Profile

A Kiwi cricketer of a Caribbean descent, Andre Adams has had a relatively shorter international career. A hard hitting bowling all-rounder, Adams could not manage to keep his place in the national side, due to various performance-related inconsistencies.

“Dre” made his ODI debut against Sri Lanka in 2001, and a year later, went on to play the only Test match of his career against England. However, a back injury on the West Indies tour in 2002 almost sidelined him from much action, with Jacob Oram replacing him in the team's bowling attack. Adams was a part of the New Zealand side in the 2003 ICC Cricket World Cup, but soon after, was dropped due to loss of form. Despite his all-round abilities, fingers were pointed at him, which ultimately put him into wilderness. But, he was again included in the ODI series against England in 2004, following which he signed with Essex to play county cricket. A couple of successful seasons there ensured he got his form back, but that didn't help either as Adams lost his national contract in 2007, after playing his final ODI against Sri Lanka.

Angered by the selectors' negligence, Adams signed a long-term contract with Nottinghamshire in 2008 and emerged as the most successful bowler in the club. He was the leading wicket-taker at the end of the 2010 season. He then joined hands with the rebel league in India and played for two years. Adams also plies his trade on the domestic front for Auckland, where he has been equally successful. Playing for the Auckland Aces, he took 29 wickets at a stunning average of 8.07 in the 2007-08 season. He was then included in the Aces squad for the 2011 Champions League T20.
