Hinds And Lawson To Leave Derbyshire
Wavell Hinds and Mark Lawson will be leaving Derbyshire after the club opted not to renew their contracts for the 2010 season.
Former West Indian international all-rounder Hinds departs after scoring 1248 runs in first-class cricket in two seasons while Lawson leaves after just one season following a switch from Yorkshire.
Head of Cricket John Morris explained the decision:
“Wavell has added some international class to our batting line-up as well as plenty of valuable experience in the dressing room for the past two years.
“However, with our young batsmen coming through and the Kolpak penalties to be taken into account, we have decided to look at different options for 2010.
“Mark has given his all for the cause in 2009 and he is a talented bowler who performed well for us at times, particularly in limited-overs cricket during the early part of the campaign.
“However, his opportunities to play first team cricket became few and far between during the second half of the campaign and, again, we have elected to explore different options ahead of next season.”
