Is this the end of Chappell's way?

My friend Anand Vasu has written a nice piece in Cricinfo - Sad end to a rocky marriage

Greg Chappell wasn't associated with a single player as it happens in Tennis. Greg was *hired* to help the Indian cricket team to adapt to new ideas to succeed at the in international cricket.

Indian cricketers failed at the World Cup. The players didn't perform when it mattered the most. It will be sad if Chappell, in his report, skips pointing out the "attitude crisis in the Indian team."

Seeing is believing, even if Tendulkar tells us that we don't know what they are going through... We saw it on TV how abject the Indian performance was. They looked like some casual tourists in the Caribbean.

One prince was keen on proving to the world that he still has "runs in him." The King couldn't be bothered to make an effort, cause he couldn't play in his favourite opening slot. The young 'king in the waiting' threw his wicket away against Bangladesh and ran himself out against Sri Lanka. The coach cannot be blamed for all this.

When was the last time we saw an Australian team playing without the intensity?

If Zee's new cricket league happens, maybe Greg Chappell will be back coaching Mumbai United or Chennai Champs!
