Mumbai: India's national selectors have blamed ex-coach Greg Chappell for the disastrous World Cup campaign in the Caribbean, where the former champions were knocked out in the preliminary round.
"Greg could not understand Indian cricketers' psyche. He was more like a schoolmaster than a friend," selector Ranjib Biswal told news channel Headlines Today on Tuesday, in a programme where four of the five selectors discussed the team's problems.
"Greg wanted to show everybody he is the boss. He was not happy with anybody," another selector Bhupinder Singh added.
"There were instances when Chappell was not talking to senior players for four or five days. He was not on talking terms with Sachin Tendulkar, Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh. It happened in South Africa (previous tour)."
