Smith to skipper Welsh Fire in Hundred

Steve Smith will skipper Welsh Fire in English cricket’s new Hundred competition two years after being stripped of the Australia captaincy for his role in a ball-tampering scandal. Smith will lead a side that includes Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc as well as England World Cup-winners Jonny Bairstow and Liam Plunkett, together with rising star Tom Banton and West Indies paceman Ravi Rampaul. Smith lost the Australia captaincy for his role in a ball-tampering scandal in 2018. “It’s an honour to be asked to captain Welsh Fire in the first year of The Hundred,” said Smith.
