Chappell on Ganguly

No matter what the truth is, I think Chappell must refrain from making statements about the Ganguly issue to the press. The controversy has just shown signs of settling down with Ganguly dropped from both Test and ODIs. His recent comments have unneccsarily re-ignited the issue. I think the BCCI was right to reprimand him for it. Chappell loves to speak his mind, but it doesn’t always help the team to be constantly mired in controversy. Part of being coach is also about being tactful off the field especially in a setting like India were politics is so rampant and fans following is so extreme. He’ll be doing the team a service but shutting his mouth and avoiding further discussion on the issue.
