Smeed has signed a white ball contract with county team Somerset. Smeed will now only play ODIs and T20 matches for this county under the terms of this agreement. Smeed, a young batsman for England, made his England Lions debut earlier this year.

He impressed a lot while playing for Somerset in the last three seasons of the T20 Blast. While playing for Birmingham Phoenix, he scored a century, becoming the first player in this tournament to do so.

Scored a century at the age of 16

At the age of 16, Smeed made his debut in the spotlight by scoring a century in first-class cricket. That too against the team captained by former England captain Marcus Trescothick. He scored this century for Somerset’s second-division team against Sussex’s second-division team. But he never participated in a first-class match. In his share, he only has one List-A match. He has taken part in 55 T20 games concurrently.
