Greg Chappell Financial struggle.

The 75-year-old former captain of Australia, who previously served in a contentious capacity as the Indian team’s head coach from 2005 to 2007, acknowledged that while he is doing well, his cricket career has not translated into a lavish lifestyle.

“We’re not in dire problems, but we’re also not living in luxury, so I don’t want it to come off that way. I believe the majority of people believe that just because we played cricket, we all lead opulent lives. Although I’m by no means impoverished, we’re not benefiting to the same extent as today’s athletes are,” he remarked.

As per the report, Chappell “reluctantly” consented to the creation of a GoFundMe page for himself. Additionally, he said that he is not the only player from his era who faced financial difficulties, despite the fact that professional cricket has changed significantly since his retirement. Eddie McGuire hosted a testimonial lunch at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) last week, which was attended by cricket legends, including brothers Ian and Trevor.

“My friends realised that Judy and I weren’t getting much, and they just wanted to make sure we were comfortable in our retirement,” Chappell said.
To be fair, I don’t think the game has done enough for players from that age, and there are others in our generation who are in worse situations and could use the assistance. especially when considering the analogy with the modern period.”

Chappell said, “I think the players who laid the groundwork for what’s occurring now should definitely be acknowledged for their contribution to the development of the game to its current state.
