Will Smeed announced himself as the latest young batter off Somerset's production line when he hit 82 off 49 balls in only his second professional game, as an 18-year-old against Gloucestershire in the 2020 Vitality Blast. Smeed had been marked as one to watch throughout his days in the county's academy, not least when he and Marcus Trescothick scored hundreds in the same 2nd XI innings when he was only 16.

A product of King's College Taunton, where he was three years below Tom Banton in the same boarding house, Smeed impressed enough in the 2021 Blast season to earn himself a deal as an injury replacement for Birmingham Phoenix in the inaugural Hundred. He was a breakout star in that tournament, hitting 36 off 13 balls on debut and finishing with a strike rate of 172.91 as the Phoenix topped the group stage and reached the final.
