Former England international Don Smith passes away

Don Smith

The ECB is saddened to learn of the death of former England international Don Smith at the age of 97.

Smith was England’s oldest living men’s Test player and enjoyed a distinguished career at Sussex where he scored nearly 17,000 runs and claimed 340 wickets from 1946-1962.

An all-rounder who opened the batting, Smith played three Tests for England during West Indies’ tour of 1957, making his debut at Lord’s. He later went on to coach Sri Lanka before settling in Adelaide.

The ECB sends its condolences to Don’s wife Lyn and his family and friends.
