Indian cricket: Greg Chappell worried over M S Dhoni-led team's Test future
The former Aussie skipper said Indian cricket should have the best side in the world as it has the natural advantage of huge population.
"The reason why it has not happened is the plans have not been put in place," Chappell said.
"It (India) should be the next cricket super-power. It should dominate cricket in the long-term. For that, changes are needed but not ad-hoc strategies," he said adding that India should win more matches away from home.
Praising Dhoni's batting skills, Chappell said the Indian skipper developed skills because of playing on a variety of surfaces.
"The step which is equally important is to provide facilities for everybody to play cricket. It is the environment rather than the academies that produce good players," he said.
He also suggested that BCCI's pitch and grounds committee should not try to make all pitches of the same type.
"Not every pitch needs to be the same. Each region has its own nuances," he said.
