Bears batsman Adam Hose says the lads can’t wait to ‘get stuck in’ as the new Vitality Blast season kicks off this weekend, with a trip to Worcestershire on Friday before the first home match on Sunday against Leicestershire.

Hose said: “It’s good to be back at Edgbaston and training again. The boys are all excited and can’t wait to get stuck in against Worcestershire on Friday.

“The games will come thick and fast, we want to go and have fun, get around each other and hopefully put some good performances together and build some momentum.”
