Profile

Ben Wright has forged himself a steady, if unspectacular, career as a middle-order batsman since making 72 on his Glamorgan debut in 2006. His highlight came in a 40-over cup semi-final victory over Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl when Wright plundered 47 in 28 balls to help his side to their third Lord's final. He is contracted until the end of 2015.
