Many cricket boards are facing financial crisis due to stalled cricket activities due to Coronavirus. The Afghanistan Cricket Board has even started cutting the salaries of its coaching staff. At the same time, there are also reports that if India ends up in Australia later this year
If they do not visit, then Australia will suffer a lot and they may have to take a loan of millions of dollars.
At the same time, Greg Chappell, a former Australian player and former coach of the Indian cricket team, has expressed concern that when cricket starts after this epidemic, Test cricket will suffer a lot and if India does not help, then this format may also be over. .
Chappell said on a Facebook Live, “Test cricket will die the day India leaves it. I don’t see India, Australia and England investing in young cricketers to play Test cricket other than other countries.” “

Chappell went on to say “It is not that I am against T20. It is easy to sell it to the public. The economic issue for the Test is going to be massive. Indian captain Virat Kohli calls the Test as ‘Ultimate Cricket’. So hopefully it will survive. “
By the way, Chappell is counted among Team India’s worst coaches. In his book ‘Playing it My Way’, Sachin Tendulkar called Chappell a ringmaster, but during Chappell’s tenure, Team India won 17 matches in a year chasing runs. Before Chappell’s arrival, India’s run chase record was quite poor. It was during Chappell’s tenure that India won the West Indies after 35 years and in the same year India also won the first Test in South Africa.

During his tenure, Chappell also brought a player like Dhoni to India. Chappell was also surprised once seeing Dhoni’s strength. Talking about Dhoni, he said “I remember it strange when I first saw him batting. He was definitely India’s most exciting cricketer at that time. He was from the most unusual position Hit the ball. He is the most powerful batsman I have ever seen. “
