Warwickshire County Cricket Club has agreed a two-year contract extension with batsman Adam Hose to ensure that he remains a Bear until at least the end of the 2022 season.
Hose (27) joined the Bears in 2017 and has become a regular fixture across all three formats, having made 15 First Class, seven List A and 32 T20 appearances to date. He was also part of the teams that reached the Vitality Blast final in 2017 and won Division Two of the County Championship in 2018.
His impressive credentials in T20 cricket have also seen him drafted to Birmingham Phoenix for the inaugural season of The Hundred in 2020, whilst he was also recruited by Wellington Firebirds in the 2018/19 Super Smash in New Zealand.
We also see Adam as an important part of our long-term plans in all three formats and his challenge now is to refine his red ball game and to build on this year’s maiden First Class hundred, versus Nottinghamshire.Paul Farbrace
Paul Farbrace, Sport Director at Warwickshire CCC, said: “Adam is a tremendously talented cricketer who has the ability to become a star of the white ball game, not just in the UK but in premier tournaments around the world.
“However, we also see Adam as an important part of our long-term plans in all three formats and his challenge now is to refine his red ball game and to build on this year’s maiden First Class hundred, versus Nottinghamshire.
“We certainly know that he is very motivated by this opportunity and have every confidence that Adam can continue developing to make more match winning contributions across all formats.”
Adam Hose said: “I was made to feel very welcome by the players, coaches, staff and Members when I joined Warwickshire in 2017. It’s a special club and I’m very proud to be a Bear until at least 2022.
“The management have shown great faith in me by extending my current contract for a further two years and I want to reward them for that by contributing more match-winning innings.
“We demonstrated that this young squad has character and could fight when the chips were down last season. With so many young players in the squad, we’re going to be much stronger from the 2019 experience and, if we can keep developing, we have every chance of being in a position to challenge for trophies again soon.”
