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.
