Paul Adams, the former South Africa spinner, has been unveiled as the new coach of the Cape Cobras. Adams takes over after Richard Pybus - who has since been handed the Bangladesh job - stepped down at the end of last season, citing differences with administration in the franchise as the reason for his stepping down.
Adams has previously held coaching roles with the Western Province amateur side and the South Africa A side, and was the assistant coach of the now defunct seventh domestic franchise, Impi.
Cobras chief executive Andrew Odendaal said there are "high expectations" of Adams to lead the traditionally strong franchise. The Cobras are the current one-day cup champions and had held the domestic first-class and Twenty20 titles last season, but failed to defend their titles in 2011-12.
