Even as Greg Chappell is set to be part of the Pathan brother’s (Irfan and Yusuf) new coaching academy in Baroda and Delhi, the former Team India’s Coach has much to say about the future of cricket in India.

The main takeaway from a recent exclusive interview was that India has every reason to be optimistic, as the Indian cricketing scene is “set up pretty good.” He praised captaincy of MS Dhoni, the emergence of the younger generation, and the increasing standards of fitness and fielding.”

He also said about India’s World Cup run:

”A lot of people were concerned about what might happen in the World Cup, but they really played well and silenced their critics.”

He does say, however, that their main challenge now remains in balancing the focus across all three formats of the game. ”One format must not take over the others.” 

“Obviously, T20 cricket is the apple of everybody’s eye at the moment, but I feel we need to concentrate equally on all the formats/ 

“I really tend to focus on the more positive things that are happening with cricket in India,” he said. “If I can impart some of my experience and knowledge to their academy, I’d be pleased.”
