Greg Chappell vs Senior Players
April 4, 2007 1:01am CST
Lots of words going back and forth in the press between Greg Chappell and senior players who want to remain anonymous. Who caused the most havoc in the team ?? I'd say it was Sourav Ganguly and he's still at it. Read my analysis of India's performance in the 2007 cricket world cup at http://meowlife.blogspot.com

I think some people like the author of this discussion like to jump to conclusions too easily. Sourav Ganguly has just made it back to the team, and I think hhis mind is more on performance than politics at the moment. If there is politics in the team, I think this is due to te useless fellow Greg Chapell, who has failed miserably to deliver results in his 2 year tenure, and his chocolate boy Rahul Dravid does not have the guts to stand out and speak against Chapell !!

We see the rift between Ganguly & chapell started because ganguly spoke out in open & revealed the coach's statement that ganguly should step down.So speaking out openly won't help solve the crisis the team is facing.It will pass away after sometime when the memory of the defeat fades away with a few wins at home or better outside. I can't agree that chapell has'nt done any good to the team.Before the WC team was full of confidence after thrashing Srilanka & it had set record 17 successive wins by chases when india was supposed to be poor chasers & it won the first series in test in carribean & won the first test in Souht Africa.So chapell's contribution can't be ruled out True he has caused a few controversies in the team but his successes can't be ignored.
