Happy Birthday, Adam Gilchrist, three-time World Cup Winner!. He turns 46 today. A typical example of being a gentleman on and off the field. During his stint with Australia, he inspired people in the workspace. One of the fiercest openers to have graced the sport. That is why he was able to dominate the game with relative ease.
How many times have we bump into seeing bowlers fear to bowl against Gilchrist? The simplest of jobs he would do is that he would strike the ball with brute force. Apart from his exceptional batting skills, his wicketkeeping traits are widely known. He is one of the impeccable parts of Australian cricket history who has plied his wares quite well in the three World Cup finals he has played.
Adam Gilchrist knows what it is like to launch towering sixes and that comes from within him. Such is his principle in dealing the game in his own style. He makes his presence count either by wielding his bat at the crease or flaunt glimpses of street-smart moves in keeping the wickets. He was indeed the superman of Australian cricket in his greener pastures that he relished throughout.
Gilly has essayed 15,461 runs with an impeccable record of 905 dismissals as a wicketkeeper and a power hitter by trait to hit 262 sixes to keep the audience at the edge of the seats. He did everything to entertain the fans. He has a great fan following in India and he is one of the very few Australians to have no haters. He has all the ingredients to grind out the problems to bring to a firm solution.
