    Greg v Gang?

    That is not five, GregThe Deep Throat who asked Ganguly to step down, seems to be one Mr. Gregory Stephen Chappell, the coach of the Indian team. Cricinfo has put some pieces of the jigsaw together and has an interesting story. It is also backed up with some solid statistics.

    Is the sun really setting on Sauravda ? Would it be better if he left the stage with the little grace left after this episode ? The coach and the captain being at loggerheads is never good to any team. In particular, an Indian team can never cope with it as the media is always around them making mountains out of mole-hills.

    By the way, would John Wright have said the same thing to Ganguly if he had continued? Or, did he opt out due to a cold war with the captain?

    With these controversies, rumours abounded that Chappell would resign as coach. But, thankfully, Greg put a firm fullstop to all those in a statement from Harare.

    why are the coach and captain at loggerheads when the coach has done his job and expressed a fair opinion. ganguly is not as good now and he should step down. In a normal world Ganguly would accept his crapness and step down. What is the point of this controversy.

    Given that Chappell had no vote in the selection meeting which picked the players for the current tour, how is he justified in asking one of those to quit?

    It is essentially a clash of cricket cultures. On one hand we have a pure professional like Chappell and on the other, there is a star who has seen much better times.

    By the way, I do have a blog called
