The Australia born England Cricketer was once considered as a great all-rounder for the English cricket team. He was also appointed as the England Skipper in ODIs for a short duration. He is the elder brother of Ben Hollioake who died in 2002 in a car accident. Adam last played representative cricket in 2007 and went on to pursue his family business in Australia. In late 2008 during the recession, the financial position of his company weakened and by 2011 he was declared as bankrupt.

After that, Hollioake turned into Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) to earn his bread and is doing a decent job over there. He is known for his mental toughness. This is an example where destiny can take you from one place to another. From being a successful cricketer to a bankrupt and then bouncing back to be a pro in MMA, Adam has suffered a lot and is an inspiration for others.
