Michael Klinger, General Manager of the Washington Freedom, said:

This is a huge moment for us and we look forward to Steve spreading the word about Washington Freedom to all his fans. Organisationally, Steve has been part of Cricket NSW from Pathway levels until now and our system has seen him develop into the man he is today. The Washington Freedom and Steve Smith relationship is one we would like to continue to develop in years to come. 

He’s a great player in all formats of the game, and you only need to look at his performances in the Big Bash League for the Sydney Sixers (where he averaged 86.50 and scored at a strike rate of 174) to see his commitment to the shorter form. This is another sign that together Major League Cricket and Washington Freedom mean business.

Sanjay Govil, Founder and Owner of the Washington Freedom, added:

As a team and as a new league, we have not only an opportunity but a duty to grow American cricket. Bringing Steve to help promote the team will undeniably help us do this. He’s a true great of the game and a fantastic person, who is respected the world over. Smith joins as part of our sporting partnership with Cricket New South Wales, with players and coaches also moving on to our roster for our debut MLC campaign.
