Jeroen Smits (born 21 June 1972) is a former Dutch cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman who usually occupies the position of wicketkeeper.

For many years, since his debut in cricket's ICC Trophy on 20 February 1994, Smits has been backup keeper to Reinout Scholte and called upon when and where necessary. Since 2002, he has involved himself in Dutch league games. He captained his country in a game against Scotland in the 2007 World Cup, and in the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 captained his side to a win over hosts England, to date their most significant cricketing victory by some margin.[1] In October 2009, he announced his retirement from international cricket.
