If Viv had retired after the same amount of games as Chappell his average would have been about the same, while Viv reached higher heights not only than Chappell but arguably any other batsman than Bradman and Sobers.
I myself though rate Chappell really highly especially when adding his superb slip fielding to his batting. He wasn't Viv though.
