A truly iconic captain’s knock

2008-08-08 00:00

IN a single innings, Graeme Smith managed to secure a series win for his team and sow such confusion in the opposing ranks that the home captain walked the plank.

Smith deserves immense credit for this performance. His team seemed down and out at Lord’s, but fought back to take the spoils. Previously hotheaded, he has mellowed without weakening his outlook. He has also put his batting back together. Nothing is harder for a captain than losing his own game, for he feels that he cannot look his charges in the eye.
