First impressions count, they say, and the one left by Adam on his Bears debut in 2017 will live long in the memory.
After joining from Somerset mid-season he made his bow in a T20 against Lancashire Lightning at Edgbaston and thrilled the crowd with a stunning 76 from 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! "Probably the best debut I've ever seen from a Warwickshire player," commented Bears legend Ian Bell.
Now, Isle of Wight-born Adam can't wait to get cracking in all formats after his chances in championship cricket last season were limited by the productivity of a top-order led by Ian Bell and Jonathan Trott. With Trott having retired, opportunity knocks for Adam this time round.
