Chappell the turn coat

Aha! The truth is out. It is clear why Chappell took up the job as coach of Cricket Australia's Centre of Excellence.
The Australian reports that "GREG Chappell will help plan Australia's defence of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy in next month's four-Test tour of India after being appointed coach of Cricket Australia's Centre of Excellence in Brisbane yesterday".
So during his stint as India's coach and his subsequent assignments in Jaipur, he was taking notes and smuggling it back to his country. It is sad that such a fine upstanding cricketer has been reduced to selling his soul for mere money. If he had some drinking or gambling debts all he had to do was to tell Lalit Modi - he would have certainly made arrangements. Instead, he has let himself down so badly.

What ever be his reasons Indians take heart, it just goes to show that the Aussies are frightened of the Indian team and will use low-down tricks such as double-agents to overcome us.

Maybe he is just acting as a dialect coach so there are not any misunderstandings like Maa Ki Gate on this tour.

If he was actually being loyal to Australia by garnering Indian cricket secrets, doesn't that make him an undercover agent, rather than a turncoat?

Park,

Lets not quibble on whether he was a turn coat or an undercover agent.:)

Dont worry ,his output may not be of any use to them as it was to us during his stint Now it is for the BCCI to ponder over appointing foreign coaches.
