Adelaide: India's former coach Greg Chappell has now decided to "sever all ties" Indian cricket after Virender Sehwag's recent outburst against him.
"I am not interested in India. Not interested in Indian cricket", he said over telephone from Australia when approached for his reaction to recent comments made by Virender Sehwag.
India's dashing opener Virender Sehwag had said that Chappel betrayed the turst of the Indian players. Sehwag also alleged that coach had shared players information to the media and selection.
"You can check with Kiran More (what information I was sharing with him)", Chappell added. Kiran More was a chief selector during Chappell's most of the tenure as a coach. Greg Chappell may be annoyed because Sehwag had no business to voice his opinion almost two years after Chappell's term came to an end. It is also logical on Chappell's part to give feedback about players' performance (and attitude) to the chairman of selectors.
Chappell wants to cut off all ties with India. "I am now not going to be associated with the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) also", he signed off. The RCA had hired his services for its academy in Jaipur. He had also been entrusted with the task of spotting and grooming Twenty20 talent by IPL's Jaipur franchaise, owned by Emerging media.
Greg Chappell has been appointed as the new Head Coach of the Cricket Australia Centre of Excellence (COE) in September last year.
