Brighton College now have not one but two public relations officers - both of them cricketers - after Adams agreed to work part-time for them. He joins Clare Connor, the recently retired England captain, who is director of public relations.

Adams has also announced that he will hand over the Sussex captaincy by the end of 2007 at the latest, in order to concentrate on his batting. "I feel ten years are enough for any county captain," Adams told The Times newspaper on Tuesday. "I'm still enjoying it, but I don't want to go on too long."

As well as helping out with PR, Adams will be undertaking his Level Four coaching award, which will further enable him to coach Brighton College's students.
