Graeme Smith’s record as captain
About Graeme Smith (from Wikipedia Page)
Graeme Craig Smith is a South African cricket commentator and former cricketer, who played for South Africa in all formats.
In 2003, he was appointed captain of the national team, taking over from Shaun Pollock.
He held the position of test captain until his retirement in 2014.
He is regarded as one of the greatest captains of all time in test cricket. At 22, he was appointed as South Africa’s youngest ever captain. He was the most capped captain ever when he played his (personally not captained) 102 test against England.
A tall, left-handed opening batsman, Smith is regarded as one of the best test match openers of all time.
During South Africa’s tour of England in 2003, he made double centuries in consecutive Test matches. 277 at Edgbaston, and 259 at Lord’s.
His 259 at Lord’s still holds the record for being the highest score made by a foreign player at this prestigious venue.
On 24 October 2013, Smith became the second South African and 12th overall to complete 9,000 runs in test cricket in his 112th test match.
