The Chappell Way

One of the reasons that I declined the West Indies offer to coach them recently was because of their short-term approach to what is a long-term problem. They didn't fully understand the philosophy that I espouse and that is behind the concept of how best to develop future champions. The West Indies Cricket Board wanted a quick-fix solution. What I wanted to bring was a system that was involved with the whole development process from Under-17, Under-19, first-class cricket and the 'A' team through to the Test team.
says Greg Chappell in this article titled Change Cricket's Coaching Model. Sounds exactly what the Indian team needs, especially after the biggies call it a day after the 2007 World Cup. Let's wait and watch hoping that BCCI take the big step.
