South Africa's most successful captain and the commissioner of the Betway SA20 joins as our Global Cricket Ambassador.
We are proud to announce that Graeme Smith has joined Betway’s roster of ambassadors.
The brand’s new Global Cricket Ambassador was South Africa’s youngest ever captain at 22 years of age, and went on to become the most successful Test captain with 53 wins, having scored over 17,200 runs in international cricket.
Smith, who retired from playing in 2014, is still heavily involved in the sport and can be regularly heard as a commentator and pundit on JioCinema, an on-demand streaming service based in India.
Having previously held the role of Director of Cricket for Cricket South Africa from December 2019 to March 2022, Smith led the creation of cricket’s most exciting new tournament – the Betway SA20 – where he is now the League Commissioner.
The Super Group-owned brand have built an enviable sponsorship portfolio across a number of sports around the world, including football in the Premier League, Bundesliga and La Liga, tennis in eight different countries, and deals within the NBA and NHL in the US.
Anthony Werkman, CEO of Betway Group, said:
“We’re immensely proud to have South African cricket legend Graeme Smith join the Betway Family.
“He was an incredibly good player in his day and has since gone on to be a leading figure within the sport, so it’s great that he’s joined as our new Global Cricket Ambassador.
“Betway remains committed to being the number one betting brand within cricket and we continue to enhance the experience of the sport for fans around the world.”
Graeme Smith said:
“I’m hugely excited to become Betway’s Global Cricket Ambassador.
“Betway are one of the biggest brands in global cricket and I’m really looking forward to be working with them to bring great content and insight to fans of the sport worldwide.”
