Gogga is new Cobras coach
Former Proteas spinner Paul Adams is the new head coach of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras.
CAPE TOWN - The CEO of Western Cape Cricket Andre Odendaal has exclusively told EWN Sport that Paul Adams is the new head coach of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras.
The franchise has opted for the 35-year-old ahead of three other candidates, and there could be some concern over his relative lack of experience as a head coach.
Odendaal admits they have taken a chance but said it is one they have calculated.
“There is a risk of going for a relatively young coach but Gogga has that x-factor and we have a great squad which we believe can keep up the good performances. We see him as the face of the future and he represents what our brand stands for.”
Odendaal said he has the full backing from the franchise in a tough job.
“Paul has shown his solid cricket credentials as a player in 45 test matches, and more recently as the Western Cape Academy coach, the high performance spin bowling consultant to Cricket South Africa and as a top flight television analyst. Western Cape cricket is backing him to succeed in a job with high expectations.”
