Director of Cricket, Kim Barnett, says he’s delighted to secure a multi-talented player like batsman Daryn Smit for the 2017 season.

Smit, who qualifies as a non-overseas player, will be available for all three forms this summer, subject to successful completion of registration.

The batsman, who has represented South Africa A and was selected for the Proteas’ 2009 T20 World Cup initial squad, has appeared in 125 first-class matches scoring 5,711 runs at an average of 37, including nine hundreds.

He has also featured in 107 List A games hitting 1,870 runs and 80 Twenty20 fixtures scoring 701 runs with an impressive strike rate of 121.

Barnett said: “Daryn is a multi-talented player. He can keep, bowls spin, fields brilliantly and is a very good batsman. He’s got a good first-class and one-day record, and we’re delighted to get Daryn for all forms of cricket.”
