Cricket Down Under programme launched

By Our Special Correspondent

MUMBAI, APRIL 4. Australian legend Greg Chappell and his ally Ian Frazer, a former first class cricketer and sports scientist, have helped children above 12 to learn cricket in what is now famously knows as `The Chappell Way.'

Being launched in India now under the initiative of the Melbourne-based Odesa Global and India's Percept D'Mark, a 14-day camp in Brisbane will cost aus $4,500 per student. About the Cricket Down Under programme, Greg said: "It's not a school. It's a self-awareness journey conducted in a nurturing environment where participants will learn the secrets to help them master their game while hopefully starting them on the path to a professional career.

"We did find faults in cricket and decided to bring together our knowledge. Frazer has studied a wide range of sports. The basic thing about cricket is finding solutions to problems. The bowlers create problems and the batsmen have to find a wide range of solutions. I learned all my lessons in life by playing cricket, not by education.''

Different strokes

Greg said that `The Chappell Way' focuses on developing maximum individual talent and potential. "I could not have batted the way Adam Gilchrist does. He's much stronger than me. But no one way is the right way to bat or bowl. Gilly is a top hand player and look at Sachin (Tendulkar), a bottom hand player,'' he said pointing to pictures.
