Chappell's 'processes' contradicted Indian approach

Jamie Alter

A lot of people are taking potshots at the Indian team following their World Cup debacle. Greg Chappell's future is the debate of endless newspapers, television channels and tabloids. Rahul Dravid's credibility as captain has been questioned. Irate fans have stoned houses and burnt effigies. Javagal Srinath, writing in the Hindustan Times, just questions what is best for Chappell.

Should he, given an opportunity, continue and try to implement his 'processes', or should he leave in a dignified manner? If he quits, the next question would be, who should replace Greg? India's premature exit has opened up a Pandora's Box.
