THE former Australian captain Greg Chappell was appointed yesterday to coach the South Australian state cricket squad 25 years after quitting the team to captain Queensland.

Chappell was recruited to help boost the state's flagging performances in the Sheffield Shield competition. The Redbacks finished last in the six-team tournament in 1997 and 1998 after winning the Shield in 1996.

"All I can try to do is call on my experience and knowledge to come up with things that can help them in the areas they feel they need help," Chappell said.

In addition to coaching the side, Chappell will also develop new talent for future state and national sides.
