The best indication...

...that Chappell's honeymoon with the BCCI is over is the rethink on the role of Ian Frazier. When GC took over, he managed to get all the experts he wanted, with the BCCI not questioning him on his selections and, in fact, even going beyond to volunteer that it would appoint batting and bowling coaches if Chappell asked for them. But now that his copybook has been blotted, the board will move... and has... to whittle down his support staff.

  • You need to stop posting selected stuff. You obviously read Outlook and ignored this news as it didnt fit your agenda.

    Sports scientist Ian Frazer will continue to assist Indian cricket coach Greg Chappell with the BCCI not considering any move to replace the expert.

    "Frazer will continue to join the team from time to team before the various series. We are not thinking of replacing him," a top board source said here.

    The source said Chappell wanted to work with a team of support staff which the Board had given him.

    "There has been no change in the BCCI's position since then," the source said.

    The board has also decided to appoint a media manager.

    "However, he will not be from the media community," he said.

  • amazing...Yuvraj, Pathan and Gambir had praised Ian Frazer after their gud performances. They had said that Chappell and Frazer have been instrumental in them getting better or something to that effect and now BCCI doesnt want to give him a contract.
