On the domestic front he has played 91 first-class matches along with his 127 one-day domestic matches and 33 Pro20 games.

Nashua Cape Cobras coach Shukri Conrad, said :"We are extremely pleased to be signing a player of Robin Peterson's calibre, experience and attitude. He is successful and talented in all forms of the game and we look forward to him turning-out in the blue and gold of the Cobras."

Peterson is due to make his first appearance for the Cobras as early as Saturday, in their historic "Clash of the Champions" game against the IPL T20 Champions, Rajasthan Royals, at Sahara Park Newlands, starting at 16:30.

    Are we getting a new coach as well? Please? The Cobras won the 20/20 championship, but I think that's more down to indiviual performance by the likes of Gibbs and Langeveldt than to good coaching. Look at the SS series and 45 over championship results...pathetic!

    Don't know if this is a good move, Henderson is there and he is a probably the best spinner in SA at present.

    Yes please! We need a new coach - what has Shukri done worth shouting about. If I recall correctly, he was dumped by the Lions for non-performance, but the Cobras saw fit to employ him. This is taking transformation too far (I am incidentally of the same hue as Shukri). Arguments that the Cobras have been hard hit by absentee players due to national commitments don't hold any water - they have been absolutely pathetic in the Supersport Series and this is an insult to the backup talent available.
