Shockwaves as cricket coach resigns

The resignation of South Africa’s cricket coach Mickey Arthur has been described as a shock move in the entire cricket world.

The resignation comes just three days before the Proteas leave for a tour of India.

It is generally accepted that Arthur’s relationship with South African captain Graeme Smith led to the surprise move by Arthur.

Sports reports says Arthur’s timing could prove to be problematic.

He has tendered his resignation just four days before the team is to leave for India.

His right hand man, Vincent Barnes is also said to be considering resigning.

Cricket bosses are not commenting on the turn of events.

However reports say former fast bowler Corrie van Zyl has been appointed caretaker coach and will go to India with the Proteas for the series of two Tests and three one-day internationals.
