Greg Chappell

Gregory Stephen Chappell MBE (born 7 August 1948 in Unley, South Australia) is a former cricketer who captained Australia between 1975 and 1977 and then joined the breakaway World Series Cricket (WSC) organisation, before returning to the Australian captaincy in 1979, a position he held until his retirement 1984. The second of three brothers to play Test cricket, Chappell was the pre-eminent Australian batsman of his time who allied elegant stroke making to fierce concentration.

I wonder if Steve Smith will reflect that when Greg Chappell asked Trevor to bowl underarm he did so within the existing laws of the game.

To be fair was only playing by the rules.just like greg chappell did.
Greg Chappell undermined an exceptional career with a 'rules based decision'. Dreadful start to yours! Be better, please!

In 70's 80's & 90's, there was a bunch of great fast bowlers, Imran Khan, Richard Hadlee, Malcolm Marshall, Michael Holding, Joel Garner, Wasim Akram, Curtly Ambrose, Waqar Younis, Denis Lillee, Courtney Walsh, Alan Donald, Shaun *** John Snow, Bob Wills... Also not to forget some spinners as Bedi, Qadir, Underwood, Kumble, Murali, Warne, Saqlain etc. This is the reason that players from that era as Sir Vivian Richards, Greg Chappell, Javed Miandad, Sunil Gavaskar, Brain Lara, Sachin Tendulkar, Alan Border, Steve Waugh etc have been rated so highly as they averaged 50+ against those bowlers (who themselves averaged 25 or less in tests) and spinners who dominated very well. Right now having an average of 50+ is not a big deal. Apart from Steyn. There is no bowler who lies in the league of those legends. Mitchel Johnson is improving day by day. But scoring runs against weak bowling sides doesn't make anyone a legend specially when you're playing against the 'legendary bowlers' of Bangladesh, Zimbabwe o ...

It's Friday, which means Barbarians trivia time and with Australia managing to come from certain defeat to get an amazing victory in the ODI, today's questions are on the One day version of the game. The first ODI match was played between Australia and England in 1971, however the game was not part of the original schedule of the tour, why was the game played? A certain Yorkshireman known for having a batting style that doesn't normally fit with ODI cricket, faced the first abll in that game, who bowled the ball to him? Greg Chappell ordering his brother Trevor to bowl underarm against New Zealand in the 1980-81 series is arguably the most controversial incident in ODI cricket, but who was the batsmen who faced the infamous delivery? Chaminda Vaas has the record of the best bowling figures in ODI cricket, 8/14 form 8 overs, against who did he achieve this feat? Name the three batsmen who have scored three consecutive centuries in ODI cricket.

Master Class Knock by Kallis in his Final Test, scoring his 45th Test Ton :) Kallis 100*(273). I bet Greg Chappell will call this as SLOW CENTURY & criticize, I remember a Fighting Ton by Sourav Ganguly 101(262) in 2005, which Chappell said it was a Slow Century & then removed his captaincy after the Series.. Anyhow, I remember, Sanjay Manjrekar's 104 in 422 balls aganist a Debut Test Team .. What will this Knock called then ??

OK Everyone, I'll tell ye all a tale after which I demand you settle down. Tonight I met my childhood hero. No, not Jack Thompson, but the great Greg Chapell. He is the eigth Australian cricket captain (current or former) I have met. The one most elusive would be Kim Hughes, the one most glowing with charisma would be Steve Waugh, the one most distant would be Ricky Ponting, the one most down to earth either Ian Chappell or Mark Taylor. Obviously the most noble Richie Benaud, and Mr "Iron Fist in a Velvet Glove", Michael Clarke. Apart from Thommo, Warny, the Master Blaster, Sir Richard (Hadlee) Sir Ian (Botham) and the assassin Glen McGrath, who I've also met, none of these champions were Australian captains. I really admire how good Greg Chappell was and probably spent 1 million hours growing up watching him and pretending I was him (and David Bowie, of course). OK I had tears in my eyes tonight and was smiling like a dumb kid after this most auspicious meet. Long live Greg! So now, dear friends, you kno ...
Moments after the BJP offered a ticket to former Indian cricket icon Sourav Ganguly for the 2014 LS polls, the Congress has approached Ganguly’s bete noire, former Indian coach Greg Chappell, in order to pitch him against the prince of Kolkata. “Yes, it is true. We have approached Gregji to take on Dada. He was so successful in bringing down Ganguly’s cricket career and we feel that with him on our side, it’ll hardly be months before Ganguly is decimated politically too,” said Congress general secretary Digvijaya Singh. “Besides, it always makes sense to go for someone like Chappell, who has impeccable secular credentials and keep newly formed communal forces like Ganguly at bay. I think I can safely start calling Ganguly as Sanghuly hereafter!” Singh added. Chappell who spoke to The UnReal Times correspondent Varsha Dhoble, appeared quite pleased with the offer and is currently inclined towards accepting it. “Oh, I’m loving it so far, mate! It looks like I might be accepting this full t ...
Some facts about Azharuddin: *He was the first person to play 300 one day matches and make 9000 one day runs. *Made centuries in all of his first 3 tests against England in 1985. A record that has remained unequaled. *His 156 catches in ODIs was a world record, until Mahela Jayawardene of SriLanka broke it. *Is part of an exclusive club of batsman, who made centuries in each of their debut and last test matches. Other batsmen in the club include greats like Greg Chappell and Javed Miandad. *Scored 5 centuries in 7 Tests at an average of 107.50 at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. *Was Wisden cricketer of the year in 1991. *Was the captain of the team, when India whitewashed both England and SriLanka at home in 1993.

