South-African-born all-rounder Smith started his county career at Derbyshire before joining Essex in 2012. A former Proteas Under-19 international, Kolpak player Smith was handed an opportunity in the Derbyshire second XI in 2004. By 2007 Smith, with the ability to bowl off-spin and seam, was a first-team regular at Derbyshire, for whom he hit 3,724 runs and took 133 wickets in 75 first-class matches. He opted to link up with Essex in 2012, instantly becoming a senior player, but has struggled to kick on in his three seasons at the club.
