Former India coach Greg Chappell's new role as assistant coach of the Australian cricket team is causing quite a stir ahead of the four-Test series but the BCCI says it has no issues with the former Aussie captain.

"We have no issues with his new role. He's no longer with us (BCCI)," said BCCI secretary Niranjan Shah, who is to step down after completing his term at the two-day AGM here on September 27-28.

Chappell has recently taken over as the chief of Cricket Australia's Centre of Excellence and has come to India to prepare Ricky Ponting and his men for the rigours of the four-Test series against the hosts.

Shah said Chappell's tenure as India coach turned stormy because he chose to communicate with the players not directly but through the media.
