The turmoil of the match-fixing saga that rocked South African cricket at the turn of the century was still wearing off when Graeme Smith made his entry into the Protea national team. Under the captaincy of Shaun Pollock, South Africa suffered yet another setback in the 2003 ICC World Cup that they hosted. Pollock's resignation saw the rise of South Africa's greatest captains till date, Smith was handed the captaincy at a young age of 22. His captaincy and batting eased into a hand-glove combination for the team.
