I didn’t take much notice of Sachin’s criticism: Greg Chappell

MUMBAI: Former India coach Greg Chappell seems to have found his calling at shaping new talent. The batting legend, now Australia’s national talent manager and chairman of the youth selection panel, has been roped in by the Pathan brothers – Irfan and Yusuf – for their soon-to-be-launched coaching academy in Baroda and Delhi. Chappell told TOI from Brisbane in an exclusive interview that he was excited about being the curator of the CAPs (Cricket Academy of the Pathans) development programme. Excerpts…

Sachin Tendulkar criticized you in his autobiography last year, and a few Indian players who played under you too followed suit. It must have hurt you…That’s fine, I don’t take much notice of it. I really tend to focus on the more positive things that are happening with cricket in India, and the fact that Irfan and Yusuf are setting up an academy to develop players. I’d rather look forward than backward. If I can impart some of my experience and knowledge to their academy, I’d be pleased. We understand how to develop young cricketers.
