A Hampshire County product, Wright couldn't bag a contract with the senior team and as a result, had to try his luck elsewhere to make a progressive career. Having tried his luck with Middlesex and Essex, he was released by the latter towards the latter half of the 2011 domestic season. Warwickshire's bowling coach at that time Graeme Welch - who had previously worked with Wright at Essex - and the club's director of cricket, Ashely Giles persuaded Wright to play for the club on loan for the rest of the 2011 season.
As it turned out, Wright racked up a couple of fifers in his first three Championship games and was later offered a new three-year contract. Little did Wright knew about what was to happen during the three year stint he had with the club. In 2012, Wright was handed the responsibility of bowling with the new nut to which he responded with 62 First-Class wickets and remained a vital cog in the side to help them seal the Championship title. He later translated his success in the CB40 league and if not for an unexpected injury midway through the Lord's final, Wright may have ended up as the tournament's leading wicket-taker that season, and, a double title in his kitty, of course.
His accomplishments during the 2012 season, however, didn't go unnoticed as England Performance Programme offered him a spot to stimulate his chances of playing for the national side. And Just as he gained his mojo back in 2013, a stress fracture hampered his progress for the rest of the season.
A similar injury haunted him for most part of the 2014 season eventually causing a huge dip in his progressive career. Although he played for many Counties earlier in his career, Warwickshire backed his abilities and he paid them back through persistent hardwork and bundles of wickets across formats. He had 11 five-wicket hauls and 20 four-wicket hauls (nearly 550 wickets across formats) by the end of August 2018. Wright also spent a year in Sri Lanka where he represented Tamil Union in domestic cricket during 2005-06 season.
