Cape Cobras - Cape Cobras fast bowler Beuran Hendricks has weighed in on the ongoing case between head coach Paul Adams and the team.

Adams was scrutinised recently following a complaint instituted against him by a number of players that wanted to see the back of the former Proteas spinner.

Hendricks said that some of the guys wanted something fresh, which is why they wanted to take things into their own hands.

"From my perspective, there were guys who felt that something fresh was needed and they took it into their own hands what they felt they should do," Hendricks told Times Live.

"The process happened very smoothly and it went in the correct manner.”

On Monday, the Western Cape Cricket (WCC) board expressed a vote of confidence for the Cobras coach and the signed contract with the coach remains in place. Adams still has two years left on his contract.

According to Times Live, the Proteas bowler said that the team is settled and there is no bad blood, as they all will like to focus on the season ahead.

"I'm glad that everything has settled now with the fact that we can move on with Paul still on board," Hendricks said.

The Cape Cobras boosted their coaching staff by appointing former Proteas batsman Ashwell Prince, who will assist Adams, as well as Alan Dawson, who is hired as the new convenor of the selection committee.

Adams took over the head coaching position of the Cobras in 2012 and has led the Cape Town-based franchise to six domestic titles.

The Cape Cobras start their season off on October 5, when they play in their first four-day match against the Lions at the Wanderers.
