Profile

Jimmy Adams, a talented opening batsman and brilliant fielder, has been a fine servant for his home county, Hampshire, for over a decade. Higher honours have passed him by but at domestic level he has enjoyed great success in one-day cricket and grew into a fine captain after his appointment in 2012. Captaincy had come late, however, as he was well pat his 30th birthday and it gradully weighed on him. By the end of 2015 he had conceded both the limited-overs and Championship captaincies to James Vince. His Twitter account neatly summed up the pressures on a county pro with family responsibilities: "Lucky husband & father (if a little tired), part time dog walker & crabby cricketer."