Former Australian captain Greg Chappell has defended the youthful nature of the Cricket Australia Chairman's XI side to host England in a two-day game, saying they're not just a bunch of kids. "It's a great opportunity for our guys. A few of them have played in other games in the tour and I don't expect them to be out of their depth," CA's national talent manager Chappell said on Wednesday. "They're all guys who have played, or are very close to, first-class cricket. They'll be able to handle themselves. "I'm a great believer in you play them when they are ready. It wouldn't be beyond him to play first-class cricket. "If NSW were to pick him (16-year-old Jake Doran), he'd be ready to go. "Worst thing you can do for a players is to leave them at a level at which they are already competent for too long. "He reminds me of Mike Hussey
Mohammad Azharuddin Mohammad Azharuddin About this sound pronunciation (help·info) (born 8 February 1963) is an Indian politician and former cricketer. He was an accomplished batsman and captained the Indian cricket team for much of the 1990s, until being banned[2] for his involvement in a match-fixing scandal.[3] The lifetime ban for his alleged match fixing was later found illegal by Andhra Pradesh High Court. A member of the Indian National Congress, Azharuddin won from the Moradabad constituency of Uttar Pradesh to the Lok Sabha, the lower house of the Parliament of India. In his prime, he had a graceful, fluid batting style, comparable to that of his English contemporary, David Gower and Australian batsman Greg Chappell. The wrist flick was his most characteristic shot and he fared best against spinners. The grace and fluidity of his wrist once prompted John Woodcock, a noted cricket writer, to say, "It's no use asking an Englishman to bat like Mohammad Azharuddin. For, it would be like expecting a ...
Fifth Doctor Peter Davison was interviewed for the December 2013 issue of FILMINK on the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Davison credited Doctor Who fans for Doctor Who’s survival and for its TV return in 2005. This led to him recalling his visit to Australia in 1984 shortly after he completed his run as the Fifth Doctor when he met an unexpected fan: “I did a book signing tour of Australia, and [cricketing legend] Greg Chappell asked for my autograph at one of these events . I said , “I should be asking you for your autograph!” Davison also says: “As the writers move on to other things, there’ll be new writers who’ve grown up watching Doctor Who wanting to write for the programme. There are extraordinary number of people in this business – writers, directors, actors – who are either openly huge Doctor Who fans, or secret Doctor Who fans.

