In an interview with the Indian Express, former India coach Greg Chappell looks back on his time in India

In an extensive interview with the Indian Express, Greg Chappell, who coached India between 2005 and 2007, looks back at his tenure, and shares his opinion on the talent he saw, including the likes of Suresh Raina and Sreesanth. He is also effusive in his praise of India captain, MS Dhoni.

This game is about dealing with failure. Bradman batted 80 times in Test cricket and he only got 29 hundreds. So he failed 51 times. The rest of us have had a huge struggle. It's only those who accept that they are going to fail a lot and have a belief that their method will work will be able to keep at it. Dhoni's method was and is unique. Not many people play like him, but he has immense confidence in it. And that's all that really matters.
