Profile

David Wainwright is a terrific story of how a career can be revived. He began his time at Yorkshire, where as a left-arm spinner he was one of crop of young slow bowlers on the staff. Initially he enjoyed some success, especially in one-day and Twenty20 cricket, and reached as far as England Lions level when he played three times for them in 2010. However, first-team opportunities, particularly in four-day cricket, were limited at Yorkshire due to the presence of Adil Rashid and Azeem Rafiq and in 2011 he used a clause in his contract to ask for a release.
