Adam Gilchrist

Adam Gilchrist
Wicketkeeper
Left-handed batsman

Born: 14 November 1971
State: Western Australia
Test appearances: 38
Debut: v Pakistan 1999/00

A sheer luxury coming in at seven.

Gilchrist is a wonderful batsman but he's certainly not the simple slogger some people make him out to be.

Watch him carefully and you'll notice that he bats himself in and doesn't score quickly at the start of his innings.

But once he knows the wicket and the bowlers... sit back and soak it up as he unleashes an amazing array of shots.

And his glove work behind the stumps has improved with time and experience, particularly in partnership with Shane Warne.
