Well I'll be damned.
Probably the best thing that could occur to cool things off a little, because IMO it was fairly obvious he was going to go one way or another.

Hope with Chappell resigning the whole Chappell v/s Indian players issue comes to an end.
I think Chappell should have done this as soon as the Indian team arrived back home.
I'd say resign is a bit of a strong word seeing as his contract was about to expire, was he honestly going to get another one after the trials and tribulations of his tenure?
marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!
Anyone want to join the Society?
Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.
Apparently because he announced his decision before the expiry date it was a resignation.
i guess indians really should stop dreaming, they will never become a team like australia until we make the enviroment that is in australia for cricket.
It is good for Indian Cricket. He was a smart guy with lots of ideas but didn't have the skill to implement those ideas not to forget his poor man management skills. Whatever it is, he is a much richer man now, in his two years as Indian coach he earned close to 400,000 USD + perks.
Good Luck Guru Greg.
People like Chappell who are honest and in your face won't work in Indian cricket,which is the biggest problem with Indian cricket.
Indian cricket set-up is just interested is financial gains and same can be said about the players too,so when somebody like Chappell stands up and says this is wrong and needs to change,he is chucked out of the job and is blamed for everything that went wrong with Indian cricket during his tenure as coach.
I don't think being in your face is Chappell's main problem tbh. He just seems to have poor man management skills which would hurt him in most coaching positions. It's not as if he has had great success as a coach anywhere else. Anyway there are clearly problems with Indian cricket that go beyond Chappell but getting rid of him is a good start.
I hope the next person is someone who has actually succeeded as a coach instead of a big name. I would also like to see someone with experience in Indian domestic cricket. What about someone like Inktihab Alam who coaches for Punjab and has also been successful at the international level?
It's about time that he retires.
Rip Fardin Qayyumi, Bob Woolmer and Craig.
so now that he is gone, I bet nothing will be done about the players and all the stuff they have done wrong during his tenure will just get brushed under the carpet, esp. since the names involved seem to be big ones like Sachin, Sourav etc.
I am afraid I foresee another very very disappointing and mediocre few years ahead, with the odd Tendulkar hundred (can see him get rejuvenated and do well again, now that Greg is gone and he still has something to prove) or Dhoni dhamaka will all be what we will get (and it will satisfy our average fan too, BTW).
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

does anyone know what the hell ian chappell is insinuating in the first paragraph of this article:
why would he bring woolmer's murder into the mix and tie it into chappell's resignation? what has one to do with the other?
