Ponting's time is up

Mar 27, 2011: If he quits the captaincy now, he'll be remembered as a beaten and bloodied warrior who refused to bow down. Also, it's just the right time for Clarke to fill his shoes

Ian Chappell

Australia need a workout

Mar 13, 2011: It's been all too smooth sailing for Ponting's men so far. They need a tough match against Pakistan

Ian Chappell

Look, now you've angered Ricky

Feb 27, 2011: The coverage of Ponting's dressing-room blow-up was excessive. And it just may end up being bad news for the other teams

Ian Chappell

The five favourites for the World Cup

Feb 13, 2011: England, India, Sri Lanka, South Africa and Australia are looking good

Ian Chappell

The misery that is Michael Clarke

Jan 30, 2011: Clarke needs a long innings in the first-class format but captaincy worries and the World Cup prevent him from concentrating on his batting

Ian Chappell

Why Aussie fans are cheering for England

Jan 16, 2011: Because the olde enemy could help their side make it to the World Test Championship

Ian Chappell

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
