Cape Town - Western Cape Cricket (WCC) on Friday confirmed that Richard Pybus has resigned as coach of the Cape Cobras.

"CEO Andre Odendaal said the board will discuss the matter at its meeting on Monday evening and issue a response following that," WCC said in a statement.

His resignation follows the team's failure to defend their title in the local T20 Challenge series as they missed their chance of reaching the play-offs.

Pybus, a former Pakistan and Titans coach, took the Cobras to three titles including the 2011 SuperSport Series and T20 titles in his two-year stint with the side.

    Failure is hard to swallow for most sports.

    He did say that he did not have to attend the Cobra matches that is how confident he was in them, i guess that approach did not work :)

    Shows he's "chicken" & can't simply face up to the team's failure in T20 & look at how to correct this, going forward. He's obviously a very good coach & has done well with the Cobras winning all the trophies, over the last year & a half. Perhaps he reckoned he was going to be fired, so "ran" & resigned first.!! PLEASE take note Majola & MANY other sports administrators & politicians in SA, who almost NEVER resign.!!!!
