Hampshire start T20 Blast campaign against Glamorgan

Jimmy Adams is eager to show off Hampshire’s six appeal again tonight as they go looking for a fourth straight win.

The talented Royals opener played his part in hitting a remarkable seven consecutive sixes in tandem with opening partner Michael Lumb in the rain-affected t20 win at Kent on Sunday.

And the Rose Bowl punters will need to keep their wits about them or bring their crash helmets if the big-hitting pair get going again as Glamorgan visit in tonight’s Friends Life t20 showdown (7pm).

Adams said: ‘T20 is a game where you can’t be conservative – you’ve just got to go for it.

‘You’ve really got to go out there and show what you can do from the first ball.

‘Sometimes it comes off for you and sometimes it doesn’t but we’ve done well so far.

‘There’s a good buzz around the place and we are looking forward to getting out there again.’

It’s been an extraordinary change in fortunes for the county who struggled this term before the start of the t20 campaign.

But the defending champions have shown they mean business and are not prepared to give up their crown without a fight.

Adams said: ‘We only won 50 per cent of our games in this format last year and ended up winning the tournament.

‘With a bit more consistency, we can get ourselves into a good position again.’

And Adams is hopeful the supporters will turn out in numbers after some healthy attendances so far.

He said: ‘It’s great having big crowds.

‘It makes a difference so hopefully we can give them something to cheer about again.’
