Greg Chappel

Gregory Stephen Chappell was born on 7th of August 1948. He is a former cricketer who represented Australia at international level in both Tests and One-Day Internationals (ODI).

Since his retirement as a player in 1984, Chappell has pursued various business and media interests with maintaining connections to professional cricket. He has been a selector for national team, a member of the Australian Cricket Board, and a coach.
