For such a great big hulking piece of South African beef, Graeme Smith hasn’t half got brittle fingers. They’ve now been in the news on five separate occasions, having been broken that many times in roughly two years.
Just imagine what it would be like if Smith had a thumb war or a game of slapsies with Brad Haddin. I have no doubt that the outcome would be horrific for at least one of them.
Smith’s participation in South Africa’s first Test match of their home series against India, which starts December 16, is now in doubt.
