Dwayne Smith is a tall, aggressive and powerful player of the West Indies cricket team. In December 2003, he was called up to join the West Indian Test squad. But this changed on the final day of the third Test at Newlands, where he brought the calypso back to Caribbean cricket with a wonderful debut century. It was in the second century of Smith's first-class career that brought West Indies' run of seven consecutive defeats in South Africa. His batting style reflects both his temperament and his youth, as he is still inclined to lose his wicket under the influence of careless stroke play. His lurid hitting is matched by his athletic fielding, while his useful medium-pacers have already tasted some success at domestic level for Barbados.
