 season, an appointment that underlined how he had become one of their most reliable performers, but he led them in just one game before a serious back injury threatened to end his career. Smith needed surgery on a bulging disc and missed the entire season, handing over leadership duties to Steven Croft, before making an emotional return in a NatWest T20 Blast tie against Derbyshire in May 2016. "It is like making my debut all over again - with 10 years' experience behind me," he said.
