On the eve of first Test Match between India and Australia, starting on Boxing Day i.e. 26th December, in Melbourne, there are lot of reports in the media about ex-coach of Indian Team – Greg Chappel. He has been hired to give lecture to Australian cricket team about how to demystify the batting maestro – Sachin Tendulkar. According to him, if Australian can restrict Sachin then half of their battle is won.
Probably, the most eccentric and unethical cricket coach India had appointed so far- Greg Chappel – had turbulent time with the Indian team. Since we are naive and not cunning, BCCI offered him stint of coaching assignment with warm welcome. But he was on a mission to create confusion among players and disintegrate the Indian Team and he succeeded to some extent also. He was instrumental in preponing the retirement of Saurav Ganguly and also destroyed Ifran Pathan. He wanted to decimate the Indian team so that it could not give tough competition to other teams especially Australia. No body could understand his nefarious plan.
But such type of people cannot be successful in their acts for long time. Despite his loadful of cricketing experience, he has not been of much help to Aussies team and will never be.
Our ex-captain, Saurav Ganguly, tried to challenge his way of working and what happened to Ganguly, does not need repetition. But Greg has forgotten one thing that now the situation has changed dramatically. In order to win the battle, he will have to demystify 10 other cricketers besides Sachin because they are as important as Sachin. So, dear Greg, start preparing lectures not for one individual but for 10 other individuals also, who are integral part of the team and has the capacity to fight till their last breath.
Our cricket team has the best chance to beat Kangraoos in their courtyard as they are not in best of form. Cheers to our team members to enjoy their stay in Australia and bring much sough after series win trophy. Good Luck once again and Merry Christmas! Party and play like true professional on Boxing Day and give big punch on first day to the Kangaroos!
