Smith Signs Durham Deal

Will Smith has agreed a new two-year deal with Durham, just over a year after losing the captaincy and his place in the team. The 29 year-old said of the news, "I've enjoyed this season a lot. I've felt comfortable in the middle and what's just as important to me as scoring the runs is knowing that I've played some important innings, which have helped us win games. I'm delighted to be staying with Durham for another two years.
