New Delhi: Under-fire Greg Chappell has resigned as India’s cricket coach following the team’s first round exit from the World Cup, sources told AFP on 4 April.
Chappell, 58, sent an e-mail to Indian cricket board president Sharad Pawar, saying he did not wish to renew his contract as coach for “family and personal reasons”, the sources said.
The former Australian captain has served as coach since June 2005 and his two-year contract was due to end on May 31.
