Team: Auckland
ODI debut: 10/04/01
Past World Cups: -

Right-arm fast-medium bowler
Right-handed batsman

For a player who regards himself as more of a front-line bowler, Adams' one-day batting average is respectable at just under 23.

He was brought into the limited-overs set-up in 2001 during the series against Sri Lanka.

He took one wicket on his debut, that of Sri Lanka captain Sanath Jayasuriya.

Adams played four matches in the VB Series in Australia in 2001/2002, but failed to appear in a winning New Zealand side.

But he learned from the experience and during the one-day series against England in early 2002 took two for 25 and three for 13 in consecutive matches.

His six wickets on his Test debut also helped New Zealand to victory over the tourists.

A stress fracture to his lower back has limited his progress, but Adams should be fighting fit in South Africa.
