Chris Smith (cricketer, born 1958) Wikipedia
Born on 15 October 1958 in Durban, South Africa, Smith was unable to play for the South Africa due to their exclusion from international sport because of the apartheid regime, but played for England through his parents nationality. However, Smith played only eight Test matches, never establishing himself in the side. He had the misfortune to be dismissed by Richard Hadlee from his first ball on Test debut at Lord's, but was selected the next winter for the tour to New Zealand and Pakistan. There he made some useful contributions, including a score of 91 in Auckland. He was much more successful for Hampshire, enjoying a successful career with that county, and scoring more than 40 first-class hundreds. He was one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year in 1984.
After he retired from first-class cricket, he settled in Western Australia, and became marketing manager of the Western Australian Cricket Association.
Chris Smith is the older brother of fellow England Test player Robin Smith.
