Profile

One of Tasmania's most dangerous strike bowlers when fit, Adam Griffith has been seriously curtailed by injuries over the past couple of seasons. The trend is set to continue in 2008-09 with Griffith ruled out of the whole summer following a knee reconstruction. In 2007-08 he managed only three Pura Cup games and three one-day outings as he battled to stay on the park, and the previous summer he almost missed out on Tasmania's Pura Cup triumph. A hamstring injury meant he had not tasted first-class action for two months but the Tigers considered him such an important weapon that they took their chances. He was not at his best but removed the dangerous Phil Jaques at the start of New South Wales' second innings to bring the celebrations closer. Griffith's injury limited him to 17 Pura Cup wickets at 35.64 from six games in 2006-07 after two impressive back-to-back seasons had Tasmania supporters demanding an Australian cap for him.
