Adam Gilchrist Supreme Entertainer Bows Out

Adam Gilchrist has been one of the most entertaining cricketers for some time. You just never knew what would happen when he came to the crease. Sometimes, like today, in likely his last test innings, when he was dismissed for 14, he still managed to almost take the umpires head off before departing in another typically unselfish innings, where he would either hit or miss.

Peter Roebuck sums him up nicely in this piece. A great cricketer and a great person.

Like Warne, he knew when to leave. Right at the top of his game. OK, maybe just a little after, but you never knew with those two. Still a potential match winner and only the nit picky would have complained if he had planned to play another few years. Always a potential match winner if he was at the crease. He was without doubt the greatest wicket keeper batsman ever.

His last international matches will be the one day series against India and Sri Lanka , coming up.

A great man I agree!

Particularly glad he won't be around for the next ashes.

Haddin can't be as good... can he!?

Haddin may be as good a wicket keeper , but he is a competent rather than a match changing batsman.
