Cape Town - Cape Cobras and Western Province Cricket Association CEO André Odendaal is set to leave his post after a decade in charge.

Odendaal, 60, told Die Burger's website he'll leave his position in January next year.

He believes the time is right to pursue other interests.

"It's a good time to retire after the number of titles we've won in the last while, and also the good season the team had under Paul Adams (coach) this year. I'm bowing out on a high note."

The Cobras won the four-day Sunfoil Series this past season.

They also reached the final of both limited overs competitions, sharing the 50-overs title with the Titans after the final was washed out, and losing in the T20 final to the Dolphins.
