Former New Zealand international Andre Adams has been the spearhead of Nottinghamshire’s bowling attack in recent times.
In an excellent run of form, Adams took more than 50 county championship wickets through the 2009,10 and 11 seasons, a feat equaled only by Monty Panesar and Alan Richardson.
Despite that disappointment of missing much of the following season with a hamstring issue, he had the satisfaction of returning career-best figures last season, collecting 7-32 during a stunning performance against Lancashire at Old Trafford.
His appearances in Nottinghamshire’s 2013 campaign were also limited by injury, though when fit showed every bit of the class that has defined his career.
Earlier in his career Andre played in one Test match and 42 One Day Internationals for New Zealand but called time on his international availability when he was overlooked for the 2007 World Cup.
Whilst considering his options he became aware of an interest from Notts and he has continued to play in both hemispheres ever since.
Although Andre’s strong suit is his lively medium-pace bowling, he is also a fearsome hitter of a cricket ball.
His prowess with the bat has brought the likeable Kiwi three first class centuries although his best for Notts remains the 84 he scored against Yorkshire, at Scarborough in 2009.
Last season, he scored 80 against Middlesex in a flurry of tail-end hitting, scoring five maximums to help Nottinghamshire retain their status in the LV= County Championship’s top division.
