Greg Chappell resigns as India coach

Close on the heels of ace-batsman Tendulkar's scathing comments, Greg Chappell has today, tendered his resignation as the coach of the Indian cricket team.
Though the Aussie started off well and the Indian team under Chappell and Dravid set up a record for the maximum consecutive one-day wins chasing not too long back in history, the decline since then has been steep. India's performance on the South Africa tour was pathetic and the entire team, coach and administration have been under attack from fans and media alike for thier pre-mature exit from the World Cup.
Chappell's exit was widely expected and will not surprise too many followers of the game. However, cricket experts were divided on the issue of whether Chappell should remain or go. Well, those debates have been put to rest by the man himself, who cited personal reasons as the cause for not extending his tenure as the India coach.
Here's wishing him all the best in his future endeavours.
