Wayne Madsen's reputation blossomed in 2013 with the greater attention given to Derbyshire following their promotion to Division One of the Championship. Derbyshire were relegated immediately but their captain, Madsen, proved a formidable opponent, scoring 1,221 Championship runs and being the first player to reach 1,000 runs in Division One. He was named as Championship cricketer of the year by the Cricket Writers' Club and was also rewarded with a new three-year contract.
He stepped down from the Derbyshire captaincy before the 2016 season after five years during which his undemonstrative leadership style had commanded great respect, suggesting that he still harboured England ambitions, but although theut although the runs and the county awards kept coming, England's interest was not quickened.
Madsen, who was born in Durban, South Africa, started his career with KwaZulu-Natal and played played four seasons for them - playing in the Lancashire leagues in the off-season - before heading to the UK full time in 2008.
He first secured a two-year Derbyshire contract in 2009 after cracking two centuries in his first four games with the county and averaged 57.78 in the County Championship in his first season.
He became captain in 2012 and guided Derbyshire to promotion in his first season - their first honour for 20 years. His personal highlight was a career-best 231 against Northamptonshire and he shared a ninth-wicket partnership of 261 with Tom Poynton which fell only 23 runs short of the world record.
Back-to-back hundreds in the Royal London One Day Cup in 2014 - his first two in the 50-over format - enabled him to lead Derbyshire to their first quarter-final for nine years.
Outside cricket, he also spent some of his off season coaching Belper Ladies hockey club.
