Bizarrely released by Essex in 2011, Wrighty has proved one of the Bears' best signings of recent times. In white-ball cricket, either with the new ball or coming on first change, he bowls with pace, persistence and skill and has the ability either to attack and hunt wickets or to change tack and bowl with guile with more focus on restricting the scoring.
Wrighty has delivered some crucial spells with a white ball and was a big influence for the Bears on their way to their lifting the Royal London Cup in 2016. It was his immaculate, first-change spell that halted Surrey's early charge in the Lord's final and turned the tide the Bears' way. Chris has the skills required to cope with the high pressures that T20 cricket imposes on bowlers - and the composure to execute them.
