Former Proteas spinner Paul Adams has been named the new coach of Border.
That’s ahead of the restructure of South African domestic cricket from next season.
Border will compete in division two in the 2021/22 season, with the ultimate goal to secure promotion to the top league in two years.
Adams claimed 134 Test wickets for the Proteas between 1995 and 2004, and as a coach has won five domestic trophies with the Cape Cobras.
He has also been involved with the South Africa ‘A’ and Proteas teams in the past, where he worked as an assistant coach and spin consultant, respectively.
