Graeme Smith (captain), 25
Left-hand opening bat, occasional off-spin bowler. 104 matches. 3,683 runs @ 38.36, 6 centuries, 22 fifties, strike rate 80.23. 49 catches.
Smith is now well established as South Africa's captain after taking over a month after the 2003 World Cup as a 22-year-old. Bats aggressively at the top of the order and becoming increasingly useful with his off-spin. His captaincy is based more on aggression and keeping the opposition under pressure than any fancy tactics.
