Perth Scorchers international signing Dwayne Smith will miss this weekend’s opening round of the KFC T20 Big Bash League.
Smith will miss Game 1 against Brisbane Heat on Sunday due to personal reasons which have prevented him from travelling to Australia.
“I’m learning to breathe and smile in this job,” Perth Scorchers coach Justin Langer said.
“We’re going to have to work our way around that and do the best we can without him.
“We’re working closely with him management group to see when he can arrive. Let’s just keep our fingers crossed.”
The Perth Scorchers squad for the Heat clash will be named on Friday.
