CRICKETER Adam Hose enjoyed a dream debut for his new club, inspiring them to a five-wicket NatWest T20 Blast victory over Lancashire Lightning on Sunday.
Hose, 24, who joined Warwickshire from Somerset on a three-year deal last week, smashed 76 runs from 43 balls for their T20 team, Birmingham Bears, at Edgbaston.
His innings, a T20 best, helped his side chase down Lancashire's 174-8.
The former Ventnor cricketer tweeted: "A rollercoaster week....but thank you so much for the messages of support.
"Buzzing to get my first win as a Bear."
