Australian cricket legends who have opened the Chappell brothers about Ian & # 39; s skin cancer fight – as well as the highs and lows of their career prior to the Ashes series.
Ian, Greg and Trevor appeared on An ongoing case on Monday after the 75-year-old commentator revealed that he had had intensive radiation therapy for five weeks to remove skin cancer from his shoulder, neck and forearm.
Ian, who made his test debut against Pakistan in 1964, blamed his health anxiety for ignorance – and the fact that hats were not fashionable during his 16-year career.
& # 39; You had the Australian cap or you had those stupid terry things that were useless, & # 39; he said.

Ian revealed that the death of the brothers' mother was a turning point for him, allowing him to understand the reality of death & # 39;
& # 39; Then I got a grip on it, and I realized that it is one thing that you know will happen, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; And I think it's better to get a grip on it instead of fighting it or fearing it. & # 39;
Ian remembered a moment when he first tried a Panama hat during his period at Wide World of Sports – and revealed that he was taunted by the legendary fast Jeff Thompson.
He said to me: & # 39; You look like a bloody cashier. & # 39;
Ian, who was the captain of Australia between 1971 and 1975, stopped wearing hats after the jibe.
But his young brother Greg, who made his test debut in 1970 against England and played his last game against Pakistan in 1984, was also popular for his stiff brim cricket hat with the small brown signature on the side.

Greg said he didn't hear about sunscreens until later in his life.
& # 39; There was no such thing, a little zinc cream on the nose was about as far as it went, & # 39; said Greg.
Their youngest brother Trevor, the only Chappell to score a World Cup century, remembered the infamous moment when Greg (then captain) asked him to deliver a forearm delivery in an ODI match against New Zealand in 1981.
NZ needed six runs on the last ball to win the game.
At that time a forearm delivery was not illegal, but the rest is history.
& # 39; That was probably Greg's only advice I shouldn't have taken, & # 39; said Trevor.
Greg said that Trevor had no option but to follow his instructions.
The cricket legends believe that Australia can reclaim the Ashes, which starts on Thursday.
& # 39; I am happy with the team we have for the Ashes, & # 39; Greg said, while Ian added that England was on the & # 39; edge of an abyss & # 39; used to be.
