Chappell, who has a two-year contract with the Indian team till the World Cup, and theBCCI have agreed to part ways after the mega event in West Indies next April, the Courier Mail daily reported without quoting any sources.
In a similar report, Herald Sun said "failure isn't an option in the cricket-obsessed country and there seems little doubt that Chappell, the 58-year-old former Australian captain, is on the way out."
The end of the union seems imminent after India's exit from the Champions Trophy following its six-wicket loss to Australia in Mohali on Sunday, the report said.
The papers noted that Chappell has been under media attack for experimenting with players by promoting younger ones.
