County Championship round-up: Jimmy Adams proves he remains a dangerous opponent
Thursday 25 April 2013
Batsman of the day
The international career that Jimmy Adams once had in mind may have passed him by but the Hampshire captain remains a dangerous opponent, as Worcestershire discovered when the 32-year-old left-hander carried his bat for 219 in a total of 500 for 9 declared at the Rose Bowl. It was the third double-hundred of Adams' career and his highest score since his career-best 262 against Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge in 2006.
