Adams excited about young SA spinners


Former South Africa spinner Paul Adams is excited about the slow bowlers that are currently attending a spin bowling camp ahead of the Proteas' tours to Bangladesh and India this year.

Not only are Proteas senior players going on tour, but the 'A' side will also be playing in India, while the South Africa under-19 side will travel to Bangladesh to take part in the World Cup next year.

The camp was designed to help the younger crop of spinners coming through, but has also seen Protea-capped players Dane Piedt, Simon Harmer and JP Duminy attend.

Adams feels the spin camp will benefit all the bowlers ahead of what is going to be two taxing tours to the subcontinent.

Adams, who took 134 Test wickets, said: "We have quite a young crop of spinners currently in our system, it is a great opportunity for them to grab that berth.

"Going now into subcontinent tours some of them haven't really been over and played there so it will be a great opportunity for them."

The Proteas will play two T20s, three ODIs and two Tests matches in Bangladesh next month.