CricketTragics: It's Ashes Morn. Here is my team from the time I've been watching. With a heavy heart I have no room for The Huss, Gilly, or Rod Marsh. For those who know my feelings on Ponting (I know, I've kept them quiet) may be surprised to see him in the list. I can't deny the boy's obvious talents. But I just couldn't put him in the starting XI. He was, however, along with Jonty Rhodes, the best fielder I have seen so he's the twelfth man. Perhaps bringing the drinks out will teach him some humility. 1 Matthew Hayden 2 Mark Taylor 3 Greg Chappell 4 Mark Waugh 5 Allan Border 6 Steve Waugh (C) 7 Ian Healy 8 Shane Warne 9 Jeff Thomson 10 Dennis Lillee 11 Glenn McGrath 12 Little Ricky Ponting Team Mum: Martie Narr McConnell Here's to a great Summer.
Cricket in India sees triumph and tragedy in equal measures ... Some Tragedies of Sachin Tendulkar's Cricketing career... The CHAPPELL CONTROVERSY... The baap of all coach vs team controversies in cricket has to be Greg Chappell vs all the senior players you can think of. Chappell took on Sourav Ganguly, Harbhajan Singh, Virender Sehwag and of course, Tendulkar. As the story goes, Chappell wanted him to bat down the order during his time as India coach and at one instance, firmly asked Sehwag and Tendulkar to up their game to which Dravid said, “Nobody has ever spoken to them like that before.” Either way, the issue was not that. The issue was the batting lineup. “Sehwag didn’t seem very keen. So we sat down with Sachin who in any case was the first priority. We put it down to him and he seemed reluctant. He thought top-of-the-order was the best place for him as it has always been. But we were still in the discussion as Rahul and myself were convinced no other batsman in the team would be able to ...
For Sachin Tendulkar, an ideal coach is like a friend to the players and it makes no difference if he is an Indian or a foreigner since it only his performance that matters. A day after his retirement, Tendulkar addressed the press in Mumbai on Sunday. "I don't think it is about whether it is a foreign coach or an Indian coach. It's more about how consistently one can bring about results. A proper coach is one who understands the players and is more like a friend," Tendulkar said in his first interaction with media as a retired cricketer. "We all know how to play the cover drive but when you have a technical problem, one should be able to sit and sort out with the coach. It's what you put between those two ears," Tendulkar replied to a question on whether he preferred foreign or Indian coaches. In 24 years, Tendulkar has played under managership of Bishan Singh Bedi, Abbas Ali Baig, Ajit Wadekar, Sandeep Patil, Anshuman Gaekwad, John Wright, Greg Chappell, Chandu Borde, Lalchand Rajput, Gary Kirsten and D ...
'I've never been in awe of anyone' Not even Viv Richards. Ian Botham on his first ton, first wicket, and more First first-class game for Somerset It was against Lancashire, at Taunton. I can't remember a great deal and it wasn't a great game. It was a three-dayer but I think it rained a bit and we lost some time. I came out but hardly had a ball to face in the first innings. I was never one to remember individual games. I remember mainly milestones, such as when I was 14 and playing for Somerset Under-15s, playing at Lord's for the first time, and playing for England when I was 20. I had a tough decision to make before that, choosing between playing football or cricket when I was 15. First Test wicket My first Test wicket came on my debut, the third Ashes Test against Australia in 1977. We were playing at Trent Bridge, Australia were batting first and I bowled what must have been a 20-minute spell. I sent down a bit of a loosener to Greg Chappell and he managed to drag it on to his stumps. I ended up w ...

Today Graeme Smith scored his 3rd Test 100 as captain vs Pakistan, jointly ''Greg Chappell'' the most by any captain against Pakistan in Tests.
Chappell front-runner for Lanka coach position Colombo, October 21 Sri Lanka Cricket (SLC) may end up appointing former Australian captain Greg Chappell as its new chief coach. The SLC sources said the deadline for the selection had been extended until the end of this month with scales weighing highly in favour of Chappell, who was arguably the world's best batsman in the mid 70s. Chappell, of course, had a troublesome stint with India resulting in his exit after a disastrous 2007 World Cup campaign. His differences with some of the senior Indian players including former skipper Sourav Ganguly were widely reported in the media. Besides Chappell, two more Australians, Shane Duff and little known Michael O'Sullivan are among the short list of candidates. Three Indians, Venkatesh Prasad, Lalchand Rajput and Mohit Soni are also in the fray. Paul Farbrace, who has had a stint with Sri Lanka as the assistant coach and Ian Pont are the Englishmen under consideration. Grant Bradburn, the New Zealand 'A' in charge ...
Former India coach Greg Chappell praised Sachin Tendulkar's attention to detail, and said that the routine that he followed was something that he had never seen before. "He was very fussy about his batting and his bats and he used to spend hours and hours with a scalpel just cleaning and scraping his bat. It was all about the visual to him," Chappell, who coached India from 2005 to 2007, told The Courier-Mail. "When Tendulkar batted in the middle, he didn't want to see a single blemish on his bat. If his bat didn't look exactly right or feel exactly right, then he didn't feel right. His attention to detail was amazing. "Tendulkar's routine leading into a game was very particular ...he liked to do everything in the same way he had done before the previous game. He was very fixated on that. "For instance, he would have the same person throw balls to him in the same certain way, every time. He was very fussy and he didn't like his routine being changed, so whatever he had done before he kept doing. "A lot of ...

