Past 24 hours every senior of the team bashed Former India coach Greg Chappell after Sachin Tendulkar made claims in his book, it was chance of Former India batsman VVS Laxman to hit out at Chappell who said that the former coach had taken Indian cricket backwards in his two-year tenure.

Chappell took Indian cricket backwards,” Laxman told NDTV in an exclusive interview on Tuesday.

Laxman, reacted to a series of allegations Sachin Tendulkar made in his autobiography ‘Playing it my Way’, confirming a lot of things what the Master Blaster had to say.

Sachin Tendulkar mentioned that Chappell threatened Laxman’s career after he refused to open in a Test match in India.

This happened in 2006 at the Wankhede Stadium when India played vs England. Yuvraj Singh was picked ahead of me. We were going to the West Indies for a four-Test series after that and he asked me if I would open.” said Laxman.

I mentioned in 2000 I had decided I would not open anymore after it didn’t work for me in the first four years. I was consistent in the middle order. Chappell asked me my age and said – Don’t you think 31 is too young an age to sit at home? I had a very good run under him. I was the second highest run scorer under him,” Laxman added.
