  • Description

    M.J.K. SMITH WILL CAPTAIN THE M.C.C. TOURING PARTY IN AUSTRALIA AND NEW ZEALAND THIS COMING WINTER, IT WAS ANNOUNCED AT LORDS YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY). ON SEVERAL TOURS ABROAD, SMITH HAS SHOWN HIS SKILL AT KEEPING HIS PLAYERS CONTENTED, AND HIS SELECTION WAS WIDELY EXPECTED.

    CRICKET COMMENTATORS SEE SMITH'S APPOINTMENT AS CAPTAIN MAINLY DUE TO THIS GIFT OF LEADERSHIP OFF THE FIELD. AS A TACTICIAN, HE IS ULTRA-MODERN, WITH AN ENTHUSIASM FOR FAST BOWLING. AS A BATSMAN HIS CURRENT FORM IS UNIMPRESSIVE. BUT ON OTHER TOURS HE HAS MADE SMITH HAS NEVER FAILED, ON MERIT, TO GET A PLACE IN THE ENGLAND TEAM.

    SMITH SPOKE TO THE PRESS SOON AFTER THE ANNOUNCEMENT OF HIS TOUR CAPTAINCY WAS MADE ABOUT CRITICISM OF HIS HANDLING OF THE SECOND TEST.
