Batsmen should begin spin training at an early age

Ian Chappell

That eccentric summer of '75

Aug 7, 2016: Looking back to the first streaker at Lord's, and perhaps the first high-profile incident of pitch vandalism

Ian Chappell

Why close-catching standards have dropped

Jul 24, 2016: Technique and anticipation are important for close-in fielding. Many of today's fielders lack both

Ian Chappell

Why not reduce bat sizes across all formats?

Jul 10, 2016: Asking for restrictions on bat dimensions in Tests is a start, but there needs to be more support for extending the change to limited-overs cricket as well

Ian Chappell

Why Kumble could work out better for India than Greg Chappell did

Jun 26, 2016: He understands the Indian mentality better and doesn't have to deal with star players on the wane

Ian Chappell

Day-night Test cricket makes sense

Cricket writers who inspired me

May 29, 2016: The likes of Wooldridge, Benaud, Cozier and Gray were fine company and great to read and listen to

Ian Chappell

Why captains should be mentored early

Ian Chappell

Give first-class cricket its due

May 1, 2016: For struggling Test teams to get better, they need to strengthen their domestic cricket and ensure their best players aren't lost to T20

Ian Chappell

What T20 cricket can learn from baseball

Apr 17, 2016: Bringing back fences could help even up the contest between bat and ball, and ensure that all sixes are genuine

Ian Chappell

Deviation a bowler's best weapon

Apr 3, 2016: With so little margin for error, especially in T20 cricket, any movement - on the air, off the pitch - is vital in giving the bowler a chance

Ian Chappell

Sharper India back on track

Mar 20, 2016: Their crushing defeat to New Zealand was a jolt they needed to refocus, and against Pakistan they played like tournament favourites

Ian Chappell

Six-hitting ability important to World T20 success

Mar 6, 2016: The flat pitches in India will favour those who consistently clear the ropes. The hosts are favourites, but Australia, England and South Africa can challenge them

Ian Chappell

Bring back the back-foot no-ball law

Feb 21, 2016: Given how front-foot line calls are tougher than they look, this change would allow the umpire more time to focus on decisions after the ball is delivered

Ian Chappell

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

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
