Dan Smith played mostly for Sussex throughout his career, where he scored 17,000 runs from 1746-1962. He also took 340 wickets. According to his county club Sussex, Dan Smith wanted to do a rose flower business during his cricket career, but he couldn’t do it because of the high temperatures at the time. This time Lansing College offered him to become a groundsman and coach. He worked on this for almost 20 years.
In 1984, he was coached by the Sri Lankan cricket team. He held the position for some time. He later settled in Adelaide, Australia with his wife, Lynn. Last week, let us tell you that Alan Burgas, the world’s first-class cricketer, died at the age of 100.
