Profile

Ben Wright was handed his first representative honours when he was selected for the England Under-19 tour of Bangladesh in 2005-06. As with many of the top order, he struggled to come to terms with the conditions, but did make a promising 47 against Sri Lanka. He had made his second-team debut for Glamorgan towards the end of the 2004 season, a couple of months before his 17th birthday, and became a regular fixture in 2005 but was unable to force his way into the first XI. He has also represented Wales Minor Counties, and struck a match-winning 84 against a strong Cheshire side in the MCCA Knock-out trophy in 2005. He made 72 on his Glamorgan debut in 2006, but it was not until the following season that he became a first XI regular.
