New contract for David Wainwright

December 10 2007

Yorkshire have announced that left arm spinner David Wainwright has signed a new contract that will keep him with the county until 2010. Wainwright was sponsored by the Corridor in 2007 and made great strides during the season. He established himself as a regular in the One Day side. The official press release from the club states:"The Yorkshire County Cricket Club is delighted to announce that David Wainwright has committed his future to the white rose. The slow-left arm bowler who enjoyed his most productive summer to date at Headingley Carnegie in 2007 has signed a contract that will take him through until the end of the 2010 season. David (22) became an ever present member of the one-day side, finishing the 2007 campaign with 17 wickets at a cost of only 21.39 runs apiece, with a man-of-the-match best bowling of 3-6 against Durham Dynamos in The Twenty20 Cup at Headingley Carnegie in June. David said, “I’m really pleased to sign a new deal with the Club. 2007 was a terrific season to be playing for Yorkshire and the work doesn’t stop now. I want to cement my place in the one-day side and work my way into Yorkshire’s LV County Championship team.” Stewart Regan added "It is always good to see a young Yorkshire player do well at the Club. David produced some tremendous performances in 2007 and this new 3-year deal is a reward for the hard work he has put in at the Club.”

Good news ... but what happens if Rashid doesn't get picked for England? Yorks will have a big problem keeping 3 spinners (Rashid, Wainwright & Lawson) happy.

And it could be the sting in the ale

We had to contend with that last season...

I know David is frustrated with his lack of games in the 4 day version...Whenever I have seen him play he has a great action in my opinion and good variety...Lawson will be the one that suffers more next season from not playing...presuming Rashid doesnt get taken away of course...

Good news! It seems that he can't have been totally p****d-off by the Imran Tahir debacle at the end of last season. Not such good news for Lawson;does anybody know how long he has left on his contract?

Fully deserved after an excellent season, hope he gets a few more 4 day opportunities, a great prospect.

Yorkshire's most important spinner in reality.

Rashid will be off with England within 12 months.

Lawson is erratic and yet to show he's someone to rely on.

Wainwright has performed in tight one day situations, can bat better than Mark and for me could be a long term servant of YCCC.

Lucky to have three such talented young men,some counties have no spinners,be in no rush to unload anybody.

Sometimes the most illuminating viewpoint is the neutral one.

I agree that all three should remain on the books. Although that may change if Azeem Rafiq continues to develop his game.

I disagree, I think that if Lawson, in particular, is to improve he needs to play first class cricket, I would like him to be loaned to another county side for next season, as long as they almost guarenteed him a first team place, if he was fit. A good legspinner needs to bowl lots of overs to learn his craft.

Certainly judicious use of the loan system could be to our advantage.

think Wainwright should be above Lawson pecking order based on form last season an dhe also seems to have a good grounding and background with intelligence to go with it if he has just done a degree at Loughborough.

he also brings more variety to the apin attack and sounds keen to work on his batting.

Should academic intelligence be a requirement for playing?

I believe his degree was sports based so yes. Add to that the fact that he was at the best uni for sport in the country and able to work on his game at the National Cricket Performance Centre then definitely!

I first saw Wainwright as a very young-looking lad playing for the 2nds at Todmorden. He looked outstanding then.

Subsequently he played at Northampton when Dawson was injured, and failed to take advantage of a pitch on which Panesar and Brown had turned it square. Lawson also played without success in that game.

This is my only worry about him - does he actually spin the ball? It was good to see him do so well in the 1-day game in 2007 and he should have had his chance at Hove rather than Tahir - though I appreciate I'm being wise after the event.

Anyway, I look forward to seeing David play in 4-day cricket this next summer. Please.

Have you, or anyone else on here, seen Rafiq bowl?

If so, does he have an orthodox action?

I'm afraid not. But apparently he has two doosra's and a dazzling smile...

I saw Rafiq bowl at Scarborough last season, Academy match v Durham.

He looked fairly orthodox to my non-expert eyes, with plenty of enthusiasm and good control for a kid.

Durham won because they had a batsman called Andrew Smith, who was even more impressive than our own Joe Root. I think we'll hear more about both of them. Root has been promoted by Yorks, I see.

That's just me being daft. There was some report or other last season saying Azeem had 57 varieties of delivery or some such. So I started referring to him as Azeem "Working on a second doosra" Rafiq.
