Lumb, who joined Notts from Hampshire in 2012, has been forced to retire with immediate effect due to an ankle injury.

The South African-born player helped Notts to the YB40 and Royal London One-Day Cup trophies in 2013 and 2017 respectively.

While Smith has opted to step away from the professional arena.

Smith, a former England under-19s player, signed for Notts from Leicestershire for the start of the 2015 season but leaves Trent Bridge with immediate effect in order to pursue a career outside of the game.
