Setting:Meeting between Kumble and Dhoni some time before the Delhi test, Delhi, October 2008
Kumble: Mahi, we really have to work hard and win this test...We have a real chance of beating those Aussies...Gilchrist's comment about Sachin being a bad sport is making my blood boil...
Dhoni: Jumbo, I'm worried too...Australia will kick our asses in the next two matches...
Kumble: What makes you so sure?
Dhoni: Well, Greg Chappell has returned to Australia and this means Australia's run of bad form and luck will end...He coached South Australia for 5 years and didn't win a thing...He coached us for 2 years and we were kicked out of the World Cup in the first round...He was Australia's assistant coach in the first 2 tests and they ended up playing miserably...I only wish they had retained him for the entire series...
