Clearing all rumuours about his role as a a double agent, former India coach Greg Chappell said he possesses no classified information about the Indian team, and if he did, would not hand it over to his new employer Australia.
Chappel, who stepped down as coach of the Indian team more than 18 months ago, is presently touring with Ricky Ponting's men as an assistant to coach Tim Nielsen.
His mere presence with the Aussies for the four-match Test series has flared up rumours that he would pass on vital information regarding the Indian outfit to Nielsen.
However, Chappell, who is also advisor with the Rajasthan Cricket Academy, has rubbished such claims.
"To be quite honest we haven't discussed the Indian team. The Australians have played against India pretty regularly in recent times, I think they have got enough footage and personal experience with the Indian team to understand what they have to do," Chappell was quoted as saying by the Sydney Morning Herald.
"I don't feel I have any sensitive information, and professionalism suggests there are certain things that are not available to the Australians. Anyway, there is nothing I know that they don't know," he added. PTI
