Georgia Adams

All-Rounder & Captain

Born in Derbyshire, daughter of former Sussex and England batter Chris Adams, Georgia Adams has pathed her way to the top of the women's game and is one of the most prolific run scorers in the country.

Captain and opening the batting, Adams is a fluent and, when needed, a brutal ball striker, who can also contribute handy off-spin.

Adams made her debut for the Vipers in 2016 before a brief stint at the Loughborough Lightning.

2020 was a real breakthrough year for the Vipers, top scoring in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy with 500 runs.

The Sussex batter led the Vipers to back to back Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy victories in 2020 and 2021 and is thought of as one of the most talented players in the country not to have international recognition.

She recorded her career-best score of a whopping 154 off 155 balls against Western Storm in the 2020 Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, as the Vipers racked up 288-1, winning the match by 32 runs.

Her best List A bowling figures came a year later, as she took 4-35 in the final of the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, with best T20 figures to follow in the 2022 Women’s County Championship – 4-16 for Sussex against Hampshire.

In May 2022, Adams was named as the new Captain of the Lord's Taverners XI.

As of the end of the 2023 season, Adams has 17 scores of 50 or more for the Vipers, with one century - a career best 154 against Western Storm.

She has also taken 41 wickets in 50-over cricket, and 27 wickets in T20s.

Adams first started getting serious about bowling when Vipers Head Coach Charlotte Edwards put her down in one of the pre-season bowling lanes, and it’s safe to say that decision has paid dividends for the all-rounder.

In 2023, she was the Vipers’ leading wicket taker in the Charlotte Edwards Cup, and second overall for the club, with only the returning Linsey Smith claiming more scalps than Adams.

She also picked up her best figures for the Vipers when she recorded 4-30 against Central Sparks at Wormsley in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, and overtook Charlie Dean to become the team’s all-time wicket taker, an accolade which Dean also received in 2023.

In the same year, Adams became the first player to score 2,000 runs for the club, reaching the milestone against Northern Diamonds at South Northumberland CC in September on her way to 82 in a thrilling three-run victory in the north east.

Whilst she started the 2023 season with a duck, the skipper soon found her stride, and scored a total of 795 runs in 21 matches, with a best of 94* against The Blaze as the Vipers visited the Isle of Wight for the first time.

She scored six half-centuries across the season, four of which came in succession in the Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy, with a further seven scores above 30.

Adams also received a call-up to the England A squad to face Australia A in a three match one-day series at Loughborough, where she scored a best of 40.

In the winter of 2023-24, Adams won the WBBL with Adelaide Strikers, led by Southern Brave assistant coach Luke Williams, and was an overseas pro for New South Wales as she scored 354 runs – the second most of any NSW player.
