Wayne Madsen

A determined top-order batsman, the affable Madsen has flourished at Derbyshire, whom he led to the LV= County Championship Division Two title in his first season as captain in 2012.

After featuring in the Lancashire Leagues, Madsen moved to the UK on a permanent basis in 2008 and displayed superb form the following summer.

By striking three centuries in his first nine LV= County Championship appearances, he quickly established a regular position in Derbyshire's side.

Madsen reached three figures on four further occasions in 2010 and, despite suffering a subsequent dip in form, inherited the club captaincy following Luke Sutton's retirement.

Both he and Derbyshire prospered thereafter, with Madsen striking 928 runs, including a career-best 231 not out against Northamptonshire, in a memorable promotion-winning campaign.
