    ‘It’s an honour to be named head coach for the Border region and I am excited to get to East London and to connect with the team,’ Adams said.

    ‘It’s an exciting time in South African cricket and an exciting time in the Border region. With the new restructure of professional cricket, it’s an opportunity to contribute and be part of building success in the region. I see my role at Border as one in which I have to help nurture a team culture and to get each player to perform at optinum level.’
