Cedric Ivan James Smith was an English cricketer who played in 5 Tests from 1935 to 1937. Known as "Big Jim," Smith joined the MCC ground staff in 1926 and played for Wiltshire until 1933. He qualified for Middlesex in 1934 and took 172 wickets at 18.88 to finish 6th in the bowling averages in his debut season. He was selected for the 1934-35 MCC tour of the West Indies on the strength of this performance and played in every Test there. He also appeared for England against New Zealand at Old Trafford in 1937. In 1935, Smith was elected one of the Wisden Cricketers of the Year for his achievements in the 1934 season. A six foot four inch fast bowler, Smith's accuracy and appetite for hard work earned him 676 career wickets at 17.75 before the onset of World War II effectively ended his career.show more
