Greg Chappell, the former India coach, visited the National Cricket Academy in Bangalore on Monday as part of an exposure trip with a team from Australia's Centre of Excellence.

Chappell coaches at the Centre of Excellence and his team is here to play a few matches with a Maharashtra team and possibly one from Karnataka. The Centre of Excellence team spent a few hours at the NCA and will proceed to nearby Mysore later.

Chappell, the former Australia captain, was coach of India from 2005 to 2007 before he chose not to renew his contract following India's disastrous campaign in the 2007 World Cup where the team failed to make the Super Eights stage.
