Wayne Law made his debut for Glamorgan 2nd XI in 1995, before spending the 1996 on the Lord's groundstaff during which time he also played for the M.C.C. Young Cricketers.
The promising right handed batsman and off spinner played for Swansea C.C. since his early teens, and in 1995 he played for England U-17. Law has also played for Wales and he made his first-class debut in 1997 for Glamorgan against Oxford University at The Parks, hitting his first ball for four.
Law also played in the last couple of Sunday League matches in 1997, and he impressed coach Duncan Fletcher with his natural flair with the bat, and graceful timing. Following Hugh Morris' retirement, Law got a chance in 1998 to stake a claim for a regular place in the 1st XI. He responded with a maiden century against Lancashire at Colwyn Bay, and in 1999 played a series of diligent innings, in particular at Blackpool, when he defied the wiles of Muttiah Muralitharan for over four hours.
However, he failed to win a regular place in the county`s side in 2000, and left the staff at the end of the season.(compiled by Andrew Hignell - April 2001)

England's defeat in Barbados, and their failure to win the series in the West Indies, is another black mark on Peter Moores' report card as coach. However, the team is moving in the right direction
They were labelled 'mediocre' by Colin Graves before series began, but in drawing this series 1-1 West Indies have shown both discipline and confidence, a cocktail that has rarely been present in equal measures in the Caribbean of late
It is time to empower the England coach to take full responsibility for the team: either back Peter Moores or sack him
England could do worse than appoint the outspoken, media-friendly former captain as their director of cricket
