Narrow escape for Paul Adams

2012-06-26 10:17

Cape Town - Former Proteas spinner, Paul Adams, who is widely tipped to be named the next Cape Cobras coach on Tuesday, had a narrow escape while driving last Sunday.

Adams tweeted: Brick just thrown into my windscreen on the N2 in Cape Town! Thank god not injured. Beware people.

Adams added that he wasn't injured and thankfully the brick didn't go through the windscreen.

Adams, 35, is reported to be the favourite for the Cape Cobras job after the position was left vacant after Richard Pybus resigned in March this year.

Western Province's amateur coach Salieg Nackerdien is rumoured to be the only other realistic contender for the position.

    He can't bat , can't bowl . Now his going to coach Kallis, Smith , Dale Steyn ?

      At this level it's about people management dude. He'll get in specialist coaches for batting, bowling and fielding like every professional team. Good luck Gogo

      Yazeed; What an empty comment! Do you think all cricket coaches are specialits at batting, fielding, bowling and wicket-keeping? Why do you think GK has got a specialist in each of these?

    Fans, let's give Paul Adams a chance. He has done well for himself and for South Africa and no doubt is very determined to prove all the critics wrong. Congratulations Paul and best of luck to him, his captain, his squad, his franchise and his fans - whether they are for or against.

    He cannot bat yes but he could bowl. Do yourself the favour and look up his stats and you'll find out that he was one of the better spinners of his era. Not all coaches of national sporting even played the game at national level.Look at Graham Henry, Heynecke meyer etc.Yes this a cricket matter but I can mention a few more cricketting coaches that did not play at national level but are coaching national teams. Our former coach and now the Aussie coach is a point in case.So give the man a chance to ply his trade and let's criticice him after that.
