Climbing the Everest is the toughest task in the world? Naah! Ever tried finding haters of Adam Gilchrist? If you have lots of time to waste maybe you can try! Cause he ain’t got one!
Churchy as he was called, is undoubtedly one of the greatest wicket-keepers that have ever played this game. The destructive power with the bat, agility behind the stumps and sportsmanship at its best came together and made Adam Gilchrist. If Sachin is the synonym of masterclass, Dravid is synonym of solidity and reliability, Gayle is the synonym of destruction and power then Gilchrist is certainly the synonym of “Spirit of Cricket”.
As Gilly turned 44, Twitterati poured in birthday wishes to the great man. Sachin Tendulkar was one among those to wish Gilly. His tweet read, “One of the best men to have ever stood behind a wicket, @gilly381! A very Happy Birthday to you mate! I hope you catch all the good times!”

Sehwag wished Gilchrist in his own hilarious way tweeting, “Today is a day to play Gilli Danda as a tribute to the incredible @gilly381. Happy Birthday Adam Gilchrist.”

Fans called him a cricketer who changed the role of wicket keeper forever! Brutal yet beautiful! Some tweeted about the incident of 2003 World Cup semi-final where he walked away without waiting for the umpire to raise his finger. Here’s wishing Gilly a very happy birthday!
Happy Birthday, Adam Gilchrist. The greatest wk batsman of all time and the player who never missed an international match due to fitness.
