Graeme Smith has been unveiled as the new tournament director for South African cricket’s domestic Twenty20 competition.

Smith, a former South Africa skipper, retired from international cricket in March and was unable to see out his contract at Surrey due to a knee injury which required surgery in June.

One of the 33-year-old’s main tasks, in his new role, will be to recruit international players to the Ram Slam T20 Challenge which starts in November.

In a statement he said: "I am excited by this opportunity and looking forward to putting something back into the game. 

"Players love playing in South Africa and our T20 competition has the potential to become a tournament of choice for international players from around the world."
