Cape Town - Cape Cobras coach Paul Adams says Wayne Parnell’s future as an
international cricketer is as a full-fledged all rounder.
It was recently announced that the 25-year-old would join the Cobras from
the 2015/16 season having represented the Warriors for his entire career.
“Many of his friends and his girlfriend live in the Cape. It definitely played
a role in his decision to move to the Cape,” Adams told Netwerk24.
“I haven’t yet sat down and chatted to Wayne about where he currently sees
his career at. He is still overseas, but I believe he can create opportunities
for himself as a full-fledged all-rounder.
“That’s definitely how we’ll utilise him at the Cobras. With Justin Kemp to fulfil
a smaller role next season, there will definitely be opportunities for him (Parnell) to
shine as an all-rounder.”
Parnell is currently in England playing for Glamorgan in the local county T20
Parnell is a product of the Warriors system, having been schooled at
Grey High School in Port Elizabeth and coming through the junior Eastern
Province representative teams.
He has played four Tests, 46 ODIs and 33 T20 internationals for the Proteas.
