Gogga spins his web in the Cape!

HOMETOWN HERO Paul Adams has been selected as the new Head Coach of the Cape Cobras.

The Former Proteas star more commonly known as “Gogga” to fans, was called up to take over from Richard Pybus, now coach of the Bangladesh National Cricket team.

Pybus resigned from his position as the head coach of Cape Cobras in March this year with immediate effect, following conflict between him and the senior executive’s within the franchise.

Pybus was in charge of the Cape Town-based franchise for two seasons during which they won three titles.

Despite winning this season’s Franchise 1-Day Cup, the Cobras failed to defend their first-class and Twenty20 titles. They also failed to qualify for the Champions League T20 after finishing fifth in the MiWay T20 Challenge.

With Adams stepping into the fray, hopefully the Cape side can quickly return to those glory days.

Prior to being name coach of the Cape Franchise, Adams He was named Head Coach of the Western Province Cricket Academy in 2010 before being selected as assistance coach to Vincent Barnes for The New Age Impi side that was formed as the seventh franchise in this year’s domestic T20 competition.

Adams , a veteran of 45 Test matches (134 wickets) and 24 ODI’s (29 wickets) made his debut for the Proteas test side against England in 1995.

The Chinaman bowler was well-known for his unorthodox bowling action which quickly earned him 412 registered First Class Wickets.
