Adam Hose, an explosive and dynamic top-order batsman, originates from the Isle of Wight and honed his skills through the Hampshire age groups. He burst onto the scene by making his first-class debut for Somerset CCC against Pakistan in July 2016, swiftly followed by debuts in both limited-overs formats. His exceptional performances led to a one-year contract extension with Somerset until the end of 2017. Later, he joined Warwickshire on loan in July, ultimately signing a three-year contract with the renowned Test Match club based in Birmingham.
During the 2017 county season, Adam made a significant impact, impressing with his ability to strike the ball forcefully while maintaining a classic batting technique. He made an unforgettable Warwickshire debut, playing a match-winning innings of 76 runs off just 43 balls against Lancashire. Ahead of the NatWest T20 Finals day, Ashley Giles, Warwickshire’s then Director of Cricket, hailed Adam as a player with the potential to become the next Kevin Pietersen.
In December 2018 and January 2019, Adam showcased his skills in New Zealand’s Super Smash tournament, averaging an impressive 49. He further established his prowess by achieving his maiden first-class century against Nottinghamshire in June.
The year 2020 saw Adam shine in the Vitality Blast for the Birmingham Bears, as he notched his first T20 century with a remarkable 119 runs off just 64 deliveries against Northants.
Consistent performances in the shorter format of the game attracted the attention of franchises worldwide. His packed winter schedule included playing in Australia, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. Adam also made a significant impact for the Northern Superchargers in the Hundred, and he will continue to represent Leeds in 2023.
At the conclusion of the 2022 season, Adam decided to move from Warwickshire to Worcestershire in search of greater opportunities across all forms of cricket. Hose has started promisingly for his new county, making an impact in both the Championship and the Blast.
