    Greg Chappell: I won't resign.

    I mean this man is stupid or what, he has claimed that he won't resign from the post of the Indian coach and he has sent an sms to a top journalist in India blaming the selection process and how he was not happy with the WC squad. He claims he wanted more youth in the side and he request was overlooked.

    So Chappell clearly is not ready to become a scapegoat, and some quality drama is in the making i guess.

    Well I don;t think that Chappell should take all the burdan of loss . Physical and mental fitness is the problem with India tbh otherwise they have enough talent in their batting line up .
    Greg has been pointing out these fitness problems and IMHO either a coach be given full authority or there shouldn't be any coach there in the first place .

    2 problems:
    1) The way Sachin is idolozed and treated even though he has been a big zero the last few years and always suspect under pressure.

    2) BCCI - excellent article below:

    Misfits like Pawar are ruining Indian cricket
    Wednesday, 28 March 2007 |


    By Ashis Ray

    Sharad Pawar's statement about creating two Indian teams (when the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are struggling to stitch together even one respectable side!) is more pathetic than the performance of the Indians in the World Cup. This is the fundamental problem, more serious than the on-field failings of the cricketers and indirectly the cause of the latter. Misfits like Pawar have been governing Indian cricket for decades. They don't have a clue; and are, moreover, distressing communicators.

    Pawar has summoned a meeting of former India captains on April 6 to discuss India's disastrous showing. This is not by itself a bad idea. But how many of the erstwhile skippers will have the courage to speak their minds and tell the board on their faces that they are a part of the problem, and a major one, not the solution. They need to be conveyed in no uncertain terms that a handover to professional management intertwined by expertise from honest, lucid and knowledgeable cricketers is imperative; and that this has to happen within a time bound period.

    The problem is a stinking rich BCCI are in a position to extend handsome favours. By a vicious process of manoeuvring - which most cricketers are bewildered by - non-cricketers, unqualified for management are the ones in power. Past players of stature eat out of their hands, even crawl before them for they can derive attractive benefits from doing so. People with personality and self-respect, who don't play ball, don't grovel are ignored, some times at the cost of Indian cricket.

    It is no great shakes to be invited by such worthless elements for a conference. It is, however, a matter of national importance for eminent, potentially insightful men who have been India's helmsmen to extricate their country from the cricketing mess it finds itself in. But they will be failing in their duties if they restricted themselves to policy and tactics connected with the national team and avoided addressing the thorny issue of the game's governance.

    There is, palpably, a great temptation to sack Greg Chappell and Rahul Dravid. Admittedly, they bear responsibility, although the players collectively let them down. Before the World Cup, Sachin Tendulkar had already been positioned to succeed Dravid in the event of India's failure in the World Cup. This has happened more cataclysmically than envisaged. Perhaps, an older and wiser Tendulkar will be more successful than in his earlier term. But it's still a shot in the dark. The more difficult decision is a choice of coach, for no one can help cricketers who habitually freeze on the big stage.

    In 2005, the BCCI under Jagmohan Dalmiya, hastily embarked on hosting one-day international series to improve India's rankings and thereby avert having to qualify for last year's Champions Trophy, which they were hosting. The plan succeeded, but the home successes failed to further India's cause in the tournament itself, just as much as the victories over the West Indies and Sri Lanka in January and February last respectively, were a false and misleading indication of India's capabilities in the World Cup.

    The ICC's ranking system is flawed and needs a revamp. Like tennis, where greater value is given to the performances in bigger events like Grand Slam and Master Series, Cricket World Cup and Champions Trophy tournaments should carry more weight than the proliferating and money-minting ODIs. The recognition to wins and losses, runs and wickets should also be on the basis of an equal number of matches played home and away. This should not be also disproportionate against lower ranked teams, making easier the manipulation of rankings by financial inducements provided by wealthy boards. This is precisely what the BCCI of Dalmiya and Pawar have been doing and taking the Indian public for a ride.

    I don't see the big deal in this. Chappell didn't get the likes of Raina in the final squad so the second comment makes sense; he shouldn't blame the WC result on that but then again, it's probably the media twisting his words. As for resignation, why the hell should he resign if he wants to be the coach? I sure as hell wouldn't resign if I were him. In fact, I'm glad to see that we have someone who actually wants to continue in this role despite negative results and having to deal with the media and fans in India.

    Because blaming Chappell if he want' allowed to execute his plan is not appropriate and he should NOT resign and should fight it out. Anyways, ROOT CAUSE of all problems is BCCI and stupid star-status to non-performers like Sachin.

    If you still don't get it - and I doubt you do - then there is as much hope for you as there is for Indian Cricket

    Weren't you the one predicting hwo great Tendulkar would perform in the WC

    wasn't they saying they were going to extend his contract or something before the wc started? one event should change if that was the case...it should be like wisden's author is saying...fletcher should go, irrespective of how england do in the wc...so if india was going to extend his contract then it should extend it irrespective of the early exit...cause sometimes in sports and life **** happens

    Now why does Chappell want to ridicule himself by saying that he won't retire, anyhow he is gonna be axed as the hatred levels for Chappell among the Indian fans is at an all time high.

    So i would be suprised if he succesfully saves his job, one more thing if he was so unhappy with the team and the way the things were being operated in the Indian camp he should have raised his voice earlier, why is he doing it after India's early WC exit.

    I cannot understand why chappel wants to persist with Raina even after so many failures.
    He has shown a very adamant attitude which i dont think is correct. Also regarding his resignation from the post of Coach. He should take a moral responsibility for this debacle and resign but i think he would be tempted to continue only because if he resigns now then his coaching career is as good as over atleast for some time.

    Why should he resign? He feels his job isn't done, and if they want to get rid of him let them fire him.

    One important point to remember is that the SMS was sent on Feb 17th. It is not like he did it now to pass the buck. He obviously didn't get all the players he wanted and he mentioned that to a journalist whom he probably trusted. Dont see the big deal in this. And I don't think Chappell himself is stupid enough to assume that he will get the team he wants everytime.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    Chappell wants young players because they are willing to listen to him, as the senior players are spoilt brats and they just don't give a damn about what Chappell tells them do to, as they know Chappell or for that matter any other coach can't push them out of the team.


    The Indian manager has already reported to the BCCI that Indian team were an indisciplined bunch at the WC, they were out drinking and partying till 2 am night before games.
