Chappell ignites Shoaib action debate

by — Kashif Aziz

With India loosing the test series 1-0, it was expected that they are going to retaliate on non-issues. Surprisingly, the assault came from their coach, Greg Chappel, and the target is none other than Shoaib Akhtar.

“There is something seriously different about it [Shoaib’s action],” Reuters has quoted Chappell as saying to India’s 24-hour television channel Times Now. His comments came after Sachin Tendulkar and Anil Kumble were hit on the helmet by rising Shoaib deliveries in the ongoing third and final Test at Karachi. Chappell added that India could do without its players being hit like that.
