Greg Chappell is a former Australian cricketer and is considered a batting great. His brother is fellow Australian bowler Ian Chappell.

Early in his career, Greg Chappell received a letter from hotel concierge written by his father which contained a scathing newspaper article clipping written by cricket writer Keith Butler. Chappell's father Martin included the message, "I don’t agree with everything he said but it might be worth thinking about." Chappell canceled a dinner appointment that night and thought long and hard about his career so far. The article has changed Chappell’s career and he later said that it was something he is forever grateful for.
