Adrian Shaw became Glamorgan second team wicket-keeper in 1987 and for many years, Shaw was in the shadow of Colin Metson. However, Shaw's superior batting, as testified by a series of centuries in the Second Eleven Championship, led to his promotion over Metson during the second half of 1996 when the county's selectors attempted to strength the county's batting.
Earlier in his career, Shaw also played rugby for Neath, and his competitive nature has been a major asset to Matthew Maynard. The former Young England wicket-keeper responded with some fluent innings in 1997 as Glamorgan won the County Championship. He also played some important innings in one-day games, and his gutsy partnership with Steve James against Hampshire, saw Glamorgan not only to an important second round win in the Nat West Trophy, but helped to set up a run in the competition which took the Welsh county to the semi-final stages of the country's premier one day competition.
In 1999 Shaw hit a career best 140 against Oxford University at The Parks, but illness saw him miss the final few weeks of the season. A severe groin injury in 2000 thwarted the popular Glamorgan wicket-keeper once again, but not before he had impressed behind the stumps, especially in the match against the West Indian tourists where he deftly stumped Brian Lara for a duck.
Shaw lost his place in the county`s 1st XI in 2001 following the emergence of Mark Wallace, but
Shaw continued to be an enthusiastic and pugnacious wicket-keeper batsman in second team cricket, and in
2002 the popular cricketer was appointed as Glamorgan`s 2nd XI captain. His team only lost one
Championship match in 2002, and were in contention for the Second Eleven title until the final
days of the season.(Contributed by Andrew Hignell - October 2002)
Stats highlights from the fourth day in Ranchi, where Cheteshwar Pujara batted for ages and the Australians toiled like they haven't had to in many years
For the third time this home season, the team took the lead after its opposition put up 400 batting first but the Ranchi effort was special
Did Virat Kohli get his tactics right on the final day in Ranchi? Going by his fast bowlers' lines and R Ashwin's late introduction, the Indian captain took a few puzzling calls
On a pitch most suited for him on this tour, David Warner, the T20-specialist-turned-Test star, got his eye in and then played a wasteful shot. The grown-up knock came from another T20 specialist, instead: Glenn Maxwell
Sudhir Gautam, uber Tendulkar fan, is now rooting for a new sport
Three days ahead of the fourth Test, the surface at the HPCA Stadium wore a smattering of grass. Will that, or Mohammed Shami's availability, subject to fitness, change India's combination?
South Africa are set to play 14 Tests in nine months soon, so both fast bowlers, despite being sent home from New Zealand, should not lose hope
This Bangladesh are crazy if they think they can beat Sri Lanka in their own den. Right?
Under duress again, Shakib Al Hasan and Mushfiqur Rahim forged a match-winning partnership and contributed in the second innings to help Bangladesh create history
