Guru Greg no longer interested in India?

New Delhi:

Former India coach Greg Chappell on Friday said he wanted to end all ties with India and Indian cricket, according to a report in a section of the media.

Chappell told a cricket website that he was not interested in India or Indian cricket. His outburst came after Indian opener Virender Sehwag's remarks about the former Australian's credibility.

Sehwag in a recent interview had said that Chappell betrayed players' trust as he disclosed dressing room talks to the media and selectors.

"The thing with him was that whatever you shared with him, it was promptly disclosed to media and selectors. He talked and that hurt the trust. I wasn't comfortable with him," Sehwag had said.

Reacting sharply to Sehwag's remarks, Chappell said one could ask Kiran More (chief selector for the most part of his tenure) about it in order to know if there was any truth in the Delhi batsman's accusations.

Chappell, who has been the chief advisor of Rajasthan's Cricket Association since 2007, allegedly said that he no longer wanted to continue with Indian cricket in any way. The RCA had hired his services for its academy in Jaipur as consultant. He had also been entrusted with the task of spotting and grooming Twenty20 talent by IPL's Jaipur franchise, owned by Emerging media.

"I am now not going to be associated with the Rajasthan Cricket Association (RCA) also," he said.

Chappell, who took over from John Wright in 2005 as India coach, resigned in 2007 following the World Cup debacle in West Indies.
