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.

His Test stats as batsman and bowler compare favourably with some of the best allrounders, which is why his second-innings dismissal in Wellington is all the more puzzling
