Ben Wright forged a steady, if unspectacular, career as a middle-order batsman after making 72 on his Glamorgan debut in 2006. He retired at the end of the 2015 season with a first-class average the wrong side of 30 after 79 first-class matches.
He became a regular in the Glamorgan first XI across all formats from 2007 but his returns were not consistent and the last two seasons saw him only play a part-time role
But there were high points: a career-best 172 against Gloucestershire at Sophia Gardens in 2010, a century against Middlesex at Lord's that helped his team reach their highest ever total of 522 at the ground and a 40-over cup semi-final victory over Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl when he plundered 47 in 28 balls to help his side to their third Lord's final.
Wright toured Bangladesh with England Under-19s in 2005-06, the winter that followed his first regular season for Glamorgan second XI.

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
Also, which players have the most half-centuries without ever having made a hundred?
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
