Kohli's and Rohit's divergent paths to batting glory

Feb 7, 2016: One has found great success in limited-overs formats, while the other is a master of all

Ian Chappell

The dangers of overstaying your time as captain

Jan 24, 2016: When a once-strong leader falls short of ideas, it tends to have a negative effect on the team. MS Dhoni is going through such a phase

Ian Chappell

Steven Smith v MS Dhoni

Jan 10, 2016: A young turk on his own turf will battle a canny old warrior

Ian Chappell

What's the next generation of batsmen learning?

Dec 27, 2015: What's the priority of young batsmen today? Power-hitting or solid defence? And are they being over-coached?

Ian Chappell

What's a good pitch?

Dec 13, 2015: One that gives batsmen and bowlers equal opportunity to succeed. Delhi and Adelaide did that

Ian Chappell

Test cricket needs to hurry it up

Nov 29, 2015: Introducing tweaks like four-day games will be pointless unless players and officials show more urgency to keep the game moving

Ian Chappell

Serious flaws in DRS indicate need for overhaul

Nov 15, 2015: Players gamble on reviews as a tactic, which negates the system's essential purpose - of eliminating howlers. And then there's the issue of who controls it

Ian Chappell

Will the New Zealand brand of cricket succeed in Australia?

Nov 1, 2015: Swing will give the visitors' bowlers the edge but bouncy pitches might thwart their aggressive style of batting

Ian Chappell

Bad pitches make bad Tests

Oct 18, 2015: If a surface doesn't encourage a result, it's not worth playing on again

Ian Chappell

Hard to make 'em like Thommo and Typhoon

Oct 4, 2015: Though the game has had many quality fast bowlers, none have been quite as lethal as Jeff Thomson and Frank Tyson

Ian Chappell

Kohli and Smith lead the way as next-gen Test captains

Sep 20, 2015: While the Indian captain has been the more aggressive, both understand their bowlers and are seeking to improve their young teams

Ian Chappell

Why wouldn't you bat at No. 3?

Sep 6, 2015: Batting one-drop lets you establish the pattern of play. Steven Smith should ignore anyone who says he should move down the order now that he's captain

Ian Chappell

Clarke second only to Taylor as captain

Aug 23, 2015: He was proactive and tactically aware, making it clear to both the opposition and his own team that he was seeking victory from ball one

Ian Chappell

Australia's failure has revolved around Clarke's struggle

Aug 9, 2015: He hasn't been watching the ball out of the hand well enough, and moving to No. 5 was a mistake as well

Ian Chappell

Decision on No. 3 emblematic of England's problems

Jul 26, 2015: The mauling at Lord's means once again England are being reactive in terms of who bats at one-drop. It also means they are likely to shed their new-found aggression

Ian Chappell

Get Root higher up at No. 3

Jul 12, 2015: England should look to make the most of his potential because unlike Gary Ballance, he does not get bogged down against pace or spin

Ian Chappell

Pace is gonna get you

Jun 27, 2015: Despite England's recent surge, Australia will likely prevail in the Ashes thanks to their lethal pace attack, which is suited to all types of pitches

Ian Chappell

Australia should blood 'em young

Jun 14, 2015: It's time to start investing in younger batsmen capable of succeeding at Test level instead of turning to ageing players who are bound to have a short shelf life

Ian Chappell

It's the captain who wins games, not the coach

May 31, 2015: Placing too much emphasis on the coach's input is detrimental because it curbs the captain's ability to think for himself and make bold decisions

Ian Chappell

Is Cook next in line to bite the dust?

May 17, 2015: England are now in a situation where a change of captaincy in the middle of the Ashes series seems probable
