Vijayawada: It came as a shock to the members of the South Zone team to find that they did not have a coach-cum-manager to guide them in their crucial tie against holders North Zone in the opening league encounter of the Duleep Trophy cricket tournament here on Thursday. Even as the South Zone team members reached here from Kerala, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, Goa and Andhra Pradesh this morning, their coach-cum-manager was yet to arrive.The cricket authorities had appointed Hyderabad's Arshad Ayub as the coach-cum-manager for a month's tenure, but the former Test off spinner reportedly wanted to be in office for the entire league phase, according to official sources.Ayub did not get any response from the authorities, and this could be the reason for him not reporting here, the sources added.UNI
