South Africa captain Graeme Smith is expected to be back in England in time for the second Investec Test after flying home to attend the birth of his first child.

Smith cut short his team’s first-Test victory celebrations to be with his Irish wife Morgan after she went into labour.

Today he announced the news of Cadence Christine Smith’s arrival on his Twitter account.

Smith flew home on Monday, missing the Proteas’ two-day match against Worcestershire, but Cricket South Africa indicated that he will return in time for the start of their preparations for the Headingley match, which starts next Thursday.
