Adams captured three for 27 in the win against The Unlimited Titans at Kingsmead in Durban, his best T20-performance yet.
But it was his two for 19 against the Sunfoil Dolphins (that helped to set up a 7-wicket win) and his two for 14 in three overs against the bizhub Highveld Lions at Newlands that turned heads.
Adams has been a step ahead of the competition. He has used the Yorkers and his slower off-cutters well in between deliveries of up to 140 km/h.
Adams said that the three to four-month stint with Langeveldt definitely helped him to improve his consistency.
Asked about his mental approach on the field, Adams said: “I know I can do anything on the field. There will always be pressure. But Charl told me that I should stay in the moment, stay calm and assess clearly on what I want to achieve. He has told me not to overthink the situation.”
On Sunday, Adams produced a match-changing double-strike which set the Lions-chase spinning out of control. He removed Neil McKenzie and Jean Symes, two of the most prolific Lions-batsmen, in the space of five deliveries.
The Lions, in pursuit of 155 for a win, were dismissed for a paltry 77 and the Cobras recorded an emphatic 77-run win.
Asked about the highlights of the season, he said the three for 27 against the Titans at Kingsmead was obviously something special. “But to be honest, every time I step onto the field in the Cobras-jersey, it is a personal highlight.”
