Q.

Is it right by Greg Chappell to blame Indian culture for the team's debacle ?

"The culture is very different, it's not a team culture. They lack leaders in the team because they are not trained to be leaders. From an early age, their parents make all the decisions, their school teachers make their decisions, their cricket coaches make the decisions.

When something is said......look at what is said....rather than who said it, or if pride of the nation is hurt !
What Greg chapppell has said is 100% TRUE.
Indian kids are over protected. Parents, elders and society takes decisions on their behalf. The kids dont get a chance to venture life on their own, take decisions and face consequences good and bad. Often bad decisions help in our growth, but lack of opportunity to take decisions is ALWAYS detrimental to growth! Freedom has to practiced in order to take responsibilities! This draw back in our culture not only affects sports, but all fields of life.

I am a big Greg hater. But, that is not reason enough to rubbish everything that he utters. The civilized culture of India never encourage anyone to do play-acting, gamesmanship or be hateful towards others. The Australian cricketers, administrators and scribes encourage this to ensure more victories for them. But they do not respect this qualities in other countries' players. That's why they viewed Sourav Ganguly as the biggest threat to them . The so called gentle man Steve Waugh was taught the right Australian lesson by an Indian Sourav. I think Greg was right.

His was a healthy criticism of Indian Cricketers. People, by and large, cannot stomach the truth, which at times are bitter to chew..

He said Indian culture doesn't produce leaders. We can say 'he doesn't know about our great culture' ... ok. But what if he is too close to truth ?

Why do we attach so much importance to what he says ? He may or may not be right in his observations. It is his opinion. He is probably talking only one aspect of Indian life. Does he know our life style, our values, systems ?

He has behaved very stupidly and to understand that what he has said is not right, one need not hate him like some one else has written
