Adam Griffith Bio

Adam Richard Griffith is a professional cricket player from Australia known for his dangerous strike bowling abilities. Standing tall at an impressive height of 198cm, Griffith’s large frame has aided him in making breakthroughs on pitches that tend to favor batsmen.

Unfortunately, Griffith has faced a series of setbacks due to injuries over the past few seasons. This trend continued in 2008-09, with Griffith being ruled out of the entire summer following a knee reconstruction. The previous season, he managed only three Pura Cup games and three one-day outings as he battled to stay fit. In fact, his injuries almost caused him to miss Tasmania’s Pura Cup triumph. However, despite not being at his best, he played a crucial role in removing the dangerous Phil Jaques at the start of New South Wales’ second innings, bringing the team closer to victory.

Griffith’s injury-limited performance in the 2006-07 season saw him take 17 Pura Cup wickets at an average of 35.64 from just six games. This was a significant decline compared to his previous two seasons, where he had impressive back-to-back performances that had supporters calling for his selection in the Australian national team. In the 2005-06 season, he topped the Pura Cup wicket-taking list with an impressive 48 wickets at an average of 25.85. The previous season, he took 45 wickets at an average of 28.77. Furthermore, he reached a career milestone of 100 first-class wickets in the same season, earning him Tasmania’s Player of the Year and Pura Cup Player of the Year awards.

Griffith’s potential was recognized at the national level when he represented Australia A in 2003-04. However, injuries plagued him during that season as well, leading him to consider a move to Western Australia, which is known for its fast and pace-friendly pitches. Despite the tempting prospect, Griffith ultimately chose to remain loyal to his birth state of Tasmania.

Off the field, Griffith is known for his professionalism and dedication to the sport. He has worked hard to overcome his injuries and continue making valuable contributions to the team whenever he is fit to play. Despite the setbacks, Griffith remains highly regarded as one of Tasmania’s most dangerous bowlers when he is in top form.

As of September 2008, Griffith’s career statistics included 48 wickets at 25.85 in the 2005-06 season, 45 wickets at 28.77 in the 2004-05 season, and a total of 100 first-class wickets. While injuries have hindered his progress in recent years, Griffith’s potential as a strike bowler continues to garner attention and support from the cricketing community.
