Mark Adair is one of Birmingham Bears hot young prospects.

The tall seamer from Belfast is yet to make his NatWest T20 Blast debut, but this season Mark will be looking to take his chances in training and be rewarded with a call-up for the first team.

"I'm looking forward to the NatWest T20 Blast season this year. Hopefully the boys can continue our T20 form."

Mark Adair

Mark has been involved in Ireland's international set-up throughout the age groups and he will be aiming to follow in the footsteps of Birmingham Bears players Boyd Rankin and William Porterfield and represent Ireland at the highest level.

Mark is form a sporting family, his Dad was a goalkeeper and his brother plays rugby at a high standard. Mark was undecided whether to pursue a career in rugby or cricket until he signed a trial contract with Warwickshire CCC in 2013 and since then he has never looked back.

In 2016 Mark signed an Academy contract with the club and he is definitely one to watch out for in the future.
