As the double-barrel name suggests, Tom Stapylton-Smith is our private school import from KZN, having learnt his trade at Michael House (apparently pronounced Maaakelhaas). Shockingly, then, he has turned out quite a nice kid, and one who has immediately settled into the Rollers, having made his debut in the 2017/18 season. Probably should be a bit quicker given he's almost as tall as Joel Garner, but he has done a fine job with the new ball, and also with the bat - he made his first ever 50 against a touring Indian side, and immediately phoned his dad to share the shocking news.
