The step-down controversy - Truce and a game of Pool
"It was a frank discussion about Indian cricket's present and future, and much of what I said was aimed at motivating Sourav for the Bulawayo Test match. In that regard our exchange was beneficial. Sourav and I share a mutual respect going back a long time. Thankfully, it is strong enough to survive what has occurred in the past week. I have great respect for what Sourav has achieved in his playing and captaincy career and look forward to working with him in the future"
Chappell said this in a press conference, meant to put an end to this controversy. At the end of it, Greg and Saurav posed for the photographers by playing a game of pool. The report doesn't say who won. But dont you think "fencing" would have been a good game, instead.
