Profile

At the age of 17, Mark Adair was offered a trail by the Warwickshire County Cricket Club, a remarkable feat considering the country he hails from. And a few years later, on his County debut (September 2015), Adair removed Marcus Trescothick to claim his maiden wicket in First-Class cricket. In the same game, Adair remained the only not out batsman in both innings and nearly steered his side to victory against Somerset.

Born in Ireland, Mark Richard Adair hails from a sporting background and was also considered a potential Ireland superstar while in his teens. His father was associated with football as a prominent goalkeeper at a decent level, and his brother George Ross Adair, represented Ireland youth level cricket before playing a handful of games for the national Under - 19 side in 2011.

Renowned as a seam-bowling all-rounder, Adair had an impressive run with Warwickshire second elevens and eventually debuted for the Club at the end of the 2015 season. He was also called up to the Ireland squad to face Afghanistan in a five-match ODI series in July 2016. Unfortunately, though, Adair couldn't make his debut in that series and wasn't considered for the future tours with Boyd Rankin and Peter Chase posing greater challenges to his place in the side.

'Mark Adair has impressed me with his skills in the limited opportunities I have seen him,'John Bracewell, the then Ireland head coach acclaimed before selecting him for the Afghanistan series at home. Adair, albeit, kept working on his skills at Warwickshire and did reasonably well, when presented with opportunities. As Warwickshire's pool of fast bowling got better with resources like Olly Stone and Harry Brookes, Adair was released by the club at the end of 2017 season. He later acquired a trail with Durham second eleven and is currently waiting for his opportunities with the club and a recall from his national side of course.
