Last updated on: January 22, 2007 15:17 IST

India coach Greg Chappell was slapped by a cricket supporter, named Biranchi Maharana, at the Bhubaneswar airport on Monday.

The man who belongs to the Kalinga Sena, a local political outfit in Bhubaneswar, was unhappy with Chappell because of the non-inclusion of Orissa players in the Indian team.

The Orissa police has arrested the man.

India and the West Indies play the second ODI of the series in Cuttack on January 24. The day-night encounter is scheduled to start at 1430 IST.
