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

Ian Chappell

Many sides to a cricket revolution

May 3, 2015: While an administrative shake-up of the ICC would be welcome, the Essel Group's past cricketing ventures hardly inspire confidence

Ian Chappell

Three questions for cricket

Apr 19, 2015: Do fast bowlers need verbal fisticuffs to generate aggression? Does sending a nightwatchman in always make sense? Is surpassing 100mph even possible?

Ian Chappell

Gimmicks don't win you ODIs, wickets do

Apr 5, 2015: As long as ODIs are governed by stifling regulations, only imaginative captaincy can keep the format from being hopelessly dull

Ian Chappell

Rohit, Mohit, and India's resurgence

Mar 22, 2015: India have turned their fortunes in Australia around during the World Cup because their captain has become proactive, encouraging his bowlers to attack

Ian Chappell

India blossom under Dhoni the ODI captain

Mar 8, 2015: In contrast to his Test avatar, in limited-overs cricket, Dhoni's leadership is aggressive, inspirational and pragmatic

Ian Chappell

How about a World Cup summit?

Feb 22, 2015: The major stakeholders of the game coming together at the global event makes this the best time to sit down and discuss the direction cricket should take

Ian Chappell

The bigger they come, the more they hurt

Feb 8, 2015: It's time to restrict the thickness of bats to prevent injuries to bowlers and umpires, and mis-hit boundaries

Ian Chappell

Open with Rohit and Binny, with Kohli at No. 3

Jan 25, 2015: India's batting is going the way of their bowling in Australia, and they need get their order sorted before the World Cup

Do it like Dean and Kuhn

Luke Alfred: In these times of discontent in South Africa, batsmen like Dean Elgar and Heino Kuhn show that quotas don't necessarily have to cause heartburn

The hinterland of 40

Jon Hotten: At Lord's we saw three in-between scores of the sort that are as likely to annoy the selectors as excite them
