HAMPSHIRE Cricket legend Jimmy Adams will be the guest speaker at the Dorset Cricket Society's first winter meeting on Thursday.

Adams, who last month announced his retirement from the first-class game, will discuss his career and take questions from the floor at Hurn Bridge.

Admission for non-members is £5 but new members are always welcome.

The meeting starts at 1.45pm and spectators are advised to arrive at 1.30pm.

Adams, 37, made his Hampshire debut 16 years ago and excelled both as a player and as club captain for the county.

He made the decision to call time on his career following the conclusion of this year’s campaign.

Adams played more than 450 matches for Hampshire, scoring 19,601 runs across all formats, including 27 centuries and 108 fifties.

He was an integral part of several one-day triumphs, winning 50-over trophies in 2009 and 2012 while also contributing to two T20 titles in 2010 and 2012.

A four-day title as skipper also came in 2014 when Adams led a strong Hampshire side to the top of County Championship Division Two, securing promotion to the first-class top-tier where they have remained for the past three seasons.