Something to think about..!! Courtesy: Forwarded mail Indian Media. By the time u guys read this news, the body of Major Manish Pitambare, who was shot dead at Anantnag, would have been cremated with full military honors. On Tuesday, this news swept across all the news channels 'Sanjay Dutt relieved by court'. 'Sirf Munna not a bhai' '13 saal ka vanvaas khatam' 'although found guilty for possession of armory, Sanjay can breath sigh of relief as all the TADA charges against him are withdrawn' Then many personalities like Salman Khan said 'He is a good person. We knew he will come out clean'. Mr Big B said "Dutt's family and our family have relations for years he's a good kid. He is like elder brother to Abhishek". His sister Priya Dutt said "we can sleep well tonight. It's a great relief" In other news, Parliament was mad at Indian team for performing bad; Greg Chappell said something; Shah Rukh Khan replaces Amitabh in KBC and other such stuff. But most of the emphasis was given on Sanjay Dutt's "phoenix ...
Cricket Australia are today doing a vote as to who is the better player: Steve Waugh vs Allan Border and this led me to thinking about just how good Allan Border was.    Vote: in 1955, Border first came to the Australian team in Christmas 1978, at the age of 23. That year may ring a bell for some people as World Series Cricket began in 1977 until 1979. Border didn't take part in World Series Cricket but most of the other good players in the Australian team did. While the likes of Greg Chappell, Ian Chappell, Dennis Lillee and Rod Marsh were playing World Series Cricket, the official test team had to cope with the likes of Graeme Wood, Kim Hughes and Graeme Yallop. It was virtually a Second XI. While West Indies also had most of their best players in World Series Cricket, the other good side at the time, England, only had a few out. Border's first match was against England, an Ashes contest, in Australia, but with England still fielding virtually a full strength side, against Australia's virtual Second X ...
I have never seen anyone bowl out- swing at genuine pace with better control and a more perfect seam position than Sree demonstrated in that Test and the next one in Durban. That includes the great Dennis Lillee.' Greg Chappell. Whats your views on Sreesanth ? T:putnam:
Greg Chappell, though not for good reasons, deserves a mention when it comes to Irfan Pathan and his decline as he had an important impact upon Pathan’s career but Pathan had a phase before that too.
ESPNcricinfo's Rahul Dravid "Timeless Steel" is a must have for all Rahul Sharad Dravid fans as it not only reveals lesser known facets and traits of Rahul Sharad Dravid the man and the cricketer, but also demystifies the enigma who was always a man of a few words and an ardent practitioner of the dictum that long drawn out silences are far more eloquent than a few words. Essentially a collection or anthology of articles or pieces on Dravid by such notables as Sambit Bal, Sanjay Bangar, Aakash Chopra, Sanjay Manjrekar, John Wright, Greg Chappell, Vijeeta Dravid, Gideon Haigh, Mukul Kesavan, Fazal Khaleel and such other authors of rare eminence; the book is sub divided into five sections each with a collection of articles of it's very own. The sub divisions or separate sections are entitled: The Cricketer, In the Words of his Peers, The Great Innings, The Man and the Interviews and also contains the unabridged version of the epochal speech that Dravid made during the course of the Bradman memorial, one may ...

Let me recall the incidents that we went through in last few years of Cricket: Bharath Roger: (1) BCCI leaves Sachin despite being caught red handed for Ball tampering in South Africa in the year 2001. (2) BCCI didn't even bother to hear the words of Ganguly(after the spat with Greg Chappell) and straight away discarded him as captain. (3) BCCI and Dhoni didn't react after Rohit Sharma and Suresh Raina was found in the Lankan beach at previous night, just before the Finals of the Asia cup held in 2008(India lost badly without the fight)! (4) Harbhajan BREACHED the ICC'c CODE OF CONDUCT in the Sydney test through abusing Andrew Symonds with racial remarks. But BCCI supported him and ordered the Team India to stay in Sydney Hotel... BCCI begged ICC to pardon Bhajji as they(BCCI) know that could tarnish the image of Sachin(who lied to save Bhajji) and The Indian Cricket Team.. Mentioned just few.. Do you remember the term(filthy) that you used to describe in your post about the Cricket Australia Culture? Sti ...

Former Aussie players furious with team Ian Healy has asked Cricket Australia to stop"treating" the country's Test team like a"club" side and advised the selectors to show faith in the embattled players who are bearing the brunt after suffering two heavy defeats in India. "These players are the best we have and they need to know the selectors love them. It's time Cricket Australia stopped treating the Australian Test team like a club side," Healy said. The former wicketkeeper-batsman said the selectors had been making the same mistakes as the dark days of the mid-1980s, before Lawrie Sawle, Greg Chappell and Bob Simpson adopted a new policy. "They started to select players based on character; men such as Geoff Marsh, Dean Jones and Steve Waugh. And once those players felt comfortable, they found some form at that level. "Now is the time for the same consistency ofselection. We can't afford the conjecture about who should be batting where," Healy was quoted as saying by the 'Courier Mail'. Healy was of the ...

