Ian Chappell was arguably the best captain Australian cricket has ever seen.  In his record 30 Tests as captain, Chappell lifted Australia from mediocrity to the champions of world cricket.  When he took over the captaincy in controversial circumstances, Australia was on the bottom after two shattering series losses against South Africa and England.  Under Chappell’s astute no-nonsense leadership, the Test side was moulded into a winning team.
Ian Chappell’s battling in 72 Tests and another 178 first-class matches is outstanding.  A powerful hooker and puller, his batting is based on watertight defence and ferocious determination.  In Tests he has scored more than 5,000 runs – only three Australians have scored more.  His achievement of 14 Test centuries is surpassed by only two Australian batsmen, Bradmen and Harvey.”
