Gregory Stephen Chappell is one of the greats of Australian cricket with his playing record speaking for itself. He has also made a significant impact off the field since calling stumps on his playing career.

In this edition of the Cricket Library Podcast, we hear from Greg about the origins of his passion for the game, breaking into First Class cricket & the crucial batting tip he received from Sir Donald Bradman.

Greg also shares about his epiphany moment sitting in his motel room reflecting on a letter from his father whilst playing against a World XI in Tasmania. His realisation lead to a shift in mindset that was followed by a run of big scores for Australia.

We take a closer look at his 247 not out against NZ in 1974 where he and brother Ian both made centuries in each innings of the game.

There are some wonderful insights regarding balancing playing cricket with a young family and holding down a job. 

Greg also shares about his time coaching in India and the key learning he took away from that experience.

Finally we hear about the important fundraising work that the Chappell Foundation is doing to provide a better future for thousands of young Australians without a roof over their head each night.
