One of many impressive all-rounders on the books at Derbyshire, Wainwright is predominantly known for his left-arm spin bowling. After several years on the fringes at his home county of Yorkshire, he prospered when given the opportunity to feature regularly at a new club. In his first full season with Derbyshire in 2012, following a successful loan spell, Wainwright picked up 50 first-class wickets at an average of 31, aiding LV= County Championship promotion. A new four-year contract was the reward for a player who would still appear to have his best years ahead of him.
