As every single blogger knows, as every single one of my friends know and as every single one of my family members know I am a huge supporter of Graeme Smith. Having said that I can no longer hide behind the truth. What is the Truth you say? Graeme Smith is completely out of sorts in limited over cricket and is not only letting his team down but more importantly letting himself down. Smith is still a mighty Test cricketer and no one can deny that, he still punishes bowling attacks around the world, he had a bit of a flop against
Sri Lanka making only one half century but that happens to the best of batsmen.
It’s funny how things pan out isn’t it? After all Smith is third on the list of most T20 runs scored on the planet, far, far ahead of any other South African (I think JP Duminy sits 7th or 8th)
Anyway I’ve now come to my senses and have made myself a deal, If Graeme Smith does not drastically improve in the remaining 4 ODI matches against Sri Lanka I will drop my support for him in Limited overs cricket for good and join the ever increasing voice to have him removed from the ODI squad. Graeme you have four matches left to prove yourself to arguably one of your biggest fans and supporters. Fail and that support turns to anger, Succeed and prove me wrong.
It’s sad watching such a great cricketer go through such a prolonged period of Hell, good luck Smith, you gonna need it buddy
