Empire’s Dwayne Smith had a prolific weekend of cricket slamming a ton and taking 3 for 21 against Kingsgrove on Saturday and returning on Sunday to hit 71 and capturing 2 for 14 against Swansea.
The timing of his performance couldn’t come at a better time, when the USA team was beaten by Jamaica in a three game series. Smith is definitely one of the better all-rounder around the country and should be given a chance at the highest level with the USA team.
