ISLE of Wight cricketer Adam Hose has been picked to play for Hampshire.
He will line up for the county first team in a three-day friendly match against Cardiff MCCU at the Ageas Bowl, Southampton, starting on Monday.
It is the first time Hose, 22, has been chosen for the county and he follows in the footsteps of Danny Briggs and David Griffiths.
Hose's father, Jeff, played for Hampshire 2nd XI in the 1980s.
Hose is currently an MCC Young Cricketer, playing his second season in the scheme, which has been a breeding ground for greats such as Ian Botham, Mark Waugh and Ross Taylor in the past.
The Young Cricketers play against county second XIs.
