Profile

Mark Lawrence's first-class career statistics make less than impressive reading, and in five seasons in and out of the Oxford University side his 42 wickets came at a rate of one every 20 or so overs and at a cost of 70 each. He described himself as the "least bad left arm spinner at the University" and that was probably close to the mark.
