Kelvin Smith

Hailing from Bowhill in the Murraylands, exciting local talent Kelvin Smith was originally named as the Adelaide Strikers Community Rookie in BBL|04 but earned a promotion to the senior list following an injury to paceman Chadd Sayers.

The 21-year-old left-handed batsman made his debut in the final match of the season against the Melbourne Renegades, partnering with fellow South Australian young gun Travis Head to be 41 not out at the end of the innings and secure a confidence-boosting win for the Strikers.

A talented junior and former Australian U19 representative, Smith was a member of the Cricket Australia XI which took on South Africa in a T20 tour match in November. Recently he was selected to travel to India, training with the National Cricket Centre at the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai.
