Former South Africa skipper Graeme Smith has been appointed as tournament director and brand ambassador of the Ram Slam T20 Challenge - South Africa's premier domestic T20 tournament.

"When Graeme showed a desire to learn about the business of sport, it was clear to me that he would be the ideal person to direct and promote the RAM SLAM tournament as we look to build on the success of last season," said Cricket South Africa (CSA) chief executive Haroon Lorgat.
