Dissection of an email - Greg Chappell is no John Wright

The full text of the email is available on DNA
This team has been made to be fearful and distrusting by the rumour mongering and deceit that is Sourav’s modus operandi of divide and rule. Certain players have been treated with favour, all of them bowlers, while others have been shunted up and down the order or left out of the team to suit Sourav’s whims.

John Wright obviously allowed this to go on to the detriment of the team. I am not prepared to sit back and allow this to continue or we will get the same results we have been seeing for some time now.

It is time that all players were treated with fairness and equity and that good behaviours and attitudes are rewarded at the selection table rather than punished.

Greg Chappell makes one thing very clear in this email - that he is not John Wright. Wright gave up on the team towards the end of his tenure. He was instrumental in making the unit a good team but he just was not able to take it to the next level. The next level (call it the level of excellence) needs some real commitment and some real hardwork - tough fitness levels and an attitude to put the team before self.. Chappell has the vision and knows what it takes to take the team there. Saurav had his chances and gives you no impression that he has it in him to take those extra yards. If it really comes down to making a choice between Greg and Saurav, the choice to take should be pretty straight-forward.
