First impressions count, they say, and the one left by Adam on his
Birmingham debut last year will live long in the memory. After joining the Bears from Somerset mid-season he made his bow against Lancashire Lightning at Edgbaston and thrilled the crowd with a stunning 76 from just 43 balls. One of his sixes landed in the top-deck of the pavilion - that's one tall pavilion so that's one mighty hit!
"It's probably the best debut I've ever seen from a Warwickshire player," commented Bears legend Ian Bell after Hose's handiwork helped sentence the Lightning to defeat. And the Isle of Wight-born batter went on to contribute consistently as the Bears roared through to Finals Day.
The 25-year-old spent the winter further honing his skills in grade cricket in Australia and is champing at the bit for his first full campaign with the Bears. A T20 strike-rate of over 150 shows that he is a batsman who can take an attack apart.
