Ponting's captaincy is over, Australia's turmoil isn't

Jan 2, 2011: Ricky Ponting was often a good captain, sometimes one who tried too hard. He can still play on as a batsman, though

Ian Chappell

Ponting's captaincy is hurting Australia

Dec 19, 2010: He's trying too hard to prove he's worthy. When he quits, Haddin might be Australia's best option as a stop-gap leader

Ian Chappell

North's form has gone south

Dec 5, 2010: As has Clarke's. But there's still hope for Australia, thanks to Haddin, Hussey and Watson. If only their bowling attack had a leader

Ian Chappell

A predictor's nightmare

Nov 21, 2010: England's iffy batting, Johnson's dodgy bowling, the damp start to the season, and Australia's injury concerns all make the expert's job harder ahead of the Ashes

Ian Chappell

The Pujara and Johnson conundrums

Nov 7, 2010: India have a dilemma about their No. 3 spot and Australia on how best to use their strike bowler

Ian Chappell

When in India, don't just rely on spin

Oct 24, 2010: If you're a visiting captain, pick a variety of quality bowlers - fast and slow. And if you're a batsman up against slow bowlers, watch the ball closely and use your feet

Ian Chappell

The magic of VVS

Oct 10, 2010: Laxman has hand-eye coordination that is the envy of surgeons, a competitive drive that his opposition dreads, and the kind of nous good captains need

Ian Chappell

Uncertainty keeps the rivalry thriving

Sep 26, 2010: Sehwag holds the key to India's chances against Australia. Much will also depend on Zaheer and Johnson

Ian Chappell

Save the game or lose it

Sep 12, 2010: If the powers that be don't take steps to eradicate fixing, we won't have a game to protect

Ian Chappell

Captaincy must-haves: imagination and premonition

Aug 29, 2010: Australia's series against India and England could reveal which of Strauss, Dhoni and Ponting is best

Ian Chappell

The three S's of Sehwag

Aug 15, 2010: The Indian opener is up there with Bradman in his ability to score quickly for prolonged periods of time

Ian Chappell

Many challengers, no leader

Aug 1, 2010: Having a situation where the top teams are evenly matched is mouth-watering but not if it's only because each of them is inconsistent

Ian Chappell

UDRS: Use it or lose it

Jul 18, 2010: The ICC needs to find a way to use reviews in all matches, and if that's not possible, the system needs to be junked

Ian Chappell

Ponting's Ashes kryptonite

Jul 4, 2010: It might seem a wild suggestion, but just like Jardine used Larwood against Bradman, Strauss could consider bringing back Flintoff for a couple of Ashes Tests

Ian Chappell

Don't change the rules, play better

Jun 20, 2010: A two-innings format is not going to make one-day cricket more attractive. What it needs is more imaginative captaincy and less gimmicks

Ian Chappell

Why make players choose between formats?

Jun 6, 2010: What are the motivations behind two contrasting proposals by Cricket Australia and the BCCI?

Ian Chappell

Keep it short for the Yanks

May 23, 2010: If the game is ever to take off in America, Twenty20 is most likely the way to go

Ian Chappell

What makes an ideal Twenty20 team?

May 9, 2010: You will need: an opener with timing; wicket-taking quicks; attacking, economical spinners; and a prodigious late-order hitter

Ian Chappell

Beware the backlash

Apr 25, 2010: The IPL is a possible guide's to cricket's future but greed will ruin it and result in the public losing faith in it. The BCCI must ensure its future is fiscally responsible

Ian Chappell

The IPL: where young players get noticed

Apr 11, 2010: Playing with international stars, and triumphing against them, will help cricketers like Rohit Sharma and David Warner make strong cases for being given runs in their national sides
