Angry Chappell Wants to Cut Ties with India


New Delhi, Jan 24: Former India coach Greg Chappell reacted angrily to Virender Sehwag's recent comments that the Australian betrayed the trust of players and said he has decided to cut all ties with Indian cricket.

In a recent interview, Sehwag had said that Chappell had betrayed the trust of the players by leaking information to the media and selectors and that he was not comfortable with the Australian.

"I am not interested in India. Not interested in Indian cricket," he was quoted by a website.

"You can check with Kiran More (what information I was sharing with him)", Chappell said. Kiran More was the chief selector during most of Chappell's tenure as coach.

"I am now not going to be associated with the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) also", he said.

The RCA had hired his services for its academy in Jaipur as consultant. He had also been entrusted with the task of spotting and grooming Twenty20 talent by IPL's Jaipur franchise, owned by Emerging media.

Chappell is now the new Head Coach of the Cricket Australia Centre of Excellence (COE) in Brisbane.

    we shouldnt have invited him again back to India as he is responsible for India not winning the World Cup with his politics in/out of cricket field and senior players sided with him and got the post of captain whilst others remain mum and didnt take up with our indian players.
