YORKSHIRE spinner David Wainwright has signed for Derbyshire CCC on a month’s loan

The 26-year-old left-arm spinner, who will join the County Ground club on July 2, will provide cover while Tom Knight represents England Under-19s in the One Day International Series against South Africa.

Wainwright faces competition for a place in the Yorkshire line-up from the likes of Adil Rashid and Azeem Rafiq, but boasts an impressive record in all forms of the game.

Capped by the White Rose in 2010, Wainwright has taken 77 first-class wickets in 33 appearances including two five-wicket hauls.

He also boasts an impressive economy rate in the limited overs forms of the game, and with the bat he has two first-class hundreds.

Head Coach Karl Krikken said: “We are delighted the opportunity to sign David has presented itself and I expect him to be integral for us during a crucial period of the season.

“Looking at David’s record and watching him bowl it is clear he has all the attributes to be a very effective cricketer.

“A month of first team cricket with Derbyshire will give him the opportunity to stake a claim. If he does that everyone will win from this loan deal.”
