On behalf of everyone involved at Sutherland District Cricket Club, I would like to thank Steve Smith for his contribution to the Club during the season and wish him all the best in his return to international cricket.
Smithy had a huge impact on the club and the 1st grade team this season, including being part of our T20 Premiership team and coaching the team in Adelaide at the recent National Premier League T20 Championships. No request was too much, from doing the cap presentations to the Sutherland junior rep teams through to engaging with the many supporters that came to games to watch him play. As a Sutherland junior, he is a great example of the pathway from our junior ranks through to professional cricket.
We are all very proud of what he has achieved to date and look forward to watching Smithy back performing on the international stage where he belongs.
