An attacking and a hard-hitting batsman, Jon-Jon Smuts first came into the limelight around 2008. It was in 2007 that Smuts made his first-class and List A debut but it wasn’t until the 2008 Under-19 World Cup that he was noticed. He may have scored only 163 runs in the tournament but his only fifty came in the all-important semifinal in which he became the top scorer (58) for South Africa Under-19. He even was a part of the South African squad that won the 2010 Emerging Players Tournament in Australia.