India v Australia, 1st Test, Chennai, 2nd day Clarke ton drives Australia to 380 Australia 380 (Clarke 130, Henriques 68, Warner 50, Ashwin 7-103) v India 63/2 Australia's tail succeeded in frustrating India's bowlers while advancing the visitors' first innings to 380 at lunch on day two of the first Test in Chennai. Michael Clarke went on from his overnight 103 not out to 130, going past Greg Chappell on Australia's list of run aggregates along the way, and Peter Siddle dead-batted to a stodgy but valuable 19 from 94 balls. James Pattinson and Nathan Lyon then managed to extend the session, each ball a little victory for the pair. Lyon ultimately succumbed when his sweep was well held at leg slip. R Ashwin again bowled teasingly for India, and Lyon's wicket gave him a new innings high-mark in first-class cricket. Ravindra Jadeja and Harbhajan Singh struck earlier in the morning, the latter improving somewhat on his diffident performance on the first day of the series. Redolent of a desert, the pitch requ ...
India v Australia, 1st Test, Chennai, 1st day Could have been more ruthless - Henriques As he walked out to bat in his first Test innings, Moises Henriques felt like his legs were made of jelly. The first-afternoon pitch looked like something that had been played on for a full five days already. R Ashwin was spinning the Australians into a trance. Wickets were falling much too quickly for their liking. Plenty of fans and pundits back home had questioned the selection of Henriques, not that he was thinking about that as he walked out. Still, by the end of his innings of 68, he had silenced a few critics. In the post-war era, only three other Australians had scored as many as Henriques on debut from No.7 or lower. Two of those men, Greg Chappell and Adam Gilchrist, went on to become legendary figures in Australian cricket. The other, Greg Matthews, had a more than handy career over the course of a decade. Of course it is much too early to judge what sort of Test player Henriques will become, but he has made ...

Damon appeared in the film, Balibo, for which he was nominated for Best Supporting Actor at the AFI Awards, and in the features Thunderstruck and Spirited. ...
A short note about our lovable DADA: Ganguly holds a special place in Indian crickethistory. For a specific time period in his playing days he was at once the most hated and most loved player in the team. His captaincy tenure has got to be one of the most chronicled ones in recent times. More than his proficiency on the off side, his prolific partnership with Sachin in ODIs, his run in with Greg Chappell etc it is his role as acaptain in shaping up a young team for which he is most remembered. He took over at a tumultuous time in the wake of the match fixing saga and, along with the likes ofRahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble, forged a team that was formidable athome and more than competitive overseas. His relationship with John Wright, India's firstforeign coach proved to be the catalyst for India's admirable show in away tours. Ganguly emphasised on the need to be fearless and he led by example in this aspect. His ability to get under the skins of the opposition was built up over time and his ...
This has been widely reported, and not a single one of them has linked directly to Shane Warne's manifesto! *** No wonder they have all got it wrong:   like Cricinfo, have gone so far as to falsely claim that he is recommending Greg Chappell - when in actual fact it is Ian Chappell. Most are stating that he is demanding different people, when in reality he is just suggesting his "dream team" and saying that they are examples of the kinds of people he wants.   I am so irritated by the inaccuracy of the various news reports on it that I strongly suggest that people read Shane Warne's manifesto itself before commenting.   Interestingly, on the same day that Warne released his manifesto, Cricket Australia announced their test squad to India:   David Warner, Ed Cowan, Phillip Hughes, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (capt), Usman Khawaja, Steven Smith, Matthew Wade (wk), Glenn Maxwell, Moises Henriques, Mitchell Johnson, James Pattinson, Mitchell Starc, Peter Siddle, Jackson Bird, Xavier Doherty, Nathan Ly ...

Who after Fletcher? In the past Indian coaches have been appointed based on what they achieved in their playing careers; the current team cannot have one of those Nearly two years ago, when Duncan Fletcher replaced Gary Kirsten as the coach of the Indian team, he must have thought that a success similar to Kirsten's would improve his coaching CV exponentially. After all, there is no bigger test as a coach than taking charge of one of the world's most influential set of cricketers. But at the back of his mind would have been the case of Greg Chappell, who was booted out by a vociferous Indian public and an unhappy bunch of senior cricketers. No points for guessing where Fletcher stands today. The last 18 months have been horrendous for him and India. Wasn't it supposed to be one of the easier assignments? India were No. 1 in Tests and World Cup winners. All Fletcher had to do was consolidate. But that's where most of us, and Fletcher, got it wrong, for coaching and mentoring aren't so much about preservati ...
