Oh Boy Is He Great..............?

 
Cricket as we know is a Gentlemen's game, but we seldom see cricketers who behave like that.  One such instant is the Sydney Test.  But there was a man who created doubts in the minds of many people and he made them think of an  imaginary situation to see whether he might commit a mistake. This great personality is 
none other than the man who created a new dimension to  the art of Wicket Keeping  
"ADAM GILCHRIST".  It is impossible to fill his boots after this tri-series...
His announcement of retirement was a great shock to the cricketing world, but this shows the standards which he sets for himself. One drop chance makes him to think about retirement. I feel that, not 
only cricketers but every human being should learn a lot from him......


When he made his debut for Australia people thought that he wont be able to perform like Ian Healy, But he proved all wrong with his performance behind and also in front of the stumps..
He created a new dimension(Wicket Keeper/Batsman) in cricket. He always keeps the morale of the team high. The way he moves between overs gives enough time to the bowlers to think about the plan between delivaries. You cannot see a better player in appreciating the opponents on their performances, Gilly really stands tall with this quality...

Walker...

He had a great of quality of walking if he believes that he was undone by the bowlers. This made the job of the umpires very easy.  But now with the departure of Gilly and the beginning of the modern cricketers lying nature to win matches may lead to a position where the spirit of the game will be lost...

Now it is time for us to wait for a player who can fill the boots of Gilly behind stumps and the one in his honesty. For me the greatest records which he set was, the keeper with the maximum number of dismissals in test and ODI and also he is the only man in the history of game to have 100 test sixes.........

For me, he should have played for some more years only for two reasons. One is that he is the best entertainer globally, we indians have a craze on Sachin, but that is not the case around the world for him, but Gilly is liked by all kinds of people in any corner of the world for his well mannered behavior and debastating batting. Secondly his pink gloves, every victim of his will make the breast cancer research insitiute richer by 144,000$, if he had played for some more years, surely he would have made the institue more richer as it is his nature to get scalps...

But now its time for us to do honours for this great keeper who served Australian cricket and provided everyone of us the greatest entertainment of our time... Now looking forward to him in action in IPL..  Gilly! You always rock...............


Cheers!!!!!!

And is that pink ? I'm a lil' color blind so i can't really tell. If that is pink you should really consider getting a new bgcolor. You don't have to start sending out wrong signals, do you ?

Good post, BTW nice blog url, its good that you got to have yourname.blogspot.com. Not everyone get these urls. And try being a bit more wordy with your views. Is that all you have to say about Gilchrist really ?

Nice write up da..it was really good and readable all the way...

Gilli sure is a true sportsperson ,playing a game as it should be.But machan i totally oppose your view that sachin ,is unpopular outside India.Totally untrue.Men like Sachin,Lara,Mc.Grath,MUrali,Warne are all uncomparable to the other people da.They are legends and will be forever.

Thank you Vijay. What I meant is not only cricket but as a human Gilly is loved by the whole world.
We like sachin, lara, murali and warne for their cricket and not for genuine behaviour. Got it machi...............
