Who is Adam Griffith?

Adam Richard Griffith is a former Australian cricket player. He played first class cricket for Tasmania and also had a spell at Leicestershire. He played his club cricket for North Hobart Cricket Club.

Griffith represented his native state of Tasmania between 2002 and 2010, and was a member of Tasmania's first ever Sheffield Shield winning team in 2006–07. He took 158 first class wickets for Tasmania; at the time of his retirement he was the fifth highest wicket taker in the state's history. He also represented Australia A in limited overs cricket and had a spell playing in England for Leicestershire. As his career became increasingly affected by injuries, he retired in May 2011 at the age of 33. He immediately moved into coaching, first as the bowling coach for the Western Warriors, working under Mickey Arthur. When Arthur was appointed the coach of Australia, Griffith was promoted to the role of Western Australia's assistant coach.
