While the progress will have no immediate implications for Surrey, the county with whom Graeme Smith has a long-term connection, it would mean that if he retires from international cricket, then he would be qualified to play for them without counting as an overseas player.

As per Sport24, Graeme Smith and Deane have been in Dublin in current days to tie up the details. Smith will lead South Africa in a Test series against Australia next month, the very first of which starts in Centurion on February 12, the report said.
