New Delhi: The clock has turned full circle. Now that another World Cup beckons after four long years, the bitterness of the famous spat of the World Cup in the West Indies seems to have subsided. Two characters were involved in that drama - Greg Chappell and Sachin Tendulkar.
At the end of it all, Chappell resigned after a controversial tenure as India's cricket coach but never has it been known as to what triggered the storm.
Just before the 2011 World Cup, Chappell, now an Australian selector finally breaks his four-year-long silence on the issue. Chappell admits, on Friday, faced with a similar scenario he would have handled Tendulkar differently. He would have completely left it to Tendulkar to pick his own batting order. It now emerges that the Australian wanted Tendulkar to bat in the middle order but the veteran was not too keen to relinquish his position in the top order during India's ill-fated campaign in the Caribbean World Cup.
